Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Merry Greetings

Hey guys!  It's the fourth day of the Mama Elephant October release highlights and today we're working with the new set, Merry Greetings!  Like I've said before, you can always count on Mama Elephant for awesome sentiments!  This set is quickly becoming my go-to holiday sentiment set:)  


So I took out the tree from Cozy Christmas again, but this time I used my copics on it.  It's so easy to color which is good because I still haven't really gotten the hang of coloring:)  


For the sentiment, I used the stitched rectangle die to cut a custom-sized frame.  This is easily done with any large dies.  I die cut a rectangle first and then stamped the sentiment into one of the corners.  (The picture below is a different card, but you get the idea;)  After stamping, position the die over the sentiment and put it back through the die cut machine. 


I finished off the card with enamel dots and that was it!  (Don't those dots look like red hot candies?)  


Join us tomorrow for the last of the stamp highlights, and check in  today with all the gals to see what they've done with Merry Greetings:

Mahalo and Aloha,
