Mama Elephant – Reindeer Games

Happy Sunday, Friends!

This post is quite impromptu.  I didn’t expect Mama Elephant to have a guest design call!  I have assignments to post for the next three days before they choose so I decided I would make something right away and share it with you today.  Mama Elephant has amazing stamps and dies and I don’t spend enough time playing with the sets that I have.  I was excited to pull this cute Reindeer Games set to play with today.

I usually don’t have card ideas before starting, but this layout came to me at 2 am last night.  I just envisioned these reindeer dancing on clouds – and I wanted a lot of texture and bling on these clouds so I used WOW White Puff Twinkle embossing powder.  I covered an entire card panel in it and used the Mama Elephant Landscape Trio die to cut 3 sections of cloud from this glittery embossed cardstock that I made.

To create the background, I used Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxide inks and ink blended light from the bottom and darker around the top.  I added white ink splatter using some calligraphy ink that I have (which has gone neglected also because I do too much!)

I stamped and colored all the images using Copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating Reindeer Games dies.  Then the best part began as I set all the pieces on the card panel and began arranging it all before I adhered it all down!

Copic colors used:  E41, E50, E53, E31, E34, R24, R29, B000, B32, B24, Y02, Y17, G14, G03, G05.

The very top cloud layer is on foam tape for added dimension and all the other layers complement it with the accessories tucked into different places of this scene.  I LOVE it so much!  I stamped the sentiment from a well-loved Mama Elephant set called Jingle Greetings.  To finish off the card, I fussy cut the little holiday bobbles and adhered them in place and hand-drew lines with a black pen to give them the look of hanging off the sentiment.   I also added some Wink of Stella clear shimmer to the bobbles, star, and Rudolf’s nose.  I really hope you enjoyed this card – wish me luck on this guest design opportunity!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
