Mama Elephant Basic Borders

Hello, friends:} 

Today the Mama Elephant design team is taking a closer look at the Basic Borders stamp set. Be sure to stop by the ME blog for more details inspiration!!! 

 I created two cards using this set--the first one is very modern and def. not my style! I stepped out of my comfort zone to create this card. I used some
Basic Bazzill cardstock {available HERE from the RC}} and stamped the polka dots from the ME Basic Borders stamp set. I created an image by using a glue pen {also available HERE from the RC} and glitter. I added some Whisker Graphics twine for the leaves. Easy card! 
You could use this technique of creating an image with polka dots for Thanksgiving (using a leaf, pumpkin) or Christmas (using a tree, present, Santa hat, etc.)!! So many options:)
For my second creation, I used some kraft bitty bags from Whisker Graphics for a gift card holder. I stamped the angled image from the ME Basic Borders stamp set on the right side. I added a sentiment to a WG tag and paper pieced the penguin from the ME Polar Pals stamp set. Also very very easy!! LOVE this gift card holder. 
If you look closely, the penguin's scarf was stamped with the polka dots from the ME Basic Borders stamp set!! 
That's it for me today. Be sure to stop by all of the ME DTs' blogs and the ME blog for more inspiration and details. 



Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
