Mama Elephant May Stampede



Welcome to the Mama Elephant May Design Team blog hop! Our May release is now live and available for purchase in the store: www.mamaelephant.com. You should have arrived here from Samantha Mann's blog :)

I think May's stamps are my all time favorite release! I played with the new Filigree stamp set and made a thank you card. Isn't that doily gorgeous? I heat embossed the doily in white and then coloured it in with my handy watercolors. So happy with how it turned out :)

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 May 19th.
