Hello everyone! I'm a little late getting everything posted today as we were part of the big ice storm that hit the midwest and we were without internet for a couple days. We luckily had power for most of that time but there's been widespread power outage here and the electric company crews have been working around the clock to restore power! In fact, my kids have not had school all week and won't have school tomorrow either as they work to restore power to all the schools in our district. (This mama is ready for them to go back to school! You would have thought the world had ended when they realized we didn't have any internet or cable! ha!)
Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the amazing new Otterly Adorable Stamp Set and coordinating dies! This is the cutest stamp set and can be used for so many different cards! I paired the otters with the Park Avenue Frame and thought bubble die for this framed up scene card.
I stamped the otters and accessories from the Otterly Adorable Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock and colored them in with Copic Markers. I die cut the images with the coordinating dies and added detail to the eyes and noses with the Sakura black glaze pen and added Glossy Accents to the hearts and the heart on the envelope.
I die cut a Bristol smooth background panel with two of the borders from the Otterly Adorable Die Collection and die cut a frame from Bristol Cardstock using a Park Avenue Die. I applied color to the background and frame with Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbled Glass, and Salty Ocean Distress Inks. I spritzed the background with water from a Distress Sprayer and then blotted it dry with a paper towel. I added sun rays to the sky with the image from the Sunny Skies Stamp Set.
I adhered the background a white top fold card base, adding the otters in the die cut waves as shown.
I adhered the thought bubble to the card base and adhered the frame with foam adhesive. I adhered the colored and die cut hearts and some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to complete the design.
