Hello friends! Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the brand new Lunar Sayings Stamp Set. I combined a sentiment phrase from the set with the Sakura Lanterns Creative Cuts dies for this quick and easy design. All the dies were die cut from smooth white cardstock and colored in with Copic Markers. I will be sending out these cards to several friends and family who have had a a difficult year as encouragement and hope for 2020!

For the background I inked a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panel of smooth white cardstock with Hero Hues Pool Party Reactive Ink, creating an ombre effect of dark to light with a single color of ink.
The Sakura Lanterns frame and lanterns were die cut from smooth white cardstock. The cherry blossoms and branch along the top edge were colored with E55, E57, YG21, YG17, R21, and R22 Copic Markers.
The lanterns were colored with R35, R37, R39, and C8. The accent lantern pieces were die cut from Polished Gold Cardstock and adhered to the lanterns as shown.
A greeting from the Lunar Sayings Stamp Set was stamped with Hero Arts Embossing & Watermark Ink along the bottom third of the background and heat embossed with Antique Gold Embossing Powder.
The frame was secured to the background with double sided adhesive strips. The lanterns were glued to appear to be "hanging" from the branch. The card was finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Bright Gold.
