Hello everyone! I’m still making cards to send to friends and family for a little break in the day. I hope it’s making them smile and as fun for them as it is for me to make and send. I recently pulled out my Mama Elephant Stackable Cuties to play with and made a couple of cards with them.
When I get an inkling like this, I usually stamp and color a bunch of images and make cards afterward. Here is the first one.
To make this card, I die cut the My Favorite Things Arched Window (the next to the largest) from a white cardstock panel that measures 4×5.25. I took the window it cuts out and used my Newton’s Nook clouds stencil to ink up some sky using my Trinity Stamps blending buddy brush and a blue dye ink. Then I die cut a second arch, inked it up with green and die cut it with my grass die from the Newton’s Nook land borders dies. I adhered these together, added my critters and glued it to my card front.
Using my MISTI, I added a couple of appropriate speech bubbles from the same stamp set and then popped my frame up around the scene with foam tape.
I finished this card off with glossy accents on the noses, kitty’s fish and puppy’s bone. Then I scattered some Your Next Stamp gumdrops across the design. Very last, I added black glaze pen to the eyes and white gel pen accents to the images.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
