Mama Elephant May Stampede


Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop!  Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store:

http://www.mamaelephant.com


Today, I'm sharing a project using the new Around We Go set!  This set has so many fun scene building stamps and coordinating dies too!  


Even though I'm not a big fan of heights, I have been known to white knuckle my way through a ferris wheel ride or two;)  That's the reason I couldn't resist pairing the ferris wheel of Around We Go with this sentiment from Wanderlust!   You know that feeling!

The coordinating dies for this set made it so easy to put together a fun 3D ferris wheel.  The bottom layer is the baskets stamped on vellum.  The next layer is the wheel itself dressed up with some Copic coloring and a bit of glitter pen.  The last layer is the die cut base.  I love the way they all come together!  Here' s a closer look at the all the die cuts together...


That's all for me today, but you know I can't let you go before I send out the...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!

  1. Beautiful card. I really love how you create your cloud backgrounds. They are always so gorgeous!! This card would be PERFECT for my friend who's also scared of heights!! We went on the ferris wheel at the Navy Pier in Chicago and all color drained from his face. Hilarious!! Thanks for sharing!!
