I am absolutely loving the new Mama Elephant Balloon Letters and Balloon Etcetera stamp sets! I created an almost one-layer birthday card for my nephew using the stamps from this kit, a panda from Pandamonium and addtional stamped greeting from Happy Everything. Simple Copic Coloring for the background brings the entire scene together!
I die cut a piece of smooth white cardstock using the large stitched rectangle from the Peek A Frames Creative Cuts die collection. Even though this is basically a one-layer card, I didn't want any of the Copic markers I used for the background to bleed through to the inside of my card. By stamping and coloring on this die cut rectangle I can adhere this to the card and not worry about it!
I stamped one of the panda's from Pandamonium using MFT Hybrid Black Licorice Ink. I stamped the balloons with Fresh Mint Pigment Ink, Buttercup Pigment Ink, Lemongrass Pigment Ink and Orangeade Pigment Ink using the Balloon Letters and Balloon Etcetera stamp sets.
I created a cloud background and green landscape using Copic markers (the individual marker colors are listed and linked below in supplies). Once the background was dry I drew in balloon strings with a fine tip black pen.
To see how I put this card together from start to finish, watch out the video below or view on youtube HERE:
