Elphie Birthday Stack

Hi there and welcome back!  I had fun playing with the cute Elphie Selfie stamp set from Lawn Fawn yesterday, making a card for the current challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch.  For the center strip of the sketch I decided to stack the cute images from the set.

Using my Misti, I lined up all the stamps on a panel of Strathmore Mixed Media paper where I wanted to place them to get the correct spacing, then inked up and stamped only the two elephants and bird on the panel, as the other images and sentiment were stamped on separate pieces of card stock so they could be popped up with foam tape.  After all the images were stamped, I used various Zig markers and a water brush for coloring.

The cake, mouse and balloon were die cut with the matching Lawn Cuts dies and adhered with foam tape, then the sentiment was added after heat embossing on black card stock and hand cutting the flag ends with my paper snips.  Hard to tell from the photos, but Clear Wink of Stella was added to the balloon and cake frosting for a bit of sparkle.

I just love these sweet images and the fun scenes that can be made with them!

Thanks so much for visiting!  I've added a link above to the CTS challenge, so be sure to use it and enjoy all the great inspiration!
