Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Soiree

ETA: Sorry guys!  This post was supposed to go up Monday, May 20th:)  
You got an extra early peek!  See you on Tuesday, May 21st with the next release post!  

Good morning folks!  I'm back today with the third day of the Mama Elephant May release highlights!  For today the whole DT is showcasing the set Soiree (It's available on the site NOW!)  


Can you just see the versatility in this set?  May is peak birthday season here in our household.  Everyone in our house has a birthday this month, but me:)  Add a couple graduations to the mix, and I NEED this set!  So today I'm sharing a quickie graduation card I made.  I started by stamping and paper piecing the banner on the card base.  I wanted to center the "2013" banners, so I die cut a circle frame to go over the card base.  I stamped the sentiment inside the circle and curved it just slightly to match the curve of the banner.  How easy was that?  


Thanks for stopping by and checking out the new stamps!  I hope that you get a chance to drop by the rest of the DT to see what fun they had with this fun set!

I'll see you on Tuesday when we showcase the last set of the May Mama Elephant release!

Mahalo and Aloha,

  3. I can see myself using this stamp set over and over again, for both feminine and masculine cards. I can even envision making a Christmas/New Year's card using the banners, but maybe that's because of the Merry colours you've been using on your fab card!
