Mama Elephant January 2020 Release Stampede

How excited are you for the Mama Elephant January Release!? Whenever the releases take a break, I always get extra excited (and sometimes a little impatient) for the releases to come back! Well we’re back and ready to partaaay!

Today I’ll be sharing inspiration with you featuring the newest Aida Zmora illustrated set called Pinata Party. I could not find a cuter and happier bunch of party animals! They look like they are having absolutely a blast. My images were stamped in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored with copic markers. They were then die cut with the matching Creative Cuts.

I ink blended a soft background to match my party critters with distress oxide inks and heat embossed a birthday sentiment from Scripty Bday in white on the top left side. I framed the background with Framed Tags – Lafayette that was die cut out of white card stock.

I “hung” the pinata up to the top of the scene and secured it with foam tape, then assembled the partying animals in the space below. I added a few jewels surrounding the scene for a little extra bling!
