Mama Elephant Anniversary Stampede + Video + Giveaway

Hello! Today I am part of the Mama Elephant Anniversary Stampede… with two (actually three!) cards, a video and giveaways!

I am very excited for my friends at Mama Elephant. In one short year they have brought us many fabulous stamp sets… and now ink and dies!

So you see those pine pieces that make up that wreath? Well those are actually from the Party Kit stamp set from Mama Elephant. (Available for free with a minimum purchase.) Totally not holiday related at all… but that is what makes it fun! I used what are supposed to be tassle-like-things (no idea what you call them) for balloons or party banners… and instead created a wreath.

I used the new Mama Elephant inksMojito and Apple – and really like them. They are a lot like the Memento Luxe Inks but less juicy so they give you a crisp image.

And that bow? Isn’t it fabulous? I used the new Mama Elephant Dainty Bow die

I had such fun creating this guy that I did another. This time I used two shades of green ink and a black stamped greeting. The greeting is again from the Winter Wonderland set.

Love how easy the little berries are with Ruby Liquid Pearls

I also wanted to create a quick card with the Party Kit stamp set and use it as it was intended to be used – on a celebration card! I used many of the new Mama Elephant Ink colors. Yum!

Next, hop over to the blog of one of my bestest friends, Kathy Racoosin. (If you want to start at the beginning, head to the Mama Elephant blog. The have some great sales and deals and such going on – be sure to check them out.)
