Mama Elephant Anniversary Stampede!!


http://mamaelephant.com/
Hello! Welcome to my stop on the Mama Elephant Anniversary Stampede! You should have arrived here from the awesomely talented and always hilarious, Julie Ebersole! How awesome is her card?!?

I am so excited to be a part of this awesome stampede to help Mama Elephant celebrate 2 years! I love love love their stamps and dies and use them often in my card designs! So fun to celebrate this awesome milestone with Kryssi and Angela!

For my card, I used the new Season's Greetings stamp set along with the Cityscape Creative Cuts to create a wintery night scene on my card.

I love the bold script sentiments and the snowflakes in this stamp set and decided to use them together. I first cut out a piece of white cardstock with the Femme Frames dies and then used to Distress inks to create the night sky. I used Chipped Sapphire, Broken China and Dusty Concord.

Once I had the sky done and the ink was dry, I heat embossed the "Let It Snow' sentiment with white embossing powder and a bunch of the snowflakes with silver pearl embossing powder from Ranger. I also added some water droplets to the paper to lift off some of the ink and give it the look of texture.

Once I had the sky all done, I added the city skyline in dark grey and black cardstock to make them look like silhouettes in the night sky. I added some clear wink of stella glitter to the tops of the buildings and matted the whole piece onto a piece of glitter paper before adhering it to the card base.

To complete the card, I added some sparkling clear sequins and silver stickles all around the embossed snowflakes to look like snow falling in the sky. ;)
