Hello, friends! I am guest blogging for Mama Elephant today, using two sets from their newest release. You can find more of my work at A Rare Ruby. This is a really exciting opportunity for me because Mama Elephant has been one of my favorite stamp companies since I started crafting two years ago. I also had the joy of attending their birthday parties in NYC! I have two cards to share with you today. :) The first stamp set I played with is Girlfriends. I created a framed look with Framed Tags - Madison Ave - Creative Cuts and the girls in the frame.
These ladies are perfect for cards for all your lady friends! I stamped and colored them all with Copic markers.
I used some of the sentiments to create a very light background and arranged the frame diagonally above it. Before gluing down the girls or the frame, I added a touch of yellow to the background.
For my second card, I used Brushed Florals. So many possibilities with this set! I wanted a watercolor look so I colored with Distress Inks, which react with water.
I stamped all the images with the lighter shades and then added watercolor with the light and dark shades for the reds and greens.
Since the colors are bold, I wanted to add a sheet of velllum over the base. I stamped the sentiment on the vellum and heat embossed with gold glitter embossing powder.
I added glue behind the sentiment so it wouldn't peek through.
I hope you enjoyed my cards today Thank you so much for visiting!
