{Mama Elephant} Stamp Highlight: Carnival Toppers

 

It's Day 2 of the Mama Elephant Stamp Highlights for the August Release and today the design team is featuring Carnival Toppers. This card makes me laugh and I have no explanation on how I came up with it except that I love to shop. I think that the little girl screaming for you to buy cupcakes is the same voice that I hear in my head. LOL!


The first thing I did was die cut the little frames and speech bubbles from Polaroid Fun. Then I die cut, stamped and coloured the little girl from In My Heart (+ Creative Cuts). I positioned and adhered the girls into the frames. Then I masked off 'buy' from the big sentiment and stamped it three times on the speech bubbles.


I determined the placement of the frames on the 3.25" x 6.5" card - one of my favourite sizes to make - and stamped the main sentiment, while masking off the appropriate sections. Before adhering all the frames in place with foam tape, I used Versamark ink to stamp three cupcakes from Carnival Cupcakes to emphasize the buying. LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
