Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Crafted with Love

The Mama Elephant Crafted with Love set is a set that every cardmaker out there should own! Not only is it an absolutely adorable set, but it is a set that all of us can relate to so well. I really envisioned myself in this scene when I created this card, even down to creating ombre ink blended backgrounds hung in the left corner. Aren’t they adorable?

I tried something new on this card, that is, stamping my images in Lawn Fawn Crunchy Leaf ink. It is a much lighter brown than what I normally use, and my hope was to create a softer look. What do you think? I colored the images with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to die cut each image out.

Given that these critters are using wood stumps as their tables, it felt fitting to bring this scene outdoors, so I used the Grassy Hills Trio CC to die cut out several layers of grass out of Sour Apple card stock. Each layer was gently blended with Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink to add a little extra definition to each layer.

The sky was ink blended with Shaded Lilac and Spun Sugar distress oxide inks. I heat embossed a sentiment from Handcrafted Happiness in silver, and layered on my grass onto the card.

My images were added to the card with foam adhesives, creating little scenes throughout the card on different layers of the grass, and the little ombre backgrounds hung in the top left corner. It is such a sweet scene!
