{Mama Elephant} December Stampede


Welcome to the Mama Elephant December Design Team blog hop! Our December 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 the Love From Above stamp set with the Landscape Trio Creative Cuts. To create this sky scene, I chose patterned papers from Cosmo Cricket's Creative Girl paper pad for the backdrop. Then I die cut the two vellum cloud layers using the stitched wonky scallop border from Landscape Trio Creative Cuts. I stamped and coloured the cupid with Copic markers and fussy cut him. After determining his placement on the card, I stamped the sentiment with StazOn ink on the bottom vellum panel.


To adhere both vellum layers to the card base, I die cut glittery hearts using Embellished Tag Creative Cuts, applied glossy accents to adhere them to the top layer, then used micro glue dots behind those hearts to hold all the layers together. Finally, the cupid was popped on to the card with foam tape and I added Wink of Stella glitter to wing.

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