Mama Elephant October 2017 Stampede



Welcome to the Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop!

Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!




www.mamaelephant.com

I have two projects to share with you today for the blog hop. My first project features one of my new favorite critter stamp set, Whimsical Winter and the coordinating CC along with On The Hills CC.


I colored the images with Copic markers and added accents with a white Gelly Roll pen. For the background panel, I inked an A2 size Bristol panel with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide and Tattered Rose Distress Ink. After, I splattered white acrylic paint onto the panel and the images with a paint brush to create a snowy look.



For the front panel, I trimmed acetate to 4. 1/4" x to 6.".  I made it little longer than A2 size so that the extra 1/2" could be adhered to the back of the background panel. To hide that and to create space for the sentiment and message, I added a card base behind it. The sentiment stamped inside the card is from the new set, Peaceful Wishes (see photo below).


On the front panel, I adhered die-cut pieces of the hills and clouds using On the Hills Creative Cuts. I used Tumbled Glass Distress Inks on the top of the snowy hills to add some color. I love that the hills and cloud dies included in On The Hills CC die-cuts a perfect size for a vertical A2 size panel.



For the second project, I added fun surprise elements inside the card. I used the new Inside Pop Celebrations CC for an interactive 3D design that's perfect for adding little images. The card also features the Me And My Yeti, Sentiments From A Yeti and Holly's Snowflakes stamp sets. 



I colored the images with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating CC. I die-cut the box, the hills inside, and the balloons using the Inside Pop Celebrations CC.



 I inked the front panel with Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks, and added splatters of water and white dots for a textured look. Once it dried, I loosely stamped the snowflakes from Holly Snowflakes with white pigment ink. Then, I applied white embossing powder and heat set it. For the sentiment and the banner, I used Sentiments From A Yeti. The banner was die cut with Yeti Banner CC.

Are you ready to see the hidden elements inside the card?


When you open the card, the box with the small images, and the Yeti will pop-up. So fun, right? You can't see it in the picture well, but I also added the snowflakes from Holly's Snowflakes again, I stamped them along the edges of the inside of the card. 


How amazing is the new Inside Pop Celebrations CC?  It's so fun and unique, definitely a must have!

  3. Oh, Amy - both of your cards are just magical!! I love the idea of your first card with the acetate and the scene on the front. I'm inspired and will CASE the design. Thank you for explaining how you achieved it. The Yeti on the second card always makes me smile and I'm not even a Yeti girl, but I sure love Mama Elephant's Yeti!
