ME Stamp Highlight: Full House

Happy Wednesday, friends!  How are you doing today?  I am doing pretty good....feeling a little overwhelmed with everything I have going on right now.  Which is turning me into an insomniac.  But- I think after this weekend I will feel A LOT better.  We will officially have all of our stuff out of the house & it will be ready to turn over to the new owners.  I have my last wedding for July on Saturday.  My projects for CHA will be finished.  And on Monday...I will be on my WAY to CHA!  Yay!!  I cannot wait!

Today I have another card to share with you for the Mama Elephant release week, and today we are showcasing the "Full House" stamp set.  This is a fun little home themed set that has the cutest speech bubble sentiments included on it!!  I paired the stamps with a card from the June Project Life kit for Studio Calico & added in some tags from Elle's Studio & Teresa Collins Designs.  Here is what I created!
Instructions:
1. Make A2 card from oatmeal cardstock, then round the lower right corners.
2. Stamp the row of houses & the sentiment to the front of the map card, then adhere to the lower right corner with foam adhesive.
3. Cut the banner edges from a paper border & tuck into each side of the stamped card.
4. Add the "remember" tab to the top of the stamped card, then accent with pearls.
5. Adhere the circle tag to the top of the stamped card.
6. Tie a double bow from twine, thread a button around the middle, then adhere to the front.
7. Accent with wood veneer stars to finish.

"Full House", along with all the other new stamp sets are available for purchase right now at the Mama Elephant store!  Be sure to head on over and pick up your faves!

The other Mama Elephant card designers have also created some fabulous projects using today's stamp set as well...be sure to check them all out!
