Happy weekend!! !! Simon Says Stamp's newest STAMPtember® collab was just released and it's the Mama Elephant collaboration!!! I have a strong feeling this one will sell out super fast as well - it's adorable and people have been asking when the Mama Elephant set was coming (fellow hoarders unite!!).
You can check out the Merry Mail set HERE <-----click!
Also there's a category on Simon Says Stamp for ALL the STAMPtember® exclusives HERE <-----click! Like previous STAMPtember® collaboration sets - these are exclusive to Simon Says Stamp and while supplies last. Once they're sold out and/or STAMPtember® is over they're gone!
I made a card for this set and also experimented with a new-to-me embossing powder while I was at it:
I stamped some of the images from the Merry Mail stamp set onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb card stock with Simon's Intense Black ink, coloured them in with Copics and added highlights with my Gelly Roll white gel pen.
The "merry" sentiment and the clouds were stamped with Simon's clear embossing ink then heat embossed with Hero Arts White Puff embossing powder. It's basically Liquid Applique in embossing powder form! Really fun to play with and I need to experiment more with it!
The die cuts are all from Mama Elephants On the Hills wafer die set - I used them to create my little scene that Santa is dropping all the gifts on to!
I finished off the inside of the card with a sentiment and more of the stitched clouds and a couple more of the stamped images and that was it!
To see how this card came together check out my video below:
