The Mama Elephant stamp set called Best Gift Ever is illustrated by the talented Natalia Skripko. These kiddies are just the cutest and I absolutely love the whimsy style of her illustrations.
I stamped every single image in this set and colored them up with copic markers. Then I used the matching creative cuts to die cut each of these images out. I especially love the girl hugging the teddy bear. Aren’t they all just the sweetest?
Another awesome addition this month are the new big sentiment die cuts, and the one I used here is called Big Oh So Jolly CC. These sentiments are handwritten and have an adorable style that fits so well with adorable stamp sets! I die cut the word out of a mauve card stock and ink blended white pigment ink to lighten it from the top down and some Blueprint Sketch distress oxide to darken it from the bottom up.
I also ink blended a background with Blueprint Sketch, Victorian Velvet, and Squeezed Lemonade distress oxide inks. I then die cut the background with the large rectancular die from Framed Tags – Hexastar to add a the scallop detailing, and adhered it against a kraft A2 sized background. The sentiment was then glued down, followed by all the colored images added with foam tape.
