ME Stamp Highlight: Flashy Letters

April 19, 2013

We've made it to Friday, all!!  I hope that your week has been a good one!  We are finalizing our weekend plans, and trying to decide if we want to make a quick little jaunt over to Spokane together.  Josh would have to work most of the day on Saturday, but I could go shopping and hang with my Aunt if she is in town & available.  We shall see...I will let you know in my next post if we end up going!  :)

Today at Mama Elephant we are showcasing the final new stamp set for April, and it is an alphabet stamp set that you will just LOVE!  It is called "Flashy Letters", and it is the same font that many of the sentiments from this month were created in as well!  I love how cohesive the majority of this release was, and how well three of the stamp sets work together!  For my card today, I went with a little sparkle...and created a custom sentiment using my computer and the stamp set.  This is one of my latest fave sayings right is my pick me up when I'm feeling down, so I knew I had to create a card with it!  Here is what I made!
1. Make A2 card from white cardstock.
2. Print the top part of the sentiment using your Microsoft Word or Photoshop & the Century Gothic font.
3. Stamp the rest of the sentiment directly below the printed part.
4. Cut five 1/4-inch strips of cardstock and attach them to a piece of scrap cardstock.
5. Cover them in glitter, then adhere to the top of the card.
6. Fussy cut a camera from patterned paper, then adhere next to the sentiment.
7. Add matching colored jewels underneath the sentiment to finish.

Yeah- I pretty much love how this turned out.  Rainbows, sparkle, a fabulous sentiment, a cute little Polaroid pretty much can't go wrong with those things.  Even better when they're combined....tee hee!!

The other Mama Elephant designers also have some projects to share using the Flashy Letters stamps be sure to check them out too!
