Ella and Friends with Nichol

Hi stamping friends! Nichol here today with a Designer Series card featuring the new Ella & Friends Stamp Set and coordinating Creative Cuts dies.

I combined the Ella & Friends Stamps with a favorite greeting from the Many Thanks Stamp Set as well as the the frames from the Basic Frames Creative Cuts dies and the Peek-a-boo Die from Pretty Pink Posh to make this fun card!

To create the card I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Mint Cardstock using the scalloped Basic Frames Creative Cuts Die. I die the patterned paper on the white side of the paper using the stitched rectangle Basic Frames Creative Cuts die. I die cut the Pretty Pink Posh Peek-a-boo frame from the rectangle and folded the edges down to reveal the pattern from the "backside". 

Using the Hero Arts Mint to Green Ombre Ink, I stamped the greeting below the opening using a greeting from the Many Thanks Stamp Set.

I stamped the mouse from the Ella & Friends Stamp Set above the greeting using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and stamped the elephant on a separate sheet of smooth white cardstock. I colored in both images with Copic Markers and die cut the elephant using the coordinating Ella & Friends Creative Cuts dies.

I adhered the two rectangles to a card base, adhered the elephant "punching through" the card and added a scattering of mint sequins to complete the design.
