Mama Elephant Designer Series: FBA- Santa, Elf, Snow, Deer

Hello everyone! Amy here with a Designer Series project featuring the Favor Bag Accessories, Santa-Elf and Snow-Deer Creative Cuts.

To begin, I trimmed four Bristol papers to A2 size panels. I inked each panel with just one color. Going clockwise in the photo above, I used Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violets, Picked Raspberry, and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks. To create a snowy background on the panels, I splattered diluted (with water) Copic Opaque White Ink with a paint brush.

I stamped the sentiment "Season's Greetings" from Christmas Scene with Versamark Ink, applied gold embossing powder and set it with a heat tool. Through this process I learned that embossing powders don't stick to white splatters very well, so going forward I'm going to stamp the sentiment first, cover it with the stamp (so that the the splatters won't get on it), and then add the splatters.

To make the adorable characters for the cards and the gift bags, I die-cut the FBA Santa Elf and Snow-Deer with white and colored cardstocks. I inked the edges of the die-cuts with Distress Inks to create some dimension. I added rosy cheeks with pink chalk that I applied with a Q-tip.  I assembled them as shown in the photos.

To add interest to the cards, I used a Snow Marker that I puffed up with a heat tool on the Santa Claus clothes. I added a small gold bell on the Elf's hat, mini Christmas lights (bought at my local craft store) around the reindeer antlers, and a bow that I made using All Prettied Up Creative Cuts on the snowman.

The next four projects are Holiday gift bags I made with the Favor Bag Creative Cuts and FBA Santa Elf and Snow-Deer Creative Cuts. Like the cards, I die-cut the Favor bags with Bristol paper, inked the backgrounds with Distress Inks and added white splatters.

For each bag, I die-cut white cardstock using the snowflake die from Snow Flurries Creative Cuts. I applied Wink Of Stella to add sparkle. I also die-cut white cardstock using the Mini Tags Creative Cuts. I stamped the tags with different Holiday sentiments from Mini Messages with dye inks. To finish, I added a snowflake and a tag to a twine and tied it around each bag.
