Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the new Cub Cuddles Stamp Set and coordinating dies. I paired the adorable bears and greeting with the great new Hillside Cover Die. For the soft, dreamy look I colored in the background with four shades of Distress Inks and did a little no-line watercoloring to the bears and little birdie.
I die cut watercolor cardstock using the new Hillside Cover Die and applied Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar, and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks to the panel, blending well after each color. I spritzed the panel with water from a Distress Sprayer, let the water sit for about 30 seconds, and then blotted the panel dry.
I stamped a bear image and birdie image from the Cub Cuddles Stamp Set on watercolor cardstock using Antique Linen Distress Ink. I watercolored the bear with Gathered Twigs and Scattered Straw Distress Markers and a paintbrush. The birdie was watercolored with Cracked Pistachio, Squeezed Lemonade, and Carved Pumpkin inks. Once the ink completely dried I die cut the images with the Cub Cuddles Dies.
I adhered the bears and birdie to the Hillside Cover Die background and then adhered the panel to a side fold card base. I stamped the grass image from the Cub Cuddles Stamp Set on either side of the bear using Twisted Citron Ink.
