Mama Elephant November Stampede


Aloha all!  It's the 15th and that means, Mama Elephant Stampede time!  I'm stampeding with the new coordinating sets, Inline Letters Stamps and Creative Cuts Dies!  {You probably already know this, but these sets are already live on the Mama Elephant site}  The stamps and dies work together or separately (pssstt, the dies also work with previously released Flashy Letters).  


For my card, I went straight for the dies as I am wont to do;)   It just so happens that the size of the Inline Letters fits exactly on the Bold Banner!  I've been doing a bunch of dark based cards lately, so I wanted something a little lighter. So I went with the gold/mint/vellum combination.  The banner is cut in vellum and the letters are cut from a gold card stock embossed with a crosshatched pattern.  I used the Stitched Rectangle die (one of two dies included in the Femme Frames set) to create the tilted panel.  


And to ramp up the cheer factor, I stamped sequins and stars (from the new set Confetti) in gold.  I have to tell you that those sequin stamps are my new faves.  Those gold discs are just made with a standard hole punch on the same card stock I used for the letters.  I get crazy when there are too many shades of gold, so this is a good way to get a perfect match:)


That's it for me today!   Here's the list of stampeders, so you won't miss anything:) I know you're going to have fun seeing all the new sets! Those girls do some amazing stuff, don't they?

As with all the stampedes, there's an awesome giveaway going on!  Mama Elephant is giving away one of each of new stamps released!  (Winner will be chosen at random from collective blogs, so be sure you visit each Stampeder;)  The winner will be announced the last day of the stamp highlights.  You have 3 chances to win:
Thank you so much for stopping by!!  Stamp highlights start next Monday, so I'll catch you then!    

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  31. This is a great card. I love that it's a little off beat with stitches that aren't stitches and sequins that aren't sequins. That vellum banner is to die for. I'm going to have to make one of those.
