Mama Elephant October Stampede Blog Hop

Hello and happy Monday! The Mama Elephant October Release is here and my, oh my, I’m sure you’ll love everything and enjoy all the inspiration from the team today! Perhaps you’re still a little hung over from the Mama Elephant 6th Year Anniversary Release, but you’ll be excited to see how beautifully thismonth’s release pairs up with all your September goodies with the tags, the sentiments, the extra pop-up features…keep them coming!
Today’s card features Luli Bunny’s holiday set called Let’s Go Caroling and a new word die called Falala Script. Of course these two products go perfectly together! This set was so cute, I left nothing uncolored, but for this card, I stamped the bear, bunny, cat, and lamppost in dark brown hybrid ink and colored them with copic markers. I added a few head accessories to the critters too.
Since I had a lamppost in the scene, I decided to sync up my background with it, but adding a soft glow coming from it. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Tea Dye, Seedless Preserves, and Aged Mahogany distress oxide inks to blend my background. I came back with some splatter of water and white paint.
I decided to use some white glitter card stock paper for the ‘falala’ script. However, I added three more layers of it in white card stock for the added thickness since the white glitter paper was rather thin. I also used the same white glitter card stokc to die cut the snowy ground using Landscape Trio CC. Can you see the shine? I also added a following sentiment from Holiday Messages which I heat embossed in white onto a grey card stock.
I framed the entire scene with the large frame from Lafayette CC. I just love the curves of this frame adding a touch of elegance. The frame was added with faom tape along with all the images for the dimensions. Fa la la la!
