ME Stamp Highlight: Hustle

July 19, 2013

Happy Friday, all!!  Welcome to the weekend!  What do you have on your plate for the next few days?  Me- I'm editing photos & finishing up some last minute packing today.  Tomorrow I have a wedding to shoot, so I will be at that all day long.  Then Sunday we are moving the rest of our stuff to our storage unit, doing the last minute cleaning of the house, & then moving in with our friends for the next month.  And on Monday...I leave for Summer CHA in Vegas!!  So excited to meet so many people in person that I feel like I "know"...and just have a great time!

Today is our final release day for Mama Elephant, and we are showcasing the "Hustle" stamp set.  This set is full of super fun & trendy sentiments!  I chose a bright, rainbow color theme to pair with the fabulous #YOLO sentiment. I made it a birthday card by adding the Let's Celebrate from the "Say What" stamp set!  This is what I created!
1. Make A2 card from red cardstock.
2. Add a polka dot paper strip across the front of it at an angle.
3. Stamp the top sentiment in white, & the bottom sentiment in black.
4. Wrap twine around the middle, and finish with a bow.
5. Add the printed cut-outs & wood veneer @ symbol to the upper left corner.
6. Adhere a glittered photo corner & dotted rhinestone to the bottom right corner.
7. Add an arrow sticker pointing to the bottom sentiment to finish.

This card makes me think of my Aunt Amy & her daughter, Molly.  This motto has been their mantra lately,  and the bright colors are just so fitting! They both even wear pretty bright colors most of the time!!

"Hustle", along with all the other new stamp sets are available for purchase right now at the Mama Elephant store!  Be sure to head on over and pick up your faves!

The other Mama Elephant card designers have also created some fabulous projects using today's stamp set as sure to check them all out!
