If you are looking for a beautiful and sweet stamp set then I think Mama Elephant’s Wish Upon a Star stamp set is one of the best/sweetest out there. I love the adorable bunny images and the sentiments with their beautiful mix of fonts – really pretty!
For today’s project, I decided to make two cards using two of the images in the stamp set. Since both cards are made the same way I’ll explain the details once since it would be boring to read the same thing twice. 😉
I stamped two of the darling images on Bristol Smooth cardstock using Lawn Fawn’s Narwhal ink and heat set them with Hero Arts’ Ultra Fine Clear Embossing Powder. Next, I used a combination of Zig and Arteza makers to watercolor the images. To add a bit of sparkle I used a light wash of Gansai Tambi’s Starry Colors White Gold watercolor over the moon and cloud. This is also the same paint used to create the splatters on the sky backgrounds (more on that below).
I have to be honest, I created this background over a year ago so I don’t remember the entire process or everything I used. I do know that I feel so in love with that I saved it until I had the perfect card (or in this case cards) to use it on. I know I used Bristol Smooth cardstock and a combination of Gansai Tambi’s Starry Colors and Gansai Tami’s Pearl Colors watercolors paints to create the background. For these cards, I cut the large sky background panel down into two smaller panels using one of the dies from Mama Elephant’s Favor Bag Creative Cuts.
Both cards feature sentiments from Mama Elephant’s Wish Upon a Star stamp set. I stamped them onto Lawn Fawn’s Fog cardstock using Lawn Fawn’s Narwhal ink and heat set them with Hero Arts’ Ultra Fine Clear Embossing Powder. To make them pop and tie in with the card base I also added a thin strip of Tonic Studios’ Frosted Silver Mirror Card to the bottom edge, but truth be told, next time I think I might skip this step.
The card bases are created out of Lawn Fawn’s Fog cardstock. I then cut a piece of Tonic Studios’ Luna Silver Pearlescent Card and Tonic Studios’ Frosted Silver Mirror Card down to cover the top half of my card. Even though you can’t see the point of the triangle this shape helps draw the eye to the cute bunny images. Next, I popped up my sky background using foam tape and then popped up my bunny images using more foam tape.
I’ll be sure to add a short video on my Instagram post (@colorandinkdesigns) so you can see all the beautiful sparkle and shine on these cards.
Thanks for stopping by!
