Mama Elephant Stampede!



Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop!

The newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!
www.mamaelephant.com


I created a card with three of the new stamp sets. It features Freestyle Florals plus stamps from Zenith Borders and Bear Hugs. 


I started by die cutting a white mat from Femme Frames. Next, I stamped the flowers and leaves from Freestyle Florals in several colors of pigment ink. I sponged a few coordinating colors around the edges. Next I die cut a tag from Tags a Lot. I didn't need the entire tag so I used the Femme Frames die again to trim off the top which added the stitched border. 


I stamped the sentiment from Bear Hugs and the branches from Femme Frames. The card was finished with my favorite background from Zenith Borders.

This is a knock out release. I know you'll love it!
