Hello friends! Today I'm revisiting a favorite Mama Elephant stamp set from 2017, Party Animals. Not only are these adorable bunnies and chicks perfect for birthdays and other celebrations, but with some champagne/sparkling cider and toasting glasses, they are the perfect critters for a New Year's celebration!
To start I inked a Bristol Cardstock background with Blueprint Sketch and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks before spritzing with water from a Distress Sprayer and blotting dry with a paper towel. Two borders die cut from smooth white cardstock using the cloud Landscape Trio Die border add the perfect border along the bottom edge.
Simon Says Stamp Silver Glitter Cardstock was adhered to Fun Foam with Stick It Adhesive before being run through a die cutting machine with the Hooray Script Die. I carefully adhered the die cut greeting to my card being sure not to push it in place yet as I still need to add the critters.
The bunnies, chicks, bottle, glasses, and balloons from the Party Animals stamp set were stamped on smooth white cardstock with black Versafine Ink. The balloons were customized with numbers from the Hollow Letters Stamp Set. The images were colored in with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and blended with Gamsol and a stump pencil.
A greeting from the Just A Note Stamp Set was stamped on black cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder before being trimmed into a thin strip and adhered to the card as shown.
