Mama Elephant November 2018 Stampede

Hello and welcome to the Mama Elephant November 2018 Stampede! The newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!

My project features the newest addition to the Little Agenda family, the Little Agenda Bear! How many of you do a little happy dance when you see a new set added to this line? Cause I’m definitely dancing with you!

I had extra love for this little bear with the mustache and top hat. I envisioned him courting another sweet little bear with his charm with the little cupid bears floating around this romantic scene, as we know, these cupids are pulling all the strings! I stamped the images in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them with copic markers. Then, I used the coordinating dies to die cut the images out.

I created a frame for the images. I used Natural card stock and the new standalone dies called Framed Tag – Waverly to die cut the large scallop frame. I then die cut a smaller stitched frame using the Scallop Square Box dies.

I used some post its to mask off the corners, and heat embossed a little floral embellishment in white using the Heart in Bloom stamp set. Before pulling the post its off, I also gently blended a touch of Aged Mahogany and Tattered Rose distress oxide inks.

Using the same distress oxide ink colors, I blended an ombre background behind the window. I carried the same ink colors over to a strip of paper, and heat embossed the sentiment ‘kiss kiss, i love u’, which is from the Pandamonium stamp set. I added the sentiment strip below the window and the bears to the card with foam squares. How sweet is this card?
