Mama Elephant – Twinkle Towns

Hi Friends!

Mama Elephant is doing an Instagram hop for their next release and has a “contest” going.  People are featuring holiday cards to participate.  I don’t have a lot of holiday-related Mama Elephant sets, but I pulled out what I do have and started with Twinkle Towns first.

ME Twinkle Towns 1

I started by ink-blending the background with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink.  Then I stamped the pine branch in a light brown and green so that I could go over it with a darker shade in colored pencil to give it added depth.  I die cut this panel to give it a scalloped frame using the All Prettied Up die.

When I was done coloring, I stamped the ornament and colored the town using polychromos colored pencils as well.  The image is small so the coloring is very basic.  Once done coloring, I die-cut the ornament using a coordinating die.

I then sprayed some water splatters on the card layer to remove color and went over the entire panel with the Marvy Snow Marker to add embossed snow all over the panel.  To finish the card, I die cut the words “Oh Joy” from the same Twinkle Towns coordinating dies in silver sparkle cardstock and added it to the bottom of the card with a few dew drops.

I hope you enjoyed this card! I’m going to try really hard to make a few cards using the Mama Elephant holiday sets that I have – I really want to guest design for them! <3.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
