Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight ~ Midnight Letters

Hi everyone!  Ready for the next Mama Elephant set?  Today we're debuting the first Mama Elephant alpha set, Midnight Letters!   {All the new sets will be available for purchase on November 15th}  I've never seen an alpha set like this one before!  This set includes both a solid and an outline set that can be used separately or together.  Totally genius!  For this first card, I used just the solid stamps:)


Who doesn't love the look of white and kraft?  The perfect combination for a little "snow" stamping and a polar bear!  I couldn't resist that little bear again:)  He's colored in with colored pencils which are perfect for coloring on kraft because they are more opaque than markers.    


I added a little bit of falling snow from last month's Believe in Magic set behind my bear,  added a strip of glitter, and stamped a snowflake border.  Very snowy:)  For my next card I combined the outline and solid stamps!  


To take advantage of the flexibility of the alpha set, I stamped the sentiment vertically.  I love the look of the solid letter stamped slightly offset from the outline.  I cut the frame with my Silhouette and made 3 little windows for the adorable foxes.  I love those little peeking sweeties.


If you'd like to try this card yourself, pick up the Silhouette cut file here.  This file includes 2 versions: with and without the flag cutout.
That's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Tomorrow we have one more set to highlight!  Now don't forget to visit the rest of the Mama Elephant gals to see their wonderful Midnight Letters projects!


Don't forget to leave comments on the ME blog and the DT's blogs to enter your name into the drawing for a free set!  One winner will be randomly chosen from all the blogs:)  

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  21. Both of these are adorable, JJ, but I'm particularly smitten with the polar bear peeking out of the window on the first one. The white on kraft and glitter strip are perfection!

  22. The whole peeking concept is so cute! Love the offset letter stamp, great effect. And the colors that you chose on both cards, but especially the foxy one, are great!

    One more thing ... looks like you may have used two corner rounders. A tighter one for the panel and a wider one for the base. What a great detail!!
