CUPCAKES + Introducing our newest designer!

Torico really designed a beautiful cupcake set and I thought you needed to see it all together a second time! We actually had so many ideas that they wouldn't fit in a 4x6 space so we expanded to the companion set. Trust me, you're gonna need both!

Very simple and chic card. I die cut the card panel with my favorite Index Card Creative Cuts set. A2 cards are really just too big sometimes, and this size is perfect and super cute... and scallops!!

Very easy cupcake card using Carnival Cupcakes with strawberry Copic -colored icing today. Doesn't that look yummy and gorgeous? I paired it with the perfect sentiment from Carnival Toppers, of course! 


To add to the chic feel, I took a small dot stamp from Party Kit and stamped gold dots all over for a polka dotty pattern. I love this card so much I think I'll use this design again and again!

Before I go, I'd like to welcome Ashley Marcu, newest designer to the TEAM ME!


I have been friends with Ashley ever since I started stamping and have been following her work all along. Her work is bright, cheerful and consistently beautiful! On top of all that talent, she's a total sweetie pie! You'll see Ashley's work starting tomorrow!

And now a few words from Ashley herself!

My name is Ashley and I live in a suburb near Seattle Washington with my husband and three young energetic kids. I've been crafting since I was a little girl and was thrilled to stumble in to card making after the birth of my first child in 2007. I have been published multiple times in Paper Crafts magazine and was crowned Stamping Royalty in 2012. I'm excited to be designing for Mama Elephant as well as other top companies in the industry. Besides crafting I enjoy being outside, watching football (go Seahawks!) and watching soccer (go Sounders!).

Remember, our August release will be available for purchase tonight around 12 AM EST!

That's it from me today! Thanks for joining me all week, see you tomorrow for our Stampede! It's gonna be a yummy one for sure!
