ME Stamp Highlight: Wanderlust

May 17, 2013

Happy Friday, friends!  It's almost the weekend!!!  Yay!!  I feel like we have a million things going on this weekend.  Our neighborhood has an annual garage sale every year, and Saturday is the day.  While that is going on, I have to run to my cousin's graduation lunch to celebrate with her & my family a bit...then come back to help pack up what doesn't sell at the garage sale.  Then we have to decide if we are going to another graduation party that evening, or if we are going to stay home & just veg out a bit.  Then Sunday looks like it is going to be just as busy.....definitely not a lazy weekend for the Lawson household.

Today we are showcasing another new Mama Elephant stamp set called "Wanderlust".  This is my fave stamp set from this release, and I just know that I am going to be grabbing for it quite often.  I paired it with some fave Studio Calico product, and this is what it came of it!
1. Make A2 card from white cardstock.
2. Cut background paper slightly smaller, then adhere.
3. Layer the journal card to the front, then stamp the map to it.
4. Stamp the tag, then layer to the left side of the card with the orange sentiment card.
5. Add letter stickers to the tag, then accent the top of the map with a vellum map & sticker.
6. Stamp the sentiment banner to map paper, cut out & adhere below the vellum map.
7. Add a map banner strip to the bottom of the card, then accent with two arrows.
8. Wrap twine around the top of the card, then accent with a jewel.
9 Add two triangle diecuts to the top of the card, then accent with sequins & pearls to finish.
