Hi everyone! Let's dust off the cob webs because today I am happy to announce something fun that we've been planning for some time now! This blog is here to inspire and encourage you to use your stamps, and what way to get your mojo kicking than a good old fashioned challenge?! I've personally been on a few amazing Challenge Design Teams myself in the past, so I know how a challenge can really get you going in the right direction.
So! Here we are, Mama Elephant's first challenge, and it's a color challenge perfect for this time of the year! Anyone else not done with their holiday cards yet? Yeah, me too!
I decided to go with my one of my favorite color combos:
Red, aqua, white and glitter -- cause glitter is just awesome!
Here's how to play along:
- Create a project with the challenge colors
- You must use Mama Elephant stamps and/or the free digital stamp
- Grab the challenge graphics for your post
- Link to this Mama Elephant blog post
- Deadline to enter is December 30, 3:00PM EST
What you're playing for:
- One winner will be selected to be a Guest Designer for an upcoming release
- One winner will be selected at random to receive a $15 gift certificate to our store
We want to make sure that everyone can play along so we are providing a freebie for you to download and use. You can right click to copy and save as on your computer or simply click HERE to download the free May You Be Merry digital stamp.
Here's a stack of cards I made with the May You Be Merry digital stamp:
I actually made a few different variations using the same elements, just moved things around.
The triangle pattern is stamped with our Trifecta stamp set. You need this one, seriously.
I've also got a little treat for you. As you know there are two Mama's in Mama Elephant -- myself and Angela. She got inky and did a great job on her debut card using Polar Pals!
We are so fortunate to have so many talented and generous friends in this little stamping industry. I've managed to round up a few of my peeps to play alongside our Design Team! Let's take a look at rest the inspiration parade!
