Mama Elephant Stampede!

Seriously, pinch me. 
I love Mama Elephant.  I LOVE Mama Elephant so much - to be participating in the 2nd anniversary stampede is such an honor!  If you're joining mid-way - be sure to head to the MAMA ELEPHANT BLOG to start from the beginning!
I got to play with the new Mama Elephant Peace On Earth stamp set.
Gorgeous, right? Sigh - I find this set just beautiful. 

Now for a few projects with this set...
First I layered the sentiment on a pile of patterned papers, gold foil paper and vellum.  I then heat embossed the doves and added gold die cut accents with the Confetti die.  The striped stamp along the bottom of the sentiment panel is from Basic Borders.

Next up, I used the same sentiment on a shimmery card stock base.  Then, I added a cityscape die and some snow drifts using the landscape trio die to create a little scene!

For the celebration, there's a deal over on the Mama Elephant website!
* There will be a 10% discount code active for the 3 day blog hop (HAPPY2ME)
* Purchases over $100 will receive the HAPPY EVERYTHING stamp set free.
* Purchases over $150 will receive the HAPPY EVERYTHING stamp set and HAPPY SCRIPT die free.

And a few giveaways too!
* We are giving away THREE $25 gift certificates each day of the Stampede, 9 winners total. 
* Exclusive prize giveaways on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, 3 winners total.

* Winners will be chosen and announced by us Monday, October 20th on the ME blog. 

Next up - it's off to the fabulous Wida Miller's blog.
