Mama Elephant: Woodland Gifts

Hi! Welcome to Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight weekend. This release is awesome and I'm so excited to share the new Woodland Gifts stamp set today. This stamp set was illustrated by the super talented Elena Roussakis. I know you'll adore these animals just like I do!

For my card I started with a base cut from Sew Fancy. I knew I was going to frame out a scene but wanted to extend the scene beyond the frame so I added the tall grass cut with the new Grass Trio. Next I worked on the scene, starting with stamping, coloring and die cutting the animals from Woodland Gifts. Next I die cut a white background with Starburst Cover. I made sure my "sandwich" wasn't too tight so the stars would stay in, then lightly colored them with Copics. Finally I stamped the log and mushroom in Moonlight and shaded them in to create a soft background.

I mentioned in my last post that I LOVE making my own die cut frames. Today I have another combo for you (be sure to check out my last post if you haven't already). This time I used the smaller frame from Sew Fancy with the journaling card from Peek a Frame. My final touch for this card was tucking in a cloud, cut from Stitched Sky, at the top of my frame.

What is your favorite stamp set from this release?
