Mama Elephant – You’re Tops in My Book

Thanks so much for stopping by again today! Still having fun digging through my stamps and today I rediscovered some Mama Elephant gems I picked up last summer. I wasn’t sure about the colors of this card when everything was separate but once I put it all together, I think it plays very nicely and turned out great!

I started this process by laying my stamps over my grid window die cut to see if things would fit how I wanted. When it did, I stamped my images from Book Worm, colored them and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Next I took an A2 size panel and inked it randomly with tumbled glass, peacock feathers and blueprint sketch distress oxide inks. I spritzed it with water and let it dry before running it through my die cut machine with the grid window die. Using the frame as a guide I glued the square pieces directly to my card base and then popped the frame up with foam tape. I love the dimension this gives. It’s such a cool look.

Next, I adhered my images with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape so they laid nice and flat across the window openings. Then I stamped my sentiment from Good Reads and cut it out by hand. This is adhered the same as the other images.

Finally, I moved on to finishing touches. I added black glaze pen to the eyes, glossy accents to the glasses and some book spines and white gel pen to all the images. Lastly, I added some clay hearts from Honey Bee Stamps in a few various places. I think this adds just a little accent of love and I really like what it does for the overall design.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
