MAMA ELEPHANT 7TH ANNIVERSARY STAMPEDE DAY 2


Welcome to a very special Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop! We are celebrating 7 years this month with a fantastic new holiday release along with our amazing friends!

Here is the promotional flyer for this year's celebration. We've added an extra freebie tier this time around!



You can shop the newest release which is LIVE in our store now!

My projects today features the adorable new Fuzzy Hugs stamp set along with the new Winter Forest Cover Creative Cuts. 

The first project I'm sharing is a fun shaker card. 


To begin, I stamped the bunnies from the Fuzzy Hugs stamp set with light gray ink and colored them with Copic Markers. After, I used the coordinating Fuzzy Hugs CC to cut them out.

The background was ink blended with Distress Oxides and the front panel was die-cut with the Winter Forest Cover Creative Cuts. I love this new die; it makes scene building so easy! 

I assembled my shaker card and filled the inside with loose glitter. I also glued on glitter to some of the areas on the front panel as shown. To finish, I foam mounted the colored image. To ground the image, I added shadows with Copics.

I stamped the sentiment "Fuzzy Hugs and Warm Wishes" inside the card. 





For the second project, I stamped the images from the Fuzzy Hugs stamp set with light brown ink and colored them with Copic Markers. After, I used the coordinating Fuzzy Hugs CC to cut them out.


Once again, I ink blended the background with Distress Oxides.  

 I also die-cut the front panel with Winter Forest Cover Creative Cuts.

I heat embossed the sentiment "Warm Holiday Hugs" from  Fuzzy Hugs and die-cut it with a die from the Sentiment Flags Creative Cuts (free with $200 or more purchase).

To assemble the card, I glued the front panel to the background panel, After, I foam mounted the colored images and the sentiment as shown. Lastly, I added splatters of white ink to create snow.
