Mama Elephant 7th Anniversary Stampede Day 1

 
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!


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

 
 

I am delighted to be joining Mama Elephant their 7th Anniversary celebrations today. I have two projects to share with you using the wonderful new Oh Puppy Tree set.
 

For my card, I started off by creating the background. I wanted a sparkly, snowy scene so I first blended on a layer of Distress Inks on to a panel of white cardstock with blending brushes. I used Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch for the first layers and then added some darkness at the top with Chipped Sapphire. For the sparkly effect, I spritzed over Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spritz and then Distress Spray Stain in Picket Fence. The piece was then set aside to dry.
 
 
I took the puppy tree image from the Mama Elephant Oh Puppy Tree Stamp Set and stamped it on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The image was then coloured with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and then die cut out using the coordinating dies.
 
 
I added the background panel flat to an A2 white card base with tape runner and then added the puppy tree on top with foam tape. I took the sentiment from the set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white detail embossing powder and heat set. This was then cut out using the Mama Elephant Sentiment Strips Dies and added to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added Tonic Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen to parts of the image for even more sparkle.
 

Next up, I created two tags with the same design as the card. I cut the tag die from the Mama Elephant Basic Set Dies twice from white cardstock. I then blended Distress Inks on to them. For the blue tag, I used Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch and for the purple one, I used Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet. These were then spritzed with the same shimmer spray, as well as the Picket Fence Distress Spray Stain and set aside to dry.
 
 
I stamped the two individual puppies from the Mama Elephant Oh Puppy Tree Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. They were coloured with Copic Markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. I also die cut snowbanks for the puppies to stand on with the Mama Elephant Landscape Trio Dies and the hole reinforcer from white cardstock.
 
I took two sentiments from the Mama Elephant Mini Merry Messages Stamp Set and stamped these on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white detail embossing powder and heat set. These were then cut in to strips.
 
 
I first adhered the snowbanks to the tags with tape runner and then added the puppies on top with foam tape. The sentiments were added on next, again with foam tape. I then adhered the hole reinforcer with liquid glue and added bows made with black twine on top. To finish off, I added Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the puppies noses.
