Mama Elephant’s celebrating 6 years Anniversary Release Stampede

 
Hello and welcome to Mama Elephant’s #celebrating6years Anniversary Release Stampede! I am so honored to participate this exciting event.  The release is live and available for purchase in the Mama Elephant shop!

I am here showcasing Mama Elephant – Cool Penguins Stamp set. Christmas is around the far corner. It is never too early to make Christmas cards. Do you agree with me?! Wink wink……… I created two cards to share with you!
< Card 1 >
 
To begin with, I stamped all images from Mama Elephant Cool Penguins Stamp set onto Bristol Smooth paper and colored with Kuretake Zig Clean Color Brushes. Then I cut them with Mama Elephant Cool Penguins Coordinating Dies and set aside.
I started to prepare my background. First of all, I die cut an A2 panel using Mama Elephant Hill Cover-Creative Cuts and I ink blended each bottom of hill with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in Squeezed Lemonade and Cracked Pistachio. on the top edges of hills, I added Multi Medium Matte and poured Vintage Glass Glitter to create snow effect. I die cut a frame using Mama Elephant Madison Avenue- Creative Cuts and lightly ink blended l with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in Picked Raspberry, then I attached it onto the background with foam tapes.
I adhered all selected images using Multi Medium Matte and foam tapes to the background panel. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock using VersaMark embossing ink and poured WOW! embossing powder with heat. I hand cut the fish tail ribbon and attached it with some wavy dimension to finish.

It’s perfect to create a snowy day for penguins to enjoy so I decided to go for a cooler scene. I repeated my very first step from last card making. I stamped all images from Mama Elephant Cool Penguins Stamp set onto Bristol Smooth paper and colored with Kuretake Zig Clean Color Brushes. Then I cut them with Mama Elephant Cool Penguins Coordinating Dies and set aside.
First, I cut the crossed stitched frame using a die from Mama Elephant Sew Fancy – Creative Cuts and ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in Tumbled glass, then I attached it onto an A2 card panel using foam tapes.
I splattered Tumbled glass and water mixture by tapping a watercolor brush onto the background to create snow in the air. And I also cut the center window using a die from Mama Elephant Union Square – Creative Cuts. I created snowy hills by cutting the negative part of window using Mama Elephant Ocean Waves Trio – Creative Cuts.
I adhered  all selected images using Multi Medium Matte and foam tapes to the background panel. I realized it was kinda empty in the window, so I picked an star light string image from Mama Elephant Merry Mantle Stamp Set. In the end, I stamped the sentiment to the lower portion of the card using Memento ink in Tuxedo Black.

    see the little critters wrapping theirs.

    The Cool Penguins are one of my fave sets. On the first card, the color combo is wonderful, and your scene-building skills are Fantastic.

  4. Teri S. says:

    The penguins are just so cute & I’m liking your cards so much, particularly card #1 with all of the dimension. The sentiments are a hoot too!

  5. Crafty Math Chick says:

    Love the lemon lime background on the penguin with the touch of sparkle – that’s really pretty! Your light blue penguin card is pretty too, but the first one is a really unexpected color combination and I really like it! I have to wait until next month’s paycheck before I can buy this cute set – hope they don’t sell out (or that it is restocked really fast!) Thank you for the beautiful holiday inspiration!

    I love how you made the snow ‘hills’ in the second card with the ocean wave dies! It’s good to remember that supplies can be used in multiple ways! Great cards!

  7. Anne Lee says:

    I can never get enough of these cute penguins, thank you ME for introducing them and thank you Alix for bringing them to life! I love their pink cheeks

  8. Cathy Lillie says:

    Wow, these are adorable! I love how you went with pastels in your cards. It works so well with those cute penguins. Fantastic coloring and ink blending!

  9. Marjorie DUMONTIER says:
