Mama Elephant July Stampede



Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Mama Elephant July Stampede!  You've already seen the peeks of the July release over at the Mama Elephant blog, and the new release is now live and available for purchase in the store!  For the stampede, I'm working with the new set Stitches!


I was a seamstress (sewer? sewster? lol) long before I started up with cards, so this set really speaks to me.  Even now that I'm addicted to paper, I still break out the sewing machine every now and then:)  More often than not, I'm sewing up a little gift.  So today I thought I'd show some tags I made up to go with my little sewn goodies!  
   
Sets Used: (Left) Stitches, No Peeking / (Middle) Stitches, Big Words / (Right) Stitches, No Peeking

For each tag, I used the tag stamp from the set No Peeking (remember that one from last Winter?).  This tag is my favorite of the three:)  I stamped the spool image onto woodgrain paper and fussy cut it.  Then I wrapped it with embroidery thread.  So cute!  


The other 2 tags are easy peasy one-layer tags.  Perfect for putting in the post with no worries of them getting smushed!  I love to pop these tags onto a package wrapped up in kraft paper:)  Thanks for letting me share!


To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away 3 gift certificates worth $20.00 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 on the last Stamp Highlight day.
