Christmas in August #3 | Mama Elephant

Hi everyone! I created my third Christmas card this year (still cannot believe it ;-) ) using again many different Mama Elephant products.


For the background I diecut a piece of white cardstock with the 'all prettied up' die and used two of the 'landscape trio' dies and also the 'snow capped mountains' dies on the same piece of paper, so that I get a nearly one layer background. I used hickory smoke distress oxide ink for the mountains and cracked pistachio oxide ink for the sky.

Then I stamped the images from 'tandem ride', 'a beary Christmas' and 'a cookie Christmas' with Memento tuxedo black and colored them in with Copics. After die cutting the images I adhered them to the background and added the sentiment from 'mini messages'.


Last but not least I chose a light pink cardbase to match the colors of the scene.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Lawn Fawnetics Challenge No. 34 | My favorite Place

Hello everyone! I am playing along the Lawn  Fawnetics Challenge No. 34 which is about favorite places. 


When I went through my Lawn Fawn stamps I saw the 'Sweet Friends' stamp set which is so adorable and I thought - who wouldn't like to live in a dreamy, sweet wonderland? :)
So this is defnitely an unreal destination but I liked the imagination.


I started by stamping a bunch of different images to create a sweet scene with Memento tuxedo black. Beside Sweet Friends I also used the sets 'rub-a-dub-dub' and 'So smooth'. Then I colored everything with Copic markers and diecut it.

For the background I used the largest of the 'stitched rectangles large' dies and added scattered straw and dried marigold disress ink. I used one of the 'simple stitched hillside borders' as a stencil too. To create a grass border I used one of the 'meadow borders' dies and peeled paint distress ink.

I also diecut some clouds from the 'pivot pop-up' die set and colored them in with spun sugar and milled lavender distress ink.


Then I adhered everything to the background with my favorite adhesive which is the Lawn Fawn Glue tube.

The sentiment is from the rub-a-dub-dub stamp set.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a relaxed day!

Christmas in August #2 | Mama Elephant

Hello everyone! One more Christmas card to show you in August - again I used many different products from Mama Elephant. I love when I am able to combine different sets.


I wanted to use the 'inside pop fence' die for my card front - using only the fence. So I created the background by blending some tumbled glass distress oxide ink on a piece of white cardstock which I had diecut before with the 'hillside cover' die.


Then I stamped the main images from 'a cookie Christmas' and chose several other sets to go along with the scene. The cute santa is from 'little santa agenda', the bird and some of the candy canes from 'reindeer game' I also used candy canes from 'wooly winter'.
I colored them all in with Copic markers. For the fence I used ground espresso distress oxide ink.


Too add more detail I used the Nuvo glitter accents in fresh snowfall all over the card. Last but not least I added two tiny glue dots with the Mono multi media adhesive and let them dry. Now you can close and open the fence :)


Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!
