Mama Elephant~Reindeer Games

Hey everyone!  My last card share for today is using my favorite stamp set from the Mama Elephant release, Reindeer Games.  I made a mask using the cloud die to use for a fluffy snow background.  Then I made a stencil out of masking material to create the cityscape in the background.  Then I masked everything off and made a winter night sky background with distress inks.  I colored the reindeer with Copics and then added some Wink of Stella and Liquid Glass on their cute little noses.  I masked off the sled, to extend it.  I wanted to create a sled with the reindeer dancing on it.  This was such a fun card to make...until I went to use my planned sentiment "It's Time to Jingle" stamp, from the stamp set Jingle Greetings...and I could not find it anywhere!  I set it aside until I was finished blending the distress inks.  Lol, after almost crying over a lost stamp, and offering my kiddos a hefty reward if they found it...I decided to just use an alphabet set to spell out "jingle".  Lesson learned.  ;(

Supplies used:

Stamps:  Mama Elephant~Reindeer Games, Christmas Spirit, and sadly Jolly and Merry, Sketchy Letters

Dies:  Mama Elephant~Sew Fancy, Landscape Trios, Cityscape

Paper:  Neenah Solar White 110#

Inks:  Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaFine, Delicata silver

  1. Love, Love, Love your Reindeer Games! Absolutely adorable. I would be crying too if I lost a stamp from a set, I am surprised the kids didn't find it for the reward! Did you try the bin? That's what has happened to me before, accidentally scooping things up with the rubbish, I hope it turns up. Big Hugs Cheryl

  2. Thanks, Cheryl!!! I looked everywhere, even in the trash a bit...yuck! I had to buy a new stamp set. Lesson learned! Big Hugs
