MFT December Release Countdown | Day 5

Hello and welcome to day 5 of the My Favorite Things December release countdown! This month's release includes some great animals and florals as well as some great new STAX designs.

For today's post I have two cards to share that feature the new Adorable Elephants stamp set and coordinating dies as well as the new Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle STAX die-namics. 

For my first card, I created a watercolor background using my Peerless watercolours and then set it aside to dry while I worked on the rest of my card. I stamped the elephant and balloon image onto Smooth White cardstock, coloured them in with Copic markers and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Before adhering them to the card, I cut a slit into the elephants hand area and tucked the balloon string through it so it would look like he's holding the balloon and then added him to the watercolour piece. I stamped a sentiment with the Label Sentiment stamp set, clear heat embossed over the black ink and then added it to the card after cutting the pieces out. 

For my second card I used another one of the elephant images from the same stamp set and also stamped one of the little butterfly images. I coloured them both in with Copic markers and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I created a circle sky area for the elephant by adding a circle mask to the white cardstock panel and then adding Summer Splash ink with an ink blending tool. Once I had the inking done, I diecut the panel using the new Stitched Scallop Rectangle STAX dies and then added it to a Grout Gray card base.

I added the elephant and the butterfly to the inked panel and then I stamped a sentiment directly underneath using black ink.
