Mama Elephant October Stampede!

I'm so excited to be kicking things off for the Mama Elephant October Stampede! To celebrate their 2nd birthday, Mama Elephant is stretching the stampede into a 3-day-long affair, with different designers ready to wow you each day. All of the October products are available in the store right now.



Let's get this thing going with more Alpine Carolers, yes? I designed this set in collaboration with Kryssi and Angela and I couldn't be more excited to see what others will do with my sweet carolers!

Until you get your order in, here's my take:

mama elephant october stampede!

All of the masking makes me a happy gal.  I bunched them together to look like a family: mom, dad, brother and sister. I know I'm missing an older sister in there (and a bald hubby, ha ha) for it to look like my family, but I'll show you what you can do for that next week.

I love the ornament and stocking and other accessories that they can hold onto. The little kids are obviously flapping them around...

I also added in the "happy" die-cut and sentiment from the featured promo set. You can see the full set - click here! It isn't in the store this month, but you can snag it for free. And you should. Skinny scripts and red embossing make it perfect for the holidays.

Mama Elephant is offering some special deals this month:

♥ there will be a 10% discount code active for the duration of the 3 day stampede blog hop (HAPPY2ME)
♥ purchases over $100 will receive the HAPPY EVERYTHING stamp set free

AND, as usual there are giveaways!  Mama Elephant is giving away THREE $25 gift certificates each day of the stampede blog hop, for a total of 9 winners. In addition, there will be exclusive prize giveaways on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  The winners will be chosen and announced on the ME blog on Monday, October 20th.
