Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: So Breezy



Hey y'all!  You've seen the peeks all week from Kryssi and stampeded with the whole team, now it's time for Mama Elephant's February release highlights!  BTW, the February release is live now and available for purchase in the store!  The first set to highlight is So Breezy!

This set is really going to get you in the mood for Spring!  Or at least in the mood for sunshine:)  I got started on this card by creating the background using a reusable plastic cloud mask and some Distress Ink.  For the sun, I used one of my small circle dies as a mask.  The sentiment is a mix of 2 stamps (one off which is a design handwritten by Kryssi herself:)  I was going for cheery and these stamps definitely delivered!


I fussy cut the butterfly kit and glued him on with a little foam tape.  As a final detail, I did a little ombre coloring on the open letters of the sentiment.  That small little detail really perks it up!  

THANK YOU for stopping in today!  Definitely go check out what the other Mama Elephant team members are doing with this great set!

Mahalo and Aloha,

  19. Cheery hardly even covers how cheery it is!! I love how you've highlighted the 'sunshine' word again - and somehow it seems even brighter right against the white!
