Hello! Do I have exciting news for you today?! My pal, Kryssi Ng, has launched a brand new stamp company with her pal, Angela, called Mama Elephant and I am so happy to join in the blog hop! If you're here from the blog of Cristina Kowalczyk, then you are right on track with the Mama Elephant Grand Opening Stampede. If you happen to have stumbled upon this post, start here.

About the company: Mama Elephant is owned and operated by two childhood friends from NYC. We are so happy to bring the collaboration of our aesthetics to Mama Elephant! Our stamps are designed with card makers and scrapbookers in mind! Our stamps are carefully curated to provide optimal versatility with a wide variety of styles - cute, whimsical, bold, graphic, and fun!

Here's one of the eight sets in Mama Elephant's first release, Trifecta.


Don't you just love this stamp set? Here's a layout I made with the set.

Materials used: Mama Elephant Trifecta stamp set, Martha Stewart medium balloon punch, American Craft Zing Embossing Powder in Gold, Colorbox Chalk Ink in Tangerine and Yellow Citrus, Ranger Adirondack Lights Ink in Shell Pink, Colorbok alpha stickers, K&Company Actopus to Zelephant Wood, Bazzill Cardstock, velvet ribbon


A closer look: To create a geometric background with lots of floating balloons, I masked the background with balloons and added the pattern color strip by color strip. I then took the masks and used them for more dimension. To round it all off, I added a wood grain balloon and a gold embossed balloon. I love how these techniques combine to create great textures and dimension.
