Mama Elephant May Stampede!

This is my second post of the day. Please click here to see my post for Krafty Peeks Day 1. Thanks! =)



Hi and welcome to Mama Elephant May Stampede! If you arrived from Iwona Palamountain's Blog you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from Mama Elephant Blog. All new May stamps are available starting NOW in the Mama Elephant Store and we are celebrating it with a blog hop! We have some of the most talented ladies guest designing for us this month and you wouldn't want to miss any stop of the hop! Without further ado, here is my card for the Stampede.


I played with the fun Soiree set. I just love those banners, the possibilities are endless! =)


I stamped the individual banners on cardstock, trim the out then attached them to my card with machine stitching. A little piece of foam tape was tucked under each banner to get the dimension. The hearts and sentiment are also from the Soiree set.

That's all I have. It's time to send you to JJ Bolton's Blog. Don't forget to leave comments along the way, Mama Elephant is giving away 3 gift certificates worth $20.00 each to 3 lucky person!
