Stampede | September 2019

Welcome to a very special Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop! We are celebrating 7 years this month with a fantastic new holiday release along with our amazing friends!

Here is the promotional flyer for this year’s celebration. We’ve added an extra freebie tier this time around!

You can shop the newest release which is LIVE in our store now!

For my stampede project, I simply knew I had to use the adorable Little Penguin Agenda and Mini Merry Messages.  
Having colored a whole bunch of penguins as soon as I got them, I picked out a few of them, even though it’s hard to pick!

As you know, I LOVE tags, so I pulled out my Union Square dies and cut four tags with the flap too from Neenah Cardstock, and four of just the tag from grey cardstock.

On the Neenah tags with the flap, I masked off the border at the stitched lines. Then for each tag I stamped a few of the trees, masked off a little snowy hill, stamped more trees, masking off as needed, and finally the mountains, all from the Me and My Yeti stamp set. 

If you want to be more “factually correct”, you could leave out the trees and maybe do more snow, gifts, mountains, rocks etc to create your scene instead, since there are no trees where the penguins live.

Then I stamped a sentiment from the Mini Merry Messages in the sky and colored in the little scene. You can see which colors I used in the color map below.

Then I glued the grey tag to the back and added my penguins with a small foam square.

  1. You don’t need to be factually correct–your tags are sweet just the way you made them. L❤VE❣❣❣ WHO doesn’t love sweet little penguins? Love the way you added a different element to each one–especially the one roasting marshmallows❣ Great job.


  2. Such adorable tags.They are super cute and so different from other Christmas tags. I Iove how you’ve clearly detailed the marker colours you used. Thank’s for that.


  3. Your recipients will be so lucky to receive one of these adorable tags. My daughter wants this set so she can do the same thing.


  4. These are adorable!!! And who cares about being “factually” correct when making something this cute! I love the little penguin with the toasted marshmallow!
