Mama Elephant – August Stampede

August 15, 2015

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


I’m back with the August release with Mama Elephant today and I’m using the Classic stripes cover creative cuts along with Birthday Wishes stamp set. I die cut a mask with the cover plate and layered it over my cardbase to ink up a background.

Mama Elephant - August Stampede

I used the candle stamps from the stamp set and stamped it on the inside of the card along with another sentiment from the same set.
