Mama Elephant July New Release Stampede!!


Hola my chicas!!

I am thrilled beyond imagination to announce that I’m guest designing for Mama Elephant this month – ACCKKKKK!!!  When I received the new stamps, I screamed with delight at their cuteness.  Thank you, Kryssi, for asking me to join in on all the fun this month!!  I get the great pleasure of sharing a few samples for today’s July Stampede blog hop.  So let’s get started, shall we?

JULY

First off, I should tell you that the new stamps are available for purchase NOW at the Mama Elephant Store.  Next, if you arrived here from the Mama Elephant Blog, you’re on the right track.  If you didn’t start there, you totally need to go back there because I wouldn’t want you to miss a thing – especially the chance to win some amazing prizes!

To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away THREE gift certificates worth $20 each to THREE LUCKY PEOPLE!  Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede.  Winners will be announced on the Mama Elephant blog on the last Stamp Highlight day (July 19th).

Here’s how to qualify to win (leave a separate comment for each):
1.  Leave a comment on this blog post;
2.  Become a follower of the Mama Elephant blog;
3.  Like/share us on Facebook; and/or
4.  Follow/tweet us on Twitter.
Here’s the list of participants in this month’s Stampede (in case you get lost along the way):

Karolyn Loncon <------YOU’RE HERE!


Full House - Mama Elephant July 2013
(Click to enlarge photo)
My first sample features the uber adorable stamp set called Full House!  This stamp set is full of some of the most adorable little houses and word bubble sentiments you’ve ever seen!  They’re graphic and fun and cute all at the same time – be still my itty bitty little heart!!  I grabbed the city scape buildings from Bling and went to town (no pun intended!  LOL) stamping my little village.  Do you not just love those little houses?!!

Hustle - Mama Elephant July 2013

My next sample features an amazing sentiment set called Hustle.  I love that Kryssi and Angela use current trendy songs and sayings to provide us with the opportunity to express our feelings in a super fun way!  I stamped the sentiment onto the large cloud in black dye ink, and then stamped it again on a scrap using a spectrum stamp pad to get the rainbow look.  I trimmed out the banner and popped it up using foam dots.  The raindrops are from Up & Away.

Your next stop in the Stampede is the amazingly talented JJ Bolton – no doubt she has some crafty deliciousness that will blow your mind!  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.  I’ve listed the products I used below!  Have a great day!
