Adorable Christmas Card Using Mama Elephant “Yappy Woofmas” Set!

Hey lovelies!
Are you all preparing for Christmas yet? There have been so many amazing sets being released lately it’s hard not to think about the holidays! I couldn’t wait to dive in to this lot of cuties from the Mama Elephant “Yappy Woofmas” set! I have two dogs of my own, meaning I have a serious soft spot when there’s a new set filled with cute dogs!

I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers. I ended up only using three of them for this card and set the others aside for a separate project! I added blush to their cheeks with a pink coloured pencil, as well as details and highlights using a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.

I die cut a panel using the Mama Elephant “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and cut some windows on my panel with the Lawn Fawn “Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables” dies to keep with the stitched theme! Once I was finished with die cutting I splattered some silver and pale gold metallic watercolour paint on my panel, unfortunately this doesn’t show too well in photos but it adds a lovely shimmer to the card when it hits the light!

I used Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide ink and blended it on to some white card stock before spraying it with my distress sprayer. I cut this in to sections to become the backgrounds of the windows in my panel!

I stamped my sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Winter Skies” set directly on to my panel using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I adhered the backgrounds to the smaller hearts directly against the back of the panel, but added some foam tape for the larger heart to add some depth. I popped my little dogs in place and adhered my panel to my card base!

I Miss You Friendship Card Using Distress Inks!

Hello lovelies! ❤

I cut a panel from white card stock and picked which distress ink colours I wanted to work with (colours used & links will be listed at the end of this post!). The sun was shining so it only seemed right to go for some red, yellow and pink for that summery feel! I placed the inks directly on to my glass craft mat and sprayed with some water, then smooshed my panel on the surface to pick up the colour remembering to dry between each layer for a textured feel. When I was happy with how  it looked I splattered it with some gold metallic watercolour paint from my Gansai Tambi “Starry Colors” palette and set aside to dry.

I created my card base and top panel using white card stock and rounded the corners with a corner punch. I then cut some black matte paper larger than my top panel and rounded the corners for a cohesive look and adhered to my card base. To finish my top panel I die cut the stitched heart window with Lawn Fawn’s Outside In Stitched Heart stackable dies.

For my sentiment I decided to go with the “I Miss You” stamp from Simon Says Stamp “Seeing Stars”. I treated some black card stock with my EK Success powder tool, stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Altenew Pure White embossing powder. I cut it down in to a thin sentiment strip and adhered it across the back of my stitched heart using my regular tape runner.

To finish the card I backed the stitched heart panel with foam tape and adhered it to the ink smooshed panel, then adhered it to my card base using my regular tape runner.
