Mama Elephant – Special Delivery

Hi again! Today I have another fun Mama Elephant card featuring some goodies that I recently picked up from Doodlebugs but are from older releases. First up was this adorable Little Agenda Airplane set. I started with just these cute parachuters but the airplanes and combining them is going to be so much fun!

I started by stamping a bundle of images and just had relaxing fun watercoloring them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out and went back to my stash to decide on a background for my cute critters.

I came across the Postage Frame dies and realized I hadn’t used them yet, also how cute would they be with these floating packages and letters! So I cut the main die from kraft cardstock not realizing it cuts a frame and the center pops out. I took the opportunity to ink the edges on the inside piece with white pigment ink to make it stand out from the frame a little. Then I used my images as a guide for where to stamp my sentiment.

Once that was stamped, I added foam tape to the frame and insert and popped them up on a white card base. I added the clouds and falling letters with liquid glue and popped the other images up on foam squares.

For finishing touches I added black glaze pen to the critter eyes and white gel pen highlights to various parts of the images. I added glossy accents to the critter noses and postage on the packages and envelopes.

I’ve been making a big push to create extra “just because” cards to send when the moment strikes me. It seems that I have those moments when I have no appropriate cards available or time to make one. So, I guess that’s a goal now this year to make sure I have them around anytime.
