Hello friends! Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the brand new Zodiac Mouse Stamp Set and coordinating dies! This is one of two new Zodiac animals sets released this month. The other set is the Zodiac Ox. Be sure to tune in next week when I share this card as well as a couple of others featuring the Zodiac stamp sets used on tall and skinny cards. That post will feature the how to video tutorial for not only this card but two others! In the meantime, check out these cute mice hanging out in a super skinny and tall piece of "cheese".
*Video for this card as well as two others will be up next week!
Are you loving the look of tall and skinny cards? I really am enjoying trying this fun size and I'm excited to share this cute card with y'all today! This card measures 3 1/2" x 9" (created from a piece of smooth white cardstock) and fits in a basic business envelope.
To create the panel for the front of the card I used the Sew Fancy Circles to die cut circles from a 3 1/2" x 9" panel of smooth white cardstock. I temporarily adhered the circles to the back of the panel to ink the design with Lawn Fawn Butter and No 2 Pencil dye inks with a blending brush. FYI, you could totally ink the panel before die cutting. In fact that would probably be better but I kind of thought I would ink the circles in a different color. Why? I don't know. Obviously that would have been a mistake! LOL
On the card base I used the panel to help line up and adhere the circles. I stamped a greeting from the Zodiac Mouse Stamp Set using the Lawn Fawn No 2 Pencil Ink. I die cut the Tri Window "Hugs" greeting from the panel and then adhered the panel to the card base with foam adhesive.
Foam adhesive was also die cut using the Tri Window "Hugs" greeting twice and adhered those to the die cut openings in the panel. I adhered the inked die cut letters on top and finished with a layer of Glossy Accents. I did this step right off the bat to give the Glossy Accents a chance to completely dry.
The mice and other images from the Zodiac Mouse Stamp Set were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Inkon3 Fadeout No Line Coloring Ink and colored in with the following Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers:
Mice: Mid Gray, Brick Beige, Blender, Pink Haze
Cheese: Light Brown, Flesh Colour
Milk Carton: Light Blue, Blue Haze
Cookie: Mid Brown, Oatmeal, Blender
The images were die cut with the coordinating dies and adhered to the die cut circle opening as shown. Aren't they adorable?!!!!
A black gel pen was used to add detail to the eyes and Honey Bee Stamp Kiss Me Hearts were added to the design for a little pop of color and embellishment. Hearts are the answer to everything!
