ME Stamp Highlight: Lovely Mums

Happy Saturday, everyone!!  How was your Friday?  I had a great day with my friend Alex.  It was her birthday, so we went to lunch together at Cafe Dolce, and then later on that evening we went out with a bunch of friends to Sushi Hana, then on to the Top Hat for some bluegrass music.  It was a great evening out together!!  Today I have a 3-hour wedding shoot....my first one of the season!  It's kind-of nice that my first wedding is just a very short one, versus jumping right into a 10 hour day.

Today we are showcasing a brand new Mama Elephant stamp set called "Lovely Mums".  This beautiful stamp set that is floral, with really wonderful sentiments.  As a card maker who is more product oriented, I focused on the sentiments this time around and combined them with some amazing Heidi Swapp product.  Here is what I created!
Instructions:
1. Make a 4x6 inch card from vintage cream cardstock.
2. Cut background paper slightly smaller, and adhere to the front.
3. Cut a floral strip, and adhere to the top.
4. Add a yellow tag to the right side, then stamp & add thickers to the bottom of it for the sentiment.
5. Take apart the dimensional border sticker, and stamp the sentiments to the top label.
6. Put back together, and adhere across the middle of the card.
7. Add another dimensional banner to the upper left corner, then accent with jewels to finish.

Challenges:
-A Blog Named Hero #22 - Freestyle
-Aud Sentiments - Girly
-Desert Islands Crafts #50 - Pick 3 (yellow, 3+ papers, sentiment on front)
-Divas by Design #85 - Pink
-Fab N Funky #162 - Add a Sentiment
-By The Cute and Girly March - Favorite Things
-Word Art Wednesday #71 - Anything Goes











I am just loving these fun Heidi Swapp products!  I love how the brand new border sticker has helped me freshen up the older Sugar Chic 6x6 paper pad...love it!

The other Mama Elephant designers also have some projects to share using the Lovely Mums stamps set....so be sure to check them out too!

  2. Hello Lea! I was stuck in traffic in the 'burbs of Detroit the other day. I was behind a Big Sky Brewing Co. truck. When I read Missoula, Missouri, of course I thought of you and your wonderful talent! I thought of how I go through my reader and see your wonderful creations, but don't always comment. So I told myself that the next time I go through my reader that I will send you some love! Well, when I did this morning yours was the very first post with this outstanding card! I love the banner a lot and all of those "Lea layers of fun". What mom wouldn't love to receive this??? Have a great weekend!
