Mama Elephant March Stampede

[image]

Happy Friday people!  Welcome to the Mama Elephant February Stampede!  You've already seen the first looks at the March release on the Mama Elephant blog, and the new release is now live and available for purchase in the store here!




For the Stampede, I created two CAS cards with the new set above called Hello.  This set includes more handwritten sentiments by Kryssi which you know I can't resist!  For my first card, I used the Fabulous sentiment bubble paired with some colorful patterned paper.  Love how the stamped image is so crisp!  To finish, I added enamel dots in the same yummy colors found in the paper.  Fun, right?


The next card has another sentiment bubble but this time I paired it with one of the matching phrases that fits perfectly in the bubble:)  For the image, I used a circle die as a template to create the "Earth" using blended ink and then stamped the city scape from Believe in Magic over it.  A bit of washi tape across the top and some strategically placed dots and it was done!  Loving the graphic black and white!  


To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away 3 gift certificates worth $20 each to 3 lucky people!  Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede.  Winners will be announced on the blog Monday, March 18th.  The winners will have 48 hours to claim their prize.
