Mama Elephant: November Stampede!

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop! You should have arrived here from Geralyn's blog.

 The newest release is now live and available for purchase in their store HERE!

The release is another knock out hit! Each stamp set is amazing! Today I'm featuring Cross My Heart and I sneaked in a few of the other sets too! ;)


I started my card by die cutting the stitched index card. Then I cut out the window which is designed to open. (cool, right?) I wanted a frame for my window so I die cut the window again and trimmed the side before adhering it to my index base. Then I backed my window with some cloud patterned paper for my outside sky. Next I stamped and die cut the cats from Purrfect Pair. I have had SO much fun with these cats. After adhering to cats to the window sill, I stamped and fussy cut the heart balloon. I tied some black floss around the balloon and adhere it to the kitten's paw.




Finally, I stamped my sentiment. In true Mama Elephant style, these sentiments are trendy, versatile and perfectly designed. I LOVE them! My finished index card was adhered with mounting tape to a card base with the large Peek a Frames die.

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!
