Mama Elephant So Many Snowmen Ink Blended Christmas Card

Mama Elephant’s Christmas release are my favourite! I bought the So Many Snowmen Stamp set a couple months ago in anticipation for the Christmas card making season. I really do love this series of stamps that Mama Elephant has been doing with crowds of a particular theme. Other than snowmen, there are also cats, dogs and bunnies. In the last couple coordinating dies they released they also include a scripty word die. For this particular set it’s, “Let It Snow”. With the bunny set, it’s “Happy Easter”. I think it’s a great addition and incentive to buy the dies!

I stamped and die cut out the snowmen using Simon Says Stamps Intense Black Ink and I coloured this large image using the following Copic Markers:
B000, T7, T5, T3, YR02, G07, G05, G02, E37, E33, E31, E47, E43, E41, R22, R20, B05, B02, B00, R29, R27, R17, V28, V22, V25, C3, C1, 0, Y06, Y11, Y28, Y21.

I did add some extra stripes to some of the scarves with a Copic Multi liner. This particular liner is great because it doesn’t bleed with the use of Copic Markers.

I brushed the glasses and the heart with my Clear Wink Of Stela and applied some Glossy Accents. I also added some Red Stickles on the holly berries and set it aside to dry.

I stamped out an extra snowfall background from a previous project so I pulled that out. The snowfall was stamped using MFT’s Snowfall Background and heat embossed it with Lawn Fawn White Embossing Powder. I ink blended it with Distress Oxide Inks Worn Lipstick, Tumbled Glass, and Broken China. I buffed the snow with a dry paper towel to get off any residual ink and to make the embossing look more white. I die cut card front using Mama Elephant’s Peek A Frame Die Set for the large stitched rectangle die.

I die cut, “Let It Snow” three times. Twice out of 110lb white card stock and once out of a gold glitter card stock and adhered them together. I adhered it onto my card front with my Zig Two Way Glue Pen. I adhered the snowmen onto my card front with 3M foam tape.

This card is also Day 19 of the 30 Day Colouring Challenge. You can find details about that here.

This card was also entered in Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge and Wednesday Challenge.
