Mama Elephant February Stampede


Hello, hello, hello! Welcome to the Mama Elephant Design Team Stampede!  I know you've been checking out the sneaks all week, are you excited?  The full release was revealed yesterday and they are already live on the Mama Elephant site}.  Today, the DT is just sharing some fun projects from each set:)   My stampede projects uses the fun new alpha set, Sketchy Letters!

I love the handwritten feel of these letters. They are very forgiving when you line them up:)     For my card, I really wanted to highlight the letters, so I went one layer, super CAS.  I painted watercolor blobs (lol) across the card base as a colorful background.  I love how the letters look against the soft colors!


Here's a closer look at the detail of the stamps!  Love it! 

That's it from me!  I told you it was super CAS;)  Now before you finish stampeding, don't forget the giveaway!

GIVEAWAY ALERT! To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away one of each of the new stamps released! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. Winners will be announced on the blog on the last Stamp Highlights Day. You have up to 3 chances to qualify to win! Just leave a separate comment for each!

  14. You had me at sketchy letters but when you said they are also easy to line up, they have to be mine for sure! I just love using alpha sets to personalize cards and make up my own sentiment ... Thanks for the gorgeous inspiration - those watercoloured circles are the perfect backdrop to your card's message.
