{Mama Elephant} Stamp Highlight: Cozy Christmas + Video!


It's Day 2 of the Mama Elephant Stamp Highlights for the October Release and today the design team is featuring Cozy Christmas. Santa and Mrs. Claus are so cute that I could see myself making all my Christmas cards with them. With the tree and all of the accessories, the scene possibilities are endless with this awesome stamp set. I made a shaped card using the scallop rectangle from the Femme Frames dies and I have a video to show you how I did it.



When I received Cozy Christmas, my eyes went straight to those extra mittens and I thought to myself how clever it was for Kryssi to include them. They're so handy for layering all those little accessories into the hands of Santa and Mrs. Claus without having to stamp an entire character and waste cardstock and ink!


Please be sure to visit the rest of the design team to see what they came up with using Cozy Christmas.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!
