Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the new Rock and Paws Stamp Set and coordinating dies. These cute images will work for almost any kind of card but I especially love these for boy cards. I created a birthday themed boy card with the Mama Elephant stamps and dies.
I stamped the puppy drummer from the Rock and Paws stamp on smooth white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored in the image with Copic Markers. I stamped one of the thought bubble greetings as well and die cut both with the coordinating Rock and Paws Dies. I added detail to the drum set with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and detail to the eyes and nose of the dog with the Sakura Black Glaze Pen.
On the black cardstock card base, I die cut the Columbus Circle die from the front panel. This is going to create a great, decorative window to the inside of the card. I love the decorative stitching of this die.
I trimmed a piece of watercolor cardstock to 4" x 5.25" and applied Chipped Sapphire and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks to the panel with the mini ink blending tools. I spritzed water on the Sunny Skies sun rays stamp and stamped the water into the Distress Inked background. I held the stamp in place, letting the water sink into the cardstock and wick away the ink. I blotted the paper dry with a paper towel and repeated the stamping on either side of the first image. This is going to give a great "spotlight" type of look to my little rock 'n roll drummer!
I adhered the watercolored panel to the inside of the card and then adhered the drummer. I adhered the thought bubble to the outside edge of the card.
I die cut a banner from vellum using the Basic Die Collection die and stamped greetings from the Say What Stamp Set on the banner using Versamark Ink and heat embossing with platinum embossing powder. I adhered the banner to the front of the card and finished with a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Mini Silver Star Confetti.
