Welcome to the Mama Elephant February Design Team blog hop! Our November release is now live and available for purchase in the store: www.mamaelephant.com.
All four new stamp sets are incredible this month. Incredible!
I thought it would be fun to take the Fair Feathers stamp set and show how you can create a super fast set of cards to give as a gift to a teacher, sister, friend, etc. This set of cards will be going in a gift basket I'm putting together for my youngest son's second grade teacher. I created all 10 cards in about 30 minutes! Not bad, eh?!!!! ;)
To make the set of cards I first set up some text in my word processing program and printed "from the desk of...." on ten 4.25 x 11" sheets of cardstock. I purposely chose a font that worked well with the font in the greeting stamp so that the whole thing would flow nicely.
Next I took black ink and stamped "just a little note" above the printed text on each card. I love how it looks like it all goes together!
I stamped the ink well in black and then I took five of the Mama Elephant inks and stamped a feather in each inkwell and added stamped splotches to finish the cards. I stamped 2 of each color for a total of 10 cards.
The cards are so pretty, don't ya think?!! I think that I might just be making a few more sets of these to give as gifts!
