{Mama Elephant} February Stampede


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

Today, I'm featuring the Origami stamp set, along with the Confetti Creative Cuts. As you may have already read, Kryssi has said the sweetest things about my idea for the Origami set, here and here! The spark was ignited by a Mobilia catalogue that came in the mail late last fall. I told Kryssi that she had to design an origami set so she ran with it and did a phenomenal job with the design. That's how this chic and trendy set was born. You are going to love it as much as we do!!

On Neenah Solar Linen cardstock, I stamped the sentiment (a smaller version of Sketchy Letters) in the centre of the card and coloured it with a Wink of Stella marker to give it sparkle. Then I stamped four of the Origami animals around the sentiment and coloured them with Copic markers in neutral colours. To finish, I embellished the card with five glittery blue hearts die cut from Confetti Creative Cuts.

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