I’ve got to say, this baby card using the Wildly Happy Elephant Mom and Baby makes me squeal. I’m sure you’re always needing baby cards as those precious little ones arrive in the world and the Wildly Happy Stamp Set has 4 precious mom and baby choices. For today’s card, I randomly stamped the elephant pair all over my Smoky Slate background layer using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then stamped my main image on a scrap piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock as I knew I’d be coloring it in my my Stampin’ Blends Markers. If you are a professional with the Stampin’ Blends or just a beginner, this project is an easy one. I used the Smoky Slate Dark Stampin’ Blends to highlight the artists line on the elephants and followed up the Smoky Slight Light Stampin’ Blends to shade them in. By making light small circle over the already colored Smoky Slate Dark Ink you’ll get the blended affect your looking for. My final touch was adding just a bit of grass beneath their feet and I chose the Mint Macaron Light Stampin’ Blends to accomplish this.
I added the sentiments below the elephant pair and then cut them out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I used the next largest Stitched Rectangle Die as well for the background layer to cut my Basic Gray Cardstock and I love how it really makes the main element pop. My final touches were the Gray Granite Textured Weave Ribbon and a small piece of the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle. I just love how it all came together and hope you do as well.
