Have you seen the October Mama Elephant stamp previews?
If you scroll down a bit, you'll find this:
We are all so excited to bring you Alpine Carolers! It is designed in collaboration with our very own Elena Roussakis! We are so thrilled to support the artistic talents of one of our own. :) Elena really brought these sweet carolers to life. And let me tell you, they are so much fun with all their accessories! It's a blast to color! And even better, Alpine Carolers comes with a coordinating die set!
Somebody pinch me!
Do you ever set crafty goals for yourself? Stamp designing was the only one on my list for the year. And when I wrote it down, it seemed impossible. I am an amateur doodler, had no knowledge of Adobe Illustrator and absolutely no idea how to get started.
When I emailed Kryssi, it was literally just to let her know that this was something I was planning on pursuing. When she wrote back that they would be interested in working with me, I was shocked. Angela and Kryssi have been so patient and kind with me: taking a chance on my designs, helping me to make changes to the illustrations to make them better, and giving me tips as I go about learning how to illustrate my own drawings.
I hope you will all love Alpine Carolers as much as I do, and that I will have more opportunities to design for Mama Elephant in the future!
