January Release and Stampede



Welcome to the Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop!

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




www.mamaelephant.com

I have two cards to share with you today! I'm slightly obsessed with the new Botanic Hello and have found that there is much you can do with this set!


Here, I white embossed the image onto kraft cardstock then took a white colored pencil and gave the florals some shading. It really made the HELLO stand out and gave the florals a softer look.

The next card is created by our resident crafter Cindy who kept making Benedict Cumberbatch references when she was looking at the Otterly Adorable set. We came across a couple of references on our social media accounts too when we first peeked Otterly Adorable.

Apparently, there's something about a wildly popular show starring Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and that he resembles an otter?! I gave Cindy free liberty to pay homage to this reference and here is what she created!


Cute, right? And the "did you miss me?" sentiment relates to the fact that the show only airs something like 3 episodes every few years?! Whaaaat?!

On the inside she stamped the sentiment "because I've missed you."


Such a great card in general, but especially for those who gets these Sherlock/Benedict Cumberbatch references!
