Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Sightseeing

Hey guys!  We are chugging along with the Mama Elephant highlights this week!  Remember the new release is out now:)  Today we're highlighting the new stamp set, Sightseeing!  I'm a fan of anything England, so I'm seriously loving this set!  These stamps were screaming to be made into a shaker card...


The first step was to stamp the large bridge onto acetate.  I used Stazon ink (a must for acetate) and look how crisp it came out!  Inside the shaker on the card base, I stamped the flags (added the stripes with markers) and sentiment, then added a die cut bus and wheels.   I added a bit of blended ink at the bottom of the card base for the water.  Here's a closer look at the card...


To create the shaker frame, I used the negative cut of my Femme Frames Stitched Frame die.  It makes a perfect frame from an A2-sized panel.  I love how the acetate gives you that 3D look!  

Thanks for stopping in today!  Come back tomorrow for another stamp highlight and don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has done with this fun set!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  1. What a fun shaker card!! How in the world do you keep your hexagonal glitter from sticking to your acetate?? I tried dryer sheets and washing the acetate with soap/warm water and it still sticks!!

  9. Hahaha ... I'm laughing because I would have never thought "shaker card" by looking at those stamps!! I'm so glad YOU did though! The bridge on the acetate is inspired.
