Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Season's Wishes

Hello and welcome!
Today Mama Elephant Design Team is highlighting the Season's Wishes stamp set. This essential set includes a gorgeous oversize scripty greeting with sweet companion sentiments for your Holiday projects. 

I have two Holiday cards to share with you. Both cards are A2 size and I colored the images with Copic markers and used combination of Distress Inks and Distress Oxides to ink the panels.

For the first card, I inked the background panel and added splatters of water. Once dried, I adhered the reindeer from  Little Reindeer Agenda and Santa Claus on the sled from Little Santa Agenda that I cut with coordinating dies. Then, I flicked some diluted white acrylic paint to make it look like it's snowing. 

I inked the front panel as shown and die-cut it with the Window Watching creative cuts. Using the same dies, I die-cut white cardstock and adhered the cut out pieces to the front panel. I stamped the smaller sentiment from Season's Wishes with black Versamark ink and mounted the tree from Cozy Christmas and the star banners from Sentiments From A Yeti with foam tape to add dimension. 

To finish, I adhered the front panel to the background panel with dimensional foam tape.

My second project is a fun spinning wheel card that was inspired by Sandy Allnock . If you click on her name, it'll direct you to her Youtube video. The video will give you detailed explanations of how to make cards like this.

To begin, I die-cut Bristol cardstock with the large frame from Peek A Frame creative cuts. Then, on the same panel I die-cut the the circle using the second smallest circle die from Sew Fancy creative cuts to create a window for the wheel. I inked the panel and stamped the snowflakes from Holly's Snowflakes with Versamark ink and added Pearl embossing powder and heat set it. Then, I stamped the large sentiment "Season's Greetings" from Season's Wishes with Versamark ink and heat embossed white embossing powder.

To make the wheel, I die-cut Bristol cardstock with a circle die that is similar width of the front panel. I stamped the the images from Little Reindeer Agenda and Little Santa Agenda on post-its and fussy cut them out so that I can do some masking. Then, I stamped the images to the die-cut circle (watch Sandy's video to see how it's done). Just for the Santa and the his two reindeer, I stamped and masked the Santa with the cut out Post-it and then stamped the two reindeer so that the Santa can look like he's standing in front of them. Then, I adhered all the cut out post-it images on the wheel and inked it to match the front panel.  After, I removed the Post-its and added splatters of diluted white acrylic paint to make it look like it's snowing.

To help the wheel spin, I die-cut white card stock using the smallest circle from Sew Fancy creative cuts.  On the circle, I attached a brad in the center and foam tape (see second photo for this project). I adhered the other side of the small circle to the top folding card base. Then, I added the wheel to the small circle with the brad as shown in the photo above. To finish, I added foam tape to the top and the bottom of the card base and adhered the front panel on the top.
