We had a special 60th birthday a few days ago and I wanted to make a card to go with our surprise presents. The ‘Woodland Gift’ stamp set from Mama Elephant was so perfect for this idea as the cute animals can hold gifts and treats!
The grass and sky were created in a similar way to my last card, using Distress Inks and lots of water. I stamped the bear, bunny, balloon and log and coloured with copics before cutting out with the coordinating dies – I trialled doing partial cuts with the dies and it worked a treat! The balloon and bunny are all one piece but I die cut them using the edge of my cuttlebug B plates. An amazing idea (one I think I saw Jennifer Mcguire use) and will definitely try it again when I need two images to look like one.
The sentiment was stamped with a WPlus9 stamp and I added a touch of Wink of Stella clear to the balloon to add some sparkle and shine.
I’m really loving the Mama Elephant stamps at the moment (don’t worry, a Lawn Fawn card is coming up shortly!). There are lots of new release sneak peeks being shown and new products going on sale in the next few weeks so I can’t wait to see what I’m going to add to my crafty wish list! :o)
