Mama Elephant June Highlight: Water Blooms

Hey everyone!  Have you been enjoying all the Mama Elephant goodies this week?  Well today, we are highlighting the beautiful floral set Water Blooms!  I love that this set comes with individual builder stamps as well as 2 larger bundles for when you need quickie cards:)  


For my card, I went the build your own route!  I used my alpha stamps from the set Flashy Letters to create a completely custom card.  


I stamped the letters first and then just filled in with various colored blooms and leaves.  For some of the flowers I stamped off first to get a softer look.  Two of the blooms are fussy cut and popped up and I just love how it looks!  


Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Click over to the rest of the team to see more Water Blooms inspiration.

Mahalo and Aloha,

  4. Totally love it, JJ. I love your use of the letters blended with the flowers. Colors are so soft yet the green gives it some brightness at the same time.
