Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Today Was

Hey, hey, hey!  Time for the last of the Mama Elephant's March release highlights!  Don't forget, the new release is live now and available for purchase in the store!  Today's set to highlight is Today Was!


I love all the custom options that this set gives!  For my card, I went straight for a stamp that you *probably* would use more for scrapping than carding, and made myself a background.  I just love the look of Versamark on gray card stock!  


After I stamped the background I cut the yellow panel with my Silhouette.   I wanted the panel to stand out against the gray, so I picked the a bold yellow (still love that combo).  The cut panel measures 3" wide by 4" high (that's a good Project Life size, right?).  Click here to download this cut file.  {Please refer to the terms of use here before downloading}


I didn't want to totally cover the die cut panel with the sentiment, so I stamped it on vellum.  I finished everything off with a sprinkling of enamel dots in sky blue.  


THANK YOU for stopping in!  Stop by the other Mama Elephant team members and see what they did this great set!

It's been so much fun with you this week!  I do hope that you found something inspirational or picked up a little tip or technique this week:)  As always, I thank each and every one of you for visiting and for your super sweet comments!  

Mahalo and Aloha,

  2. Really neat JJ! I like the stamped background and cut front panel. Everthing is perfectly coordinated - down to the little staples holding your vellum sentiment.
