Emojis are everywhere and the new Little Emotions stamp set from Mama Elephant are absolutely adorable! Interactive with a body image, lots and lots of faces and accessories, you can create emojis for almost any occasion. I couldn't pick just one or two emojis for my rainbow themed card so instead I made eleven standing along the top arc of the Rainbow High Dies.
To create the background, I die cut a rectangle from smooth white cardstock using the Peek A Frame A2 sized stitched rectangle die. I die cut another rectangle from watercolor cardstock and die cut a cloudy border from the watercolor cardstock using a Landscape Trio Die. I die cut the rainbow and heart from watercolor cardstock using the Rainbow High Die.
I trimmed the rainbow pieces apart with scissors and then applied Distress Inks to each layer of the rainbow with the Barn Door, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks. I applied a bit of color to the cloudy border with the Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I spritzed the pieces with water from a Distress Sprayer, let the water droplets sit for about 30 seconds and then blotted all the pieces dry with a paper towel.
I adhered the top arc of the rainbow to the stitched rectangle base and then started stamping the adorable emojis from the Little Emotions Stamp Set, working from the center out. I stamped the images with the Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored in the images with Copic Markers.
Once all the emojis were stamped and colored, I adhered the remaining rainbow pieces to the rectangle and then adhered the cloudy border along the bottom edge of the piece. I die cut the Smile Script Die from Black Cardstock and adhered it to the border as shown. I applied Barn Door Distress Ink to the die cut heart and applied it to the end of the loop on the letter "e" on the word "smile". I stamped the "You're The Best" greeting from the Labeled Messages Stamp Set with black ink on smooth white cardstock before trimming and adhering it below the word "smile".
I finished the card by adding detail to the eyes on the emojis with the Sakura Black Glaze Pen and adding Glossy Accents to the mouths and hearts. Once dry, I adhered the entire panel to a side fold card base.
