Elephants are trending right now, have you noticed? Right along with that trend comes this SUPER FUN new set called Party Pachyderms. I LOVE that this is a solid stamp set!! I think you'll fall in love with it if you haven't already! :) AND...it is perfect for use in both kid & adult cards!!
I started by creating the rectangle background. I put one of the dies from the MUST HAVE Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles dies at an angle and cut (on Doodlebug Hello Sunshine patterned paper). Then, I also used the same size for the striped background paper from the same pack. I popped the solid pink cardstock up with dimensionals to create a window for my dancing elephant.
I stamped the elephant from the Party Pachyderms stamp set and then cut him out. I used the previously released Mini Party Dies to create the hat & to add the party balloon! Such a perfect sized die set for this new stamp set! The flag was die cut with the also previously released Sentiment Flag Die Original where I stamped a sentiment from the Party Pachyderms stamp set.
This card features two more new stamp sets and the Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles dies. To create the flower I embossed one of the circle clusters in white from the new We Connect stamp set. Then, I got out my cheap watercolor paints and started painting. I really like how it turned out! For the stems, I used the stem from the previously released Sketched Floral stamps and then used the leaves from the new (and awesome!!) Awesome Blossoms stamp set.
The sentiment is also from the Awesome Blossoms stamp set! Love!!
I have one last card to share today.
You are looking at a card now that uses my favorite Lil' Inker Designs flower stamp set ever called Awesome Blossoms!! I LOVE this set!! I love the flower shapes in this set!
I masked off the portion of the card where the flowers didn't stamp with post it note tape and then randomly started to stamp the flowers from the set. I die cut one of the flowers & leaf shapes with the Awesome Blossoms Die Set from watercolor paper to give it a textured look. Then I stamped the flower, which can be stamped in one step or three depending on how you'd like it to look. I stamped the base, the highlights and the center in different colored inks. The sentiment is also from the Awesome Blossoms stamp set. Seriously love this set! :)
