I Often Think of You

Hello! I am so glad you’ve stopped by today, as I am teaming up with my sweet and dear friend Ellen Haxelmans, to create a fun, joint card share!

 

I Think of You Often_2

 

Ellen and I are always inspired by each other’s creations and we thought it would be fun to each create a card using an old card design that we created a few years ago. For my card, I gathered inspiration from the thank you card on the left of this photo…

 

Thank You

 

and came up with this…

 

I Think of You Often_1

 

For my card, I used two brand new Mama Elephant stamp sets; Chance of Rain and Charmed.  Once colored, I fussy cut all the images out, and covered the raincoats and boots with Glossy Accents and the hearts with Wink of Stella glitter. The banner and sentiment are from the Charmed stamp set, and stamped in Staz On ink onto some vellum.

I die cut a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle from white cardstock and inked some Mermaid Lagoon distress ink along the bottom portion to create a faded sky. I then applied some Ranger Texture Paste, mixed with Peacock Feathers distress ink, over the Simon Says Stamp Raindrops stencil onto the sky background. Once dry I applied Wink of Stella glitter over all the raindrops.

I love the sweet images in the new Mama Elephant stamp sets, and I hope you’ve enjoyed my take on Ellen’s card! Be sure to hop on over to her blog and take a look at the card she created using one of my old cards that I created back in 2012!
