Welcome to day one of Stamp Highlights! Each day the Design Team will showcase a new stamp set with their amazing projects! Today we start with the new Peonies in Bloom stamp set!

We love everything Maria used to put this card together! From the gold embossing powder to the clear water beads!

 Keeway embossed our Peonies in Bloom and arranged them in a frame from the Artist Mat Creative Cuts. Her falling leaves and ink blending adds a beautiful movement to the card!

 We love Laura's peony bouquet framed using the Framed Tags-Artist Mat-Creative Cuts and sentiment from Occasional Labels.

 Mette created an elegant card with the Peonies In Bloom stamps and the Artist Mat and Ribbon Banner die sets.

Love this tag and card set by Vera! She used the new Peonies in Bloom set with the Artist Mat Creative Cuts.

Beautiful card by Amy using the Peonies in Bloom with the Artist Mat Creative Cuts.

Nichol's soft and pretty Peonies in Bloom border is perfectly framed with the new Framed Tags Artist Mat Creative Cuts.

INTRODUCING: Peonies in Bloom + Designers Announcement

Welcome to the last day of Intros!

The final Intro for is none other that this gorgeous peony set called Peonies in Bloom illustrated by the lovely Anna Oszvald! Peonies are my absolute favorite flowers of all, I was thrilled with the end result of these illustrations. Anna really captured the beauty of peonies!

Watch Rina's captivating project below!

ugh! These are so pretty! Rina did an amazing job! I love how the peonies are large and really stand out! Used in a bunch and set against that vintage woodgrain background - and they are just drop dead gorgeous!

I'm totally crushing on this card, Rina!!!

Whew! That wraps up the Introductions! Didn't Rina work her butt off and created such inspirational eye candy all week? Thank you , Rina! She's not quite done yet, she's got another one up her sleeve for the Stampede!

Before we wrap up this post, I'm pleased to announce that Mette Witus is joining the ME Family full time! That's right, you'll get to see her innovative work with every release now! She has continually blown us away with what she does with our stamps and dies, so it was a no brainer that she joins us for good so she can continue to share with us wonderful new ideas and inspiration using Mama Elephant goodies! Make sure you check out Mette's Instagram feed, loads and loads of eye candy!

We are also pleased to announce the addition of Maria Peters as a contributing designer! Her work will mostly be graced on Instagram! We are blown away with how beautiful all her work is, and are so thrilled to have her join the Me Family as well!

Check out some of Maria's ME projects HEREHEREHERE, and HERE.

And a fond farewell....

We are teary-eyed to announce that this is Laura Bassen's last release with us. Laura has decided to step down for personal reasons. Laura has been with us for, more or less, 6 years. That's a long time, pretty much since ME was a baby elephant! We are absolutely grateful for all the fun rainbow magic and joy she's created these past 6 years. Laura's bright persona has always oozed onto her cards and we're gonna miss every bit of it, truly! We are so sad to see her go, but fear not, I'm sure she will make an appearance every now and then around here! Thank you again Laura for growing with us. We wish you everything good in the future, you'll always be part of the ME Family. Love you! XO!

The release will go live tonight at 12 midnight EST! The Design Team Stampede will be happening right here tomorrow morning at 9AM EST!
