Art Impressions Freebie-12 Days of Christmas

Welcome back! I’m excited to share today’s card. This set came in handy last week with my surgery! First, let me share with you what I am rambling about: today’s freebie from’s 12 Days of Christmas. It’s this adorable Art Impression’s Elephant Stamp, made excessively for Let’s not forget the other great sales going on right now.

12 Days - Day 6

And now…this super cute elephant!!!

I wanted to make a card for my friend Jenni, who graciously agreed to drive me to the hospital for my surgery. I came across this stamp, and thought it was perfect. It was a nice fall feel to it, so giving it the week of thanksgiving was perfect.

I started out by masking a square on my card using the Taylored Expressions masking stencil. I figured out where I wanted the image, and stamped it with Hero Arts Intense Black ink, along with a mask. I fussy cut the mask (even all the little leaves) and masked off the image to ink the background. I left the stencil in place all this time, so I could use it to ink the background.

I wanted to share a quick trick using the masking stencil. Leaving the outline rectangle in place, I grabbed the filler piece, and used it to mask off the ground for my scene. Once I inked the ground, I flipped the filler mask and did the same with the sky.

Once I had my background inked, I removed the mask and colored the images with Copic markers.

To finish off the card, I added a sentiment strip from Taylored Expressions sentiment strips. Using the sentiment banner from Concord & 9ths Monogram, I die cut a blue glitter cardstock layer. After layering the two strips, I added the sentiment to the card with foam tape. The card base is Gina K Soft Stone. Its difficult to see in the cloudy pictures, but I added Glossy Accents to the bike.

This card was a labor of love, and well deserved, I just wish I could have gotten better pictures. I hope you take advantage of this freebie, it’s so cute!

Thanks for stopping by!
