Mama Elephant July Stamp Highlight: Stitches

Hey everyone!  Today is the first day of the Mama Elephant July release highlights and the whole DT is showcasing the set that you saw here yesterday called Stitches!   (Which is available on the site NOW by the way)  Yesterday, I used the Stitches stamps to create some fun tags.  Today, I went straight for that lovely over-sized stitched sentiment!!!


You know I love my vellum and I thought wouldn't that stitched sentiment look great on vellum!  So I embossed it in gold and I love how it turned out!  Behind the vellum I stamped a background of flowers and leaves with stamps from last month's Water Blooms.  I used pinks, peaches, and yellows for a soft look.  To attach the vellum overlay, I punched two holes at the top and tied the vellum on with burlap string.  So easy!


Thanks for stopping by!  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!
