Mama Elephant August Stampede


Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop! Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store! You should have arrived here from Elena Roussakis' blog, but if you got lost along the way you can always head to the Mama Elephant blog for the complete bloghop list. 

This month's stamps are adorable, and I fell in love with Carnival Cupcakes and Carnival Toppers. I combined the two to create a cute and festive birthday card. I colored in the cupcake, bunny ears, banner and candle with my watercolors, and I adhered everything with foam adhesive for more dimension! 

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!
