Mama Elephant and Operation Write Home


I'm super excited to be joining Mama Elephant and OWH today for an awesome cause and to show off a super cute new stamp set! You should be joining me from Laura Bassen's blog but you can find a complete hop list at the bottom in case you are lost. :)


Mama Elephant is so excited to be partnering this summer with Operation Write Home - they are a nonprofit that sends beautiful handmade cards to our service members so that they can write home to their families. Isn’t that just the best? There’s no Hallmark store in the desert, so this is a pretty important gift we can give them as crafters!

Mama Elephant's “In My heart” set was inspired by the mission of OWH; Mama Elephant knows that many of those serving overseas have little kiddos at home that they write to. So Mama Elephant designed cute little kids and sentiments to express just how much those little folks are missed! The drawings are done in such a way that they can be adapted to different ethnicities too, making this a really flexible set. Mama Elephant will  be donating 20% of the proceeds of the stamp sets sold on our retail site from now until July 31st! How cool is that?


You can join in on the mission to serve the troops - be sure you visit the OWH website and read all the guidelines carefully….you’ll learn about why glitter is dangerous to send, so leave the stickles behind when making cards for heroes! Lots more information is available on their Welcome page - tons of questions are answered there! And they have a fun YouTube show each weekday with project info, tutorials, and more - check it out HERE.

So now that you know all the cool details....here is my card using this AMAZING set!


I paper pieced this sweet little girl and added my favorite sentiment from this set. Her hair needed a little bling so I added a gold sparkly enamel dot. :)

There is more inspiration so keep hopping! Next up is Heather Campbell!

Here is a complete blog hop list :)
