*THIS POST CONTAINS LOTS OF STUFF, INCLUDING PRIZE INFORMATION, SO PLEASE READ ALL THE WAY THROUGH!*
OH EM GEE!! I have been keeping a secret that has been KILLING me!! LOL The amazingly talented and adorable Kryssi Ng contacted me a while back and asked me to help her launch her brand new stamp line, Mama Elephant, and of course I HAD to do it – Kryssi’s my girl!! To say that I was blown away when I saw the images is an understatement – I was rendered speechless when I saw them. The images that she and her friend created together are so right up my alley, I nearly cried. Clean, simple, graphic and amazing – be still my heart!! So let’s get down to business, shall we?
First off, here’s a little bit of info about Mama Elephant:
Mama Elephant is owned and operated by two childhood friends from NYC. We are so happy to bring the collaboration of our aesthetics to Mama Elephant! Our stamps are designed with card makers and scrapbookers in mind! Our stamps are carefully curated to provide optimal versatility with a wide variety of styles - cute, whimsical, bold, graphic, and fun!
So today is the Grand Opening of Mama Elephant. Kryssi has arranged an amazing blog hop for your inspiration and viewing pleasure. The hop begins at the Mama Elephant Blog. You should start there so that you don’t miss a thing! Hopefully you arrived here from Kalyn Kepner’s blog. If not, please head back to the Mama Elephant Blog to get caught up (I believe that there are prizes involved!!)
I seriously swooned when I saw the images contained in the Believe In Magic set – cityscapes, snowglobes, silhouettes . . . they took my breath away! To create my sample, I cut out a circle using my Circle Nestabilities for the snow globe. I then stamped the cityscape, some snow and stars, and the bubbles at the top (the detail in this set is amazing, I tell ya!) using gray pigment ink. I stamped the reindeer silhouette using black dye ink. The base of the snow globe was stamped in the gray pigment ink and then cut out by hand – easy sleazy! The sentiments in this set are so perfectly unique and perfect for the season. I know you’re going to love this set, as well as the other new releases, as much as I do!
