Mama Elephant October Anniversary Stampede!



For the second anniversary of Mama Elephant, I made a card "collection"...blame Project Runway...I have been watching too many episodes!

To create this card set, I used:

  • 2 sheets of 6x6 Christmas paper from Crate Paper
  • 1 Walzingmouse die
  • 1 type of twine
  • and the fabulous stamp set from Mama Elephant called Alpine Carolers

Nothing says happy like Christmas lights! I colored these with copics and put them on 2 pieces of the the patterned paper. Pretty easy and timeless layout.

For this card, I used the die cuts on patterned paper. I colored this mini cutie with copics and stamped part of the sentiment for a banner.

Here is a close up of the little guy!

I kept the same color scheme on each card. For this one, I *cough**Jocelyn Olson*cough**colored the purse.  She reminds me of a girl who loves a little retail therapy!
