Mama Elephant 6th Anniversary Hop

Mama Elephant 6th Anniversary Hop

Mama Elephant is celebrating their 6th anniversary with a festive new release, an awesome sale and giveaways (all the details below), and tons of inspiration. Welcome to Day 3 of the Mama Elephant #celebrating6years Anniversary Release Stampede.

My stop on the hop features Santa’s Sleigh stamp set and matching dies (along with some older must-haves I’ll list below).


It’s getting close to Christmas and Santa’s takin’ a moment by his window in the calm before the storm … or at least that’s what I imagined when making this scene. *laugh* You’ll also spot one of my go-to Mama Elephant stamp sets: Basic Borders. The 5 patterns included in the set are versatile staples and one just happens to makes the perfect peppermint stripe.


Santa’s Sleigh includes a sign post stamp that’s blank, letting you make it say whatever you want. You could easily find a stamp that works - even masking to add just a word or two - but I’ve gone the simplest route; adding “North Pole” in by hand. I’ve also used a quick trick for anchoring a scene by adding a bit of “snow” (using Diamond Stickles) to give the impression the sign and presents are outside.


I’m a clean and simple gal, but love the look of dimension. I created it on this design with foam tape (popping up the window and double-poppin’ the sign post) and on the tree by stamping in two shades of green ink. I used the MISTI and did a pass with a light green and then another with a darker (inking random spots). It’s subtle, but effective for creating one layer dimension. Diamond Stickles also make a repeat appearance to add sparkle to the “lights” and the top of the sign post (over simple shading done with a BG10 Copic). Truth be told, I’m tad obsessed with Diamond Stickles and think everyone should have it in their snow-making arsenal. *laugh*
