Hello! Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the amazing new Page Huggers Stamp Set and coordinating Page Huggers dies. I paired the mouse, pencils, stack of books, glasses, and apple images from the Page Huggers Stamp Set with a definition from the new Words Defined Stamp Set, stitched borders from the Fine Trimmings dies, and the Thanks Script die cut greeting.
I stamped the mouse, pencils, stack of books, glasses, and apple images from the Page Huggers Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. I colored in the images with Copic Markers and then die cut the images with the coordinating Page Huggers dies. I added detail to the eyes with a black glaze pen and then added Glossy Accents to the glasses to make them shine.
I trimmed a strip from smooth white cardstock and added stitching detail to the long sides of the strip with a Fine Trimmings die. A greeting from the new Words Defined Stamp Set was inked in black on the right side of the card.
A box from the All Prettied up Die Collection was die cut from smooth white cardstock and inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I assembled the box, tucked the mouse inside and assembled the scene to the left of the stamped "teacher" greeting as shown.
I applied Stick It to both sides of a piece of Fun Foam, removed the backing paper from one side and adhered smooth white cardstock. Then I die cut the Thanks Script die from the cardstock/fun foam combo. I inked up the dimensional die cut greeting with a bit of Candied Apple Distress Ink and adhered it above the teacher definition as shown.
I randomly stamped the pencil and apple from the Page Huggers Stamp Set on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" rectangle of smooth white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. I colored in the images with Copic Markers, layered the greeting/image strip over the background with foam adhesive and finished the design by adhering the panel to a side fold card base.
