Wohoo it’s a birthday stampede for Mama Elephant! Can they really be two already? Wow they seem to have been with us creating awesome products for longer! Hopefully you’ve arrived here from the fabulous Pamela Ho but if not then you can start at the beginning on the Mama Elephant blog :D
I played with the new Peace on Earth set today and boy did I have fun! The set comes with two beautiful script sentiments and then lots of little icons to too – crystals, doves, stars, bow, leafy sprig! You name it and it probably is in there LOL. I made two cards one using a gorgeous sentiment and the other using the small bits and pieces :D
I love the little sprig and the gorgeous crystals that come in the set and I had the idea of hanging one from the other. However, I also wanted to go cute with this card so I employed the previously released Just Hatched set and turned the chick into a Christmas Partridge! I loved Googling partridge pictures to see how to get the colour on this little guy right :D He was stamped in Memento tuxedo black, coloured with Copics and then die cut with his matching die. On a white tag the sprig image is stamped a few times and given a little basic Copic colouring, then the ornament thread is stamped so that the crystal appears to be handing from the partridges wing :D After colouring, I gave the crystal a good dose of Zig wink of Stella clear glitter pen and then Glossy Accents too so in real life this really sparkles! The sentiment from Just Hatched is stamped in Coral Reef and cut with it’s matching die. I love how the same set can give you two totally different cards from cute to elegant in flash.
I used the same colours for this card; stamping the sentiment on patterned paper and then silver heat embossing before cutting the base of the panel with one of the Speech Trio dies and foam mounting it over some more patterned paper (reminded me of poinsettias) adhered to the card base. A little loopy twine and a few sequins were all that was need to let the gorgeous font shine :D
Have fun as next on the hop is the awesome
