Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the Labeled Messages Stamp Set. This wonderful greeting set is the perfect addition to almost any card. I paired the "You're Worth It" greeting with stamps and images from the new Space Bears Stamps and coordinating dies. Distress Inks and the Dotted Detail Frame and Border make the perfect accessories to this space scene card.
A greeting from the Space Bears Stamp Set plus some other images were stamped on the background rectangle using Versamark Ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I applied Chipped Sapphire, Peacock Feathers, and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks over the stamping and continued the inking onto the Dotted Detail frame. I applied Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso Distress Inks to the border and bottom edges of the frame. I spritzed the pieces with water from a Distress Sprayer, let it sit for about 30 seconds and then blotted the pieces dry with a paper towel.
I stamped the bear from the Space Bears Stamp Set on Bristol Smooth Cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored in the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers before die cutting with the coordinating dies. I added additional detail to the eyes with the Sakura Black Glaze Pen and then applied a layer of Glossy Accents to the "space helmet".
While the Glossy Accents dried, I stamped a greeting from the Labeled Messages Stamp Set on white cardstock using the Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. I trimmed around the greeting and adhered it to the background panel as shown.
I die cut another Dotted Detail frame from Fun Foam with Stick It on both sides. I adhered the panel to a top fold card base, adhered the Fun Foam frame around the scene and topped the foam with the Distress Inked frame.
I adhered the bear to the scene and finished the card with a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Iridescent Mini Star Confetti.
