{Mama Elephant} March Stampede


Welcome to the Mama Elephant March Design Team blog hop! Our March 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 Make a Wish stamp set. I used the 'Go On and Celebrate' sentiment, which I stamped on a tuba cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I love that this sentiment could be used for any congratulatory occasion, aside from birthdays.


I wanted to make it look like party noise was coming out of the tuba so I used the Confetti Creative Cuts for hot pink and silver stars and added sequins of various colours, shapes and sizes. I also stamped three stars in the bottom right hand corner.


The bright and happy Sunshine cardstock from Simon Says Stamp cuts beautifully in the Cameo. The patterned papers are from Amy Tangerine's Plus One 6x6 paper pad.


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