Product & Project Close-Up: Mama Elephant + GIVEAWAY

Hello! Today I have a Product and Product Close-Up Video focusing on the newest Mama Elephant release. The video gives a close look at the new products and three project ideas.

My video starts with a look at the newest Mama Elephant products. You can find them all at Simon Says Stamp or Mama Elephant! I find it helpful to see what products look like in “real life”… and also to have ideas on how to use them. Hope it helps you!

I created a few projects. The first is a little gift box…

This features the Mama Elephant Me and My Yeti and Sentiments From A Yeti stamp sets… and the Mama Elephant Scallops Square Box Die. I like the size of this gift box and that it is super fast to make. And that yeti is super cute!

My next card is a bit different. I created a funky snowman using Mama Elephant Snow Flurries and Hero Arts Infinity Circles die cuts stacked together. The hat is from the Mama Elephant Favor Bag Accessory Snow Deer Die Set and the “hello” is from the Hello Friend Script Die (more on that one below). I created the background by stamping the entire Mama Elephant Holly’s Snowflakes stamp set!

And finally… another funky snowman! 😉 I created him out of images from the Puffy Holiday Greetings Stamp Set. The background is tone-on-tone with Mama Elephant Snow Flurries die cuts.


Today I am part of a very special blog hop – celebrating Mama Elephant‘s 5th birthday! I have been friends with Mama Elephant from the beginning and adore their style and creativity. And kindness!
