A Little Mama Elephant...

Happy Tuesday!! I hope you are having a great start to your week. I have to admit I am just wanting it to be over as we have vacation off from school. Even if I don't do anything, just being off from work is fabulous to me. Sleeping in, working out, time in the craft room or just time to do the cleaning I want to do-it is heaven.

Today I wanted to share a card I created using Mama Elephant's "Pandamonium" stamp set. I love these little guys!!! I chose to use the two "kissing" Pandas on the card below.

I used Paper Trey Ink's Royal Velvet card stock, polka dot paper and the ink for this card. I am not sure why I used purple, as it is one of my least favorite colors but it suited these little guys.

I created the background using a mask. I cut a die cut a circle into a piece of printer paper, layered it over the square and inked with yellow and a little blue to make the "new moon." I then put the circle over the yellow and inked the purple/blue sky.

I then inked a PTI die two different greens for the little "hill" the Pandas are standing on. I then adhered the bears to the scene. I framed them with a slide stamp and die from Paper Trey Ink. I used foam adhesive to adhere it so it "pops" a little. I also used foam on one of the hearts, as well as some glossy accents to give the hearts a little more oomph. I think it was the perfect touch!!

The XO's were stamped using the Casual Fridays "Love Notes" stamp set. I selectively inked the stamp so only one X and one O showed up. The sequins were a last minute addition to cover a mistake I made. Whoops!!

That is all for today. Thank you for stopping by!! Have a great day!!
