Christmas Card #15 | Mama Elephant

Hi everyone! I created this Christmas card trio on the weekend with lots of shimmer and glitter. When is glitter more appropriate than at Christmas? :)

I started by diecutting the 'Tea Time' die from Mama Elephant three times and heat embossed images from 'Cool Penguins', 'Santa's Sleigh' und 'Little Reindeer Agenda' with sparkle gold embossing powder. 

After covering all the images with maksing paper I blended fired brick and ground espresso distress inks. With aged mahagony color I added some mistletoes from 'a beary Christmas' to the background. The lower parts of the tea pots were decorated with Nuvo Glitter Accents in winter cranberry.

All the images are colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker. I decided to go with a brown watercolor background. The Gansai Tambi starry colors added shimmer to the background. I decorated the three square backgrounds with glitter accents (I used Nuvo glitter drops and some gold sequins).

After letting everything dry I adhered the backgrounds and teapots to a white metallic cardbase. The sentiments were diecut with the 'Twinkle Towns' die from glitter cardstock.

And here is also a small photostory :)

I wish you all have a shimmery start into the new week!

Christmas Card #14 | Mama Elephant

Hello everyone! I had so much fun creating the slider card from Christmas Card #12 that I decided to make another one. This time the main focus is on the 'litte agenda trains'.

I started with creating the background. I used the 'landscape trio' dies to make some DIY stencils and added color with distress oxide inks to get a winter scene. To round things up I diecut the paper with the 'sew fancy' die. I also cut a slit thouth the paper for the slider part.

Then I stamped all the images from 'little agenda trains', 'little santa agenda', 'little reindeer agenda', 'little elf agenda' and 'santa's sleigh' with Memento tuxedo ink and colored them with Copic markers. I adhered a strip of acetate to the back of the train and wagon. 

In order to prepare the slider mechanism I used foam tape on the back of the card and cut a piece of white cardstock. I adhered the acetates with the images onto the slider and added a sentiment from 'His love'.

After that I adhered all the other images to the card and chose a second sentiment from 'Christmas scene'. Last but not least I added some details with Nuvo glitter accents and Nuvo drops.

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