STAMP HIGHLIGHT: REWIND

Rewind is today's stamp highlight. Let's make some noise and rewind back in time where we all donned our walkman and grooved to the music from our stacks and stacks of cassette tapes! This set will certainly bring a smile to those who would like to reminisce. 



Our Design Team sure ROCKED these projects!


The cassette tape with a paper pieced label pops against the bright colors behind.


How about the cassette coloured in primary colours? The enamel dots give life to the cassette stamp and it looks like it has something fun to tell us!


Emily's cassette tape anchors a three-part sentiment created by combining several words and phrases from Rewind. The ampersand from Index Card Creative Cuts, animals from Carnival Cupcakes and sweet little speech bubbles from Polaroid Fun tie it all together.


Ashley's card is perfectly paper pieced with a soft grey sentiment that totally rocks!

STAMP HIGHLIGHT: CARNIVAL TOPPERS

Hi All! We are back with our second day of Stamp Highlights with Carnival Toppers! There was so much goodness from the collaboration with Torico, we couldn't fit it all in a 4x6 set so we ended up with a second set! The sentiments in this set makes us giggle and the little images are just darling! We hope you feel the same!




Nichol stamped and embossed one of the Carnival Toppers greetings on vellum, embossing with silver powder and placing the vellum inside the Polaroid Fun Creative Cuts frame. A Copic colored cupcake from the Carnival Cupcakes Stamp Set adorned with the Carnival Toppers flower accent adds a bright pop of color to the card.



Elena brought the cuteness to this bunny party! We love the confetti background.



Geralyn created a festive birthday card with Carnival Toppers. The little dot stamp was perfect for stamping a confetti background.



Laura used the Carnival Cupcakes, Carnival Toppers & coordinating dies to create this fun cupcake card.



Pamela made a simple birthday card with 5 candles, perfect for a child turning 5!


Emily stretched out the longest sentiment in the set by breaking it up and having the little girl from In My Heart emphasize the buying part. LOL! The cute little speech bubbles and polaroid frames are from Polaroid Fun Creative Cuts.


Torico created this card using the chalkboard technique. She heat embossed the images in three colors!

STAMP HIGHLIGHT : CARNIVAL CUPCAKES

Hello all! Today we start our first Stamp Highlight with Carnival Cupcakes! These super adorable images just speaks for itself! We at Mama Elephant are genuinely honored to have this collaboration with Torico because she is truly amazing! This set is beyond cute with a cherry on top!



So who is ready to be over dosed with sweetness?!


Ashley used a combination of stamps and dies to create her sweet cupcake. The tiny bunny topper is the perfect addition to this congratulations card!



A trio of sweet Copic colored animal Carnival Cupcakes with glitter frosting will bring a smile to any birthday boy or girl's face! Nichol created her own text background with a Sentimental Borders stamp inked with white on a dark cardstock so the cupcakes take center stage and stamped and embossed a greeting from Carnival Toppers on the Bold Banner vellum die cut to finish the design.



Elena showed it's doesn't have to be about cupcakes - the animals are adorable all on their own!



Torico kept the design quite simple to make the watercolored cupcakes stand out.



Laura created a little birthday party with the critters from the Carnival Cupcakes.



Emily created a complete party scene using the streamers and confetti from Party Kit, along with a sentiment from Carnival Toppers. Index Card Creative Cuts provides the perfect card base.

August Release + Stampede



Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop!

Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!




I have a really delicious and fun project to show you today! I'm not very good at setting up shots and stuff like that, but a cupcake set called for real cupcakes! I first die cut all the large animals in Carnival Cupcakes, and colored them. Then did the same with one of the party hats from Carnival Toppers.



How cute are they, huh?

They were all assembled and mounted onto toothpicks and then stuck onto these pretty lemon cupcakes. Which by the way were from Target and they were surprisingly really, really good! The icing wasn't too sweet and inside the cupcake, there is more lemony surprise! Thinking of getting some more now....




To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away one of each of the new stamps released! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. Winners will be announced on the blog on the last Stamp Highlights day. You have up to 3 chances to qualify to win!
