Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the new Lunar Animals Stamp Set and coordinating Lunar Animals Dies. I chose the farm animals from the stamp set and created a scene card with the All Prettied Up Creative Cuts Dies, Stitched Sky Dies, and Grassy Trio Dies for a fun birthday-themed greeting card. The assortment of animals from the Lunar Animals Stamp Set are so cute and fun and you can create so many different styles of cards with these cute critters! Check out my holiday treat bags showcasing the Lunar Animals Stamp Set monkey and mouse from yesterday's blog post HERE.
I started my card by die cutting all the elements for the background, the elements needed to create a scene for the stamped and colored images.
- I die cut the "sky" from Simon Says Stamp Sea Glass Cardstock using the large scalloped rectangle from the All Prettied Up Creative Cuts Die Collection.
- I die cut three layers of "grass" from Simon Says Stamp Green Leaf Cardstock and Simon Says Stamp Green Apple Cardstock using two of the three Grassy Trio Dies.
- I die cut the "cardboard box" from Simon Says Stamp Khaki Cardstock using a die from the All Prettied Up Creative Cuts Die Collection.
- I die cut clouds from vellum and smooth white cardstock using the smaller of the two clouds from the Stitched Sky Die Collection.
I stamped a greeting from the Lunar Extras Stamp Set along the top portion of the background using Simon Says Stamp Black Premium Dye Ink.
I stamped the farm animals and party hat from the Lunar Animals Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored in the images with Copic Markers before die cutting with the coordinating Lunar Animals Dies. I tucked the animals into the card design as shown and finished the animals by adding detail to the eyes and nostrils with the Sakura Black Glaze Pen and adding dots to some of the critters cheeks with the Sakura White Gel Pen.
