Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the brand new Carnival Toppers Stamp Set and coordinating Carnival Toppers Creative Cuts dies. This set compliments the Carnival Cupcakes Stamp Set perfectly. You can never have too many cupcakes, right?
In addition to the Carnival Toppers Stamp Set and Carnival Toppers Creative Cuts dies, I used the Carnival Cupcakes Stamp Set, Carnival Cupcakes Creative Cuts Dies, Sentimental Borders Stamp Set, Polaroid Fun Creative Cuts dies, Index Card Creative Cuts dies and Confetti Creative Cuts dies. Whew! That's a lot of Mama Elephant goodness...
To create my card, I first die cut the stitched rectangle from SSS Sea Glass Cardstock using the Index Card Creative Cuts die. I stamped one of the borders from Sentimental Borders Stamp Set with SSS Sea Glass Ink and repeated the design to cover the entire rectangle. I die cut the scalloped rectangle from vellum and adhered it over the stamped text backgrond.
I die cut the polaroid frames from both white cardstock and SSS Slate Cardstock using the brand new Polaroid Fun Creative Cuts dies and layered them, slightly offsetting the white frame on top of the slate gray one to create a "shadowed" effect.
I also cut vellum and SSS Sea Glass Cardstock using the Polaroid Fun Creative Cuts die, keeping the "inside" piece and setting the frame aside for other projects. I stamped the cardstock with the Sentimental Borders Stamp Set using SSS Sea Glass Ink like I did for the background. I layered the vellum pieces over the stamped text to slightly mute the vibrancy and then I stamped a greeting from the Carnival Toppers Stamp Set on one using Versamark Ink. I heat embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder. I wrapped some white silk ribbon around the frames and adhered them to my card front as shown.
I stamped a cupcake and toppers using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on white cardstock and colored the images in with Copic Markers (the individual markers I used are listed and linked below in supplies). I added detailing to the cupcake with my favorite white pen and adhered the cupcake to my card with my favorite foam adhesive.
I finished the card with a scattering of confetti cut from glitter cardstock using the Confetti Creative Cuts dies.
