Mama Elephant November Stampede

Welcome to the Mama Elephant November Design Team blog hop! Our November release is now live and available for purchase in the store. You should have arrived here from JJ Bolton's blog, but if you got lost along the way you can head back to the Mama Elephant blog.

I decided to play with the fun new Confetti stamp set to create a gift card holder! Gift cards may sometimes seem like an impersonal gift, but you can definitely personalize it by making a handmade gift card holder. I used the super fun confetti stamps and the snowflake from Four Seasons to stamp a winter-y design at the top of my card. Love the handwritten sentiment from the Confetti set. 


Inside, I simply stamped the ribbon and the bow with Mama Elephant's Ocean ink to finish it off. Just tuck in a gift card and the little present is good to go!

To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away one of each of the new stamps released! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. Winners will be announced on the blog on the last Stamp Highlights Day.

You have up to 3 chances to qualify to win! Just leave a separate comment for each!
