Hey everyone! Welcome to the Mama Elephant February Stampede! The stampede is extra special for two reasons: our new DT gals are joining us for their first stampede and we have the uber talented and so sweet, Laura Bassen, joining us too! Just like last month, you've already seen the first looks at the February release on the Mama Elephant blog, and went live on the site at midnight last night!
For the stampede, I created two CAS cards with the Springy new set called So Breezy! The silhouette images in this set really lend themselves to clean and graphic cards:)
The sun spray background of this first card was created with just a scrap piece of paper and some Distress Ink. At the bottom, I stamped 2 sentiments together and added a wee bit of sparkle with a glitter pen. I love the fact that Kryssi and Angela design sentiments that you can fill in. So versatile!
I have one more simple card to share before I go:) The So Breezy set includes two silhouette stamps, one boy and one girl. I couldn't resist using the little boy stamp because it reminds me so much of my boys when they were little (getting a little misty-eyed just thinking about it). As you can see, I kept the stamps the focal point with only a bit of blending (clouds behind the little boy stamp) and a sprinkling of enamel dots. Just a sweet little birthday card for a little one:)
