Hello crafty friends! Mama Elephant is celebrating their 11th anniversary and today we are featuring the Wonders of Winter Stamps and Creative Cuts. This background stamp set is especially lovely to help create the background of any scene. It features some snowy hillsides, a trio of birch tree trunks, and a little cabin on a hill.
I wanted to make a winter pond scene, and I thought the snowy hillside would be perfect to create a snowbank. I stamped the snowy hillside and colored it with COPIC markers. After die cutting, I rotated it upside down and layered it over an aqua inked panel that I would as my pond. I gently inked the new sky portion, then splattered with aqua ink. Next, I heat embossed the birch trees with white embossing powder on kraft cardstock and layered the die cut tree trunks over my inked pond.
I stamped some adorable critters from the Snow Friends stamp set and arranged them onto the scene after heat embossing a holiday sentiment from the same sentiment into the sky. I centered my scene onto some plaid paper and finished it off with a few glittery snowflakes and a pair of little fluffy clouds.
I think this set is very versatile and I hope that you head over to the Mama Elephant blog and Instagram feed too see the incredible inspiration from the entire Design Team.
Thank you for stopping by, Davina
