Welcome to Mama Elephant's Grand Opening Stampede!
(Or Blog Hop, whatever you wanna call it. I thought stampede was cute and fitting ;)

Since this is everyone's first time here, how about a little intro?

Mama Elephant is owned and operated by two childhood friends from NYC. We are so proud 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!

Angela and I have known each other since we were best friends in the 5th grade! Social media wasn't around in the 90's, so we kind of lost touch for awhile. During that time, it's funny how we both pursued an education in the creative field. We have united after many years and picked up right where we left off and decided to go on this venture together! We're both mamas and we both have an affection for elephants, with daughters named Ella and Ellie -- hence the name Mama Elephant!  We hope you're as excited as we are! As lifelong artists, there is nothing more gratifying than sharing our art and designs!

To shop our stamps, visit our shop here: www.mamaelephant.com

We welcome you to follow our blog. Find us on Twitter, Flickr, and Pinterest

Oh and of course there's Facebook! Do stop by and say hello, we're picking a winner from there too!

Sooo, to celebrate this big day, we invited some super talented designers to showcase our stamps. Comment on their blogs to win some freebies! We're also having a grand opening sale! Take 10% off your purchase with coupon: GRANDOPEN!

Here are today's designers:



Hop along with us and soak in the inspiration! We're giving away a bunch of gift certificates! 

I created this layout that uses 6 out of the 8 stamp sets we are releasing today. You'll see these stamps showcased as well as another card from me along the hop on my personal blog.









So there you go! The next stop on the hop is my sweet friend, Teri Anderson! Love her to bits and I know she's got something fun up her sleeve!! 

Remember to come back tomorrow for the second round with all new designers!

XO, kryssi
