{Mama Elephant} November Stampede


Welcome to the Mama Elephant November Design Team blog hop! Our November release is now live and available for purchase in the store.

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.


Today, I'm featuring Fair Feathers and coordinating Fair Feathers Creative Cuts. I also used the Femme Frames to create a for the sentiment. I cut the scallop rectangle from crepe paper and layered it for a soft and pretty look. After die cutting and stamping the outline of the feather, I rock 'n' rolled the solid feather stamp in a glue pad and then sprinkled obsidian, graphite and white gold glitter from the bottom up for a glittery gradient effect.


You can click on the photos to see the amazing sparkle up close. I used a corner chomper to cut off the tip of the feather before adhering it to the card so it looks like it's going inside the ink bottle. I glued the bottom of the feather directly against the card and popped off the top end with foam tape to make it look more realistic.

You have up to 3 chances to qualify to win one of the 4 new stamp sets! Just leave a separate comment for each!
