Stampede | September 2020

Welcome back to Day 3 of the Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop! We are celebrating 8 years with a fantastic new holiday release along with our amazing friends!

Join us with some free goodies and our annual sale! 

You can shop the newest release which is LIVE in our store now!

I simply couldn’t decide what set to start with in this amazing release – so I went for little bit of different sets. 

I used the small images from the Oh Penguin Tree and Let It Snow to create my own patterned paper which I colored in using my copics. 
Then I cut my “patterned paper” into strips using different widths from the Quick Stripes dies.

Instead of large cards, I decided to make these 3×3 inches, so I cut my papers to 6×3 inches and folded them in half to make my card bases. Then I added the strips of paper to the bottom half of each card. 

To decorate the card I cut the leaves from Foliage Frame in gold and woodgrain vellum. For the flower I used the same woodgrain vellum, gold, white cardstock and a bit of green for the leaves. Finally I stamped sentiments from Holiday Messages on some white Quick Stripes diecuts and cut them to length before adding them with some foam squares.
