Hip hip hooray! I’m joining in on Day 3 of the Mama Elephant 7th Anniversary Stampede along with a few other designers to round up this fabulous celebration with September Release inspiration (and you’ll be seeing TONS more from me throughout the month!). Earlier this month I also had the great pleasure to meet so many of you at the party held in NYC and some more few days ago in Instagram live. I have to say it was so amazing to be able to reach out to many of you and hope you guys feel the same! Hope to do this more in the future!
Mama Elephant September Release & Promotion
The September Release is EXTRA big to celebrate the Mama Elephant Anniversary! It consists of 10 new stamp sets and 15 new dies. Wow!
In addition to that, there are extra promotions including a 10% STOREWIDE sale (no code necessary) and additional freebies for different spending tiers. This is the best time to stock up on Mama Elephant!
Without going off track too much, I want to share with you the project for today featuring the adorable Oh Puppy Tree set. Many of us, including myself, have really wanted a puppy version of the Oh Kitty Tree released for last year’s holiday. I was very, very excited to see that they answered back and brought us this adorable set!
As you can see, this large image covers a lot of the card front. The images were stamped in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored with copic markers. It is definitely a feat to finish coloring this guy, but totally worth it. I also borrowed a few images from a coordinating set called Trim the Tree to add some more birds and ornaments around the image. All images were die cut using the coordinating dies.
To really highlight the grandeur of this puppy tree, I ink blended a background with rays coming outward from the tree with a stencil. The background was ink blended with Peacock Feathers and Old Paper distress oxide inks. I also added a light splatter of white paint. I love how the simple ink blended rays add so much impact!
I completed the card with the sentiment ‘bring on the merry’ from Scripty Xmas stamp set. I heat embossed it onto white card stock in silver, and then used the tag die from Framed Tags – Madison Avenue to get the banner. All pieces were added to the card with foam adhesive.
