Hello there! This month we are celebrating a very special release for the Mama Elephant 8th Anniversary! Last year I was lucky enough to meet many of you at the Anniversary Celebration in New York City, and although we’re all staying at home and safe this year, we still got a big 3-day Mama Elephant Stampede with the Design Team and many awesome guests. The anniversary release is huge, and I mean triple the size huge than the typical release, so be sure to check out all amazing new products live in the Mama Elephant shop along with the biggest sale of the year!
Today’s project will be showcasing the new set illustrated by Aida Zamora called Toasty Friends. This insanely adorable set features several critters as they enjoy some smores and hot cocoa in a cozy scene. I stamped several of the images from the stamp set and colored them up with copic markers. I then usd the coordinating dies to die cut the images out.
I created an indoor background through ink blending by using washi tape for masking and a simple stripe stencil. This easily created a place where I can place the fireplace and build a scene with my critters around it. I die cut the background with the Frilly Window die that gives it the cute scallop frame and details. I backed it against a green plaid pattern paper.
I selected a sentiment from the Toasty Friends stamp set and heat embossed it in white in the top center portion of the card. The images were propped up with some foam tape for a little extra dimension, and that completes this sweet and simple scene card!
This post is part of the Mama Elephant July Stampede! To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is picking 3 winners to win their choice of stamp set! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. You have up to 4 chances to qualify to win!
