Mama Elephant July Stampede

July 15, 2013

Welcome to the Mama Elephant July Design Team blog hop! 
Our July release is now live and available for purchase in the store!  I'm working with the "Hustle" stamp set today, which is a super cool sentiment set!  I kept it super simple this time around, and combined it with the "Today Was" & "Good Times" stamp sets.  Here is what I created!

1. Make A2 card from white cardstock, then round the bottom right corner.
2. Stamp the triangles to the front in red.
3. Stamp the sentiment slightly over top of the triangles in black.
4. Stamp the hand to the right of the arrow.
5. Accent with red & black jewels to finish.

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 the last Stamp Highlight day.  **Please DO NOT leave multiple comments on my need only leave one!  Multiple comments is for the Mama Elephant blog only. Thanks!!**
