Zodiac Farm Party! – Mama Elephant

Hi everyone! As I have multiple Zodiac stamp sets from Mama Elephant, I thought it would be fun to combine a few on a card. So the theme for this card is a zodiac farm party! There are even more zodiac stamp sets with farm animals, but I ‘only’ have the Pig, Sheep, and Rooster. So that is what I went with, and I think they look super fun together!

Before I’m diving into the cardmaking process, I want to mention we have a challenge running over at Cloud9 Crafts. The theme of this month is shaker cards. Head over to Instagram to see how you can participate and be eligible to win a prize!

First I stamped the critters from the Zodiac Pig, Sheep, and Rooster on Perfect Colouring paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After stamping, I colored the critters with my Copic markers:

  • Rooster: E41, Y18, Y13, Y11, Y000, R24, R22, R20, R30, E37, YR24
  • Pig: E13, YR02, YR01, YR000, E000, R20, R30
  • Sheep: W6, W4, W2, W0, E53, E51, E50, R20, R30

On the cheeks of the critters, I added small white dots with a gel pen.

For the background, I used Vanilla Malt cardstock from Lawn Fawn, on which I adhered the critters with thin and regular foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives. This gives them a nice amount of dimension, and they look cute when stacked on top of each other!

The sentiment I die cut twice from white cardstock with the Big Birthday Wishes creative cuts. On one of the white die cuts, I ink blended Distress Oxide Squeezed Lemonade and Dried Marigold. To complete the sentiment, I stamped ‘make a’ from Itty Bitty Birthday on a speech bubble from Let’s Chat. I also stamped two additional sentiments from Mini Everyday Messages. To make the sentiments match with the die cut, I stamped them with Dried Marigold.

To finish off the card, I added stars on the background. These I die cut with a small die in the Slim Scenescape Builder. Finally, I popped up the scene on a white cardbase with foam tape from Scotch.

I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
