A Clean and Trendy Card with Mama Elephant

One of the best things about selling old stamps, is getting money to buy new stamps. I have been following and loving Mama Elephant, a new clear stamp company. Not only are the stamps cute, clean and trendy, they produce a clear and brilliant image when stamped. Seriously, this is a stamp company that's got it going in terms of design and trendy sets. You're going to want to buy it all the  minute you see it. On their blog, they have a weekly sketch challenge, and I had so much fun playing along! I'm a fan of geometric shapes, so I pulled out the Trifecta set, and created this fun little card.
I flipped the sketch on it's side. I stamped the border of triangles across the top to bring more attention to it, and then combined stamped images with patterned paper triangles. For the cluster and sentiment, I stamped some more triangles on the cardstock, and then layered elements like thread and the sentiment over it.


I had so much fun playing along in this challenge! You can play along too! The sketch challenge will run to Monday, April 14th at 3pm EST. Winners of the challenge will receive two new sets from the upcoming release, and will design alongside the design team in the monthly stampede, as well as being featured on the blog throughout the month! How much fun is that.
