Mama Elephant's 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop!

Welcome to Mama Elephant's 3rd Anniversary Stampede! The new release is live and available for purchase in the shop (www.mamaelephant.com) right now!

I'm so excited to share a few of the new stamp sets! First up, is Blogging Buddies. This set is so fun! 


I created a fun background by putting large blobs of watercolor on my paper. Then I took a straw and blew the colors across the paper (inspired by Amy Tan). I flicked more color on with my paint brush and then finished up by blending on a little more ink.

The computer screen was stamped, die cut and colored the Copics. It's popped up on the background with foam adhesive.

Next up is the adorable Reindeer Games. This set will get a TON of use this holiday season! All the reindeer are adorable! 



I created the little one layer scene with several stamps for the Reindeer Games set on a tag from Tags a Lot. I colored the images with Copics and added a few sequins.
