Mama Elephant May 2019 Stampede

Hello and welcome to the Mama Elephant May 2019 Stampede! The newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!

Summer is just around the corner and we are just dreaming of days on the beach, basking in the sun, and enjoying the beautiful outdoors. This release has got me squealing from all its cuteness and I’m excited to start sharing my projects with you!

Aida brings us the sweetest set this month, not just one but TWO!  The playful elephants are from the set called Summer Splash and the little chicks are from Beach Chickies. These two sets are just meant for each other and are so fun to play with together or alone!

As usual, I like to stamp my images first and color them up with copic markers, then die cut the images out with their coordinating Creative Cuts. I heat embossed the wavey lines in white onto a piece of white card stock and ink blended opposite sides of those lines, with one side being the water and the other side being the sand. On the sand side I generously added a fine splatter of brown and white paint to create that sandy texture.

I borrowed a sentiment from Picnic With Friends, which I stamped in the top right corner in dark brown. Then, I started added each of the cute characters to the card and adhering them with foam tape. I had originally wanted to add more in, but I ran out of space. So you’ll definitely be seeing more beachy scenes with these guys again soon!
