Mama Elephant April Stampede



Welcome to the Mama Elephant April Design Team blog hop! Our April release is now live and available for purchase in the store: www.mamaelephant.com.

To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away 3 gift certificates worth $20.00 each to 3 lucky people! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. Winners will be announced on the blog on Friday, April 19th.

I've used the new stamp set "Central Park" for my card today, and I kept it super clean & simple!!  I love how well this stamp set worked with these fabulous glittery Thickers!  Here is what I created!


Instructions:
1. Make A2 card from kraft cardstock.
2. Stamp the cityscape to the bottom of the card front.
3. Stamp the speech bubble and heart above the city scape.
4. Add the sentiment using glitter thickers to the bottom of the cityscape.
5. Adhere gold stars randomly to the top of the card to finish.

Challenges:
-CAS-ual Fridays #98 - Glitter
-The Kraft Journal #117 - Clean & Simple
-Totally PaperCrafts #162 - Kraft
-V's Sweet Ideas #10 - Anything Goes











See?  Easy peasy...and super cute!  These could easily be mass produced with a number of different sentiments, and different icons in the speech bubble!  The gold stars are not listed in the supply list above, and that is because I picked them up at Michael's in the sequins section.  Just an FYI if you are looking for them!
