Mama Elephant Stamp Review

I first heard about Mama Elephant from a Two Peas In A Bucket newsletter. But I wasn’t really inspired to buy anything until I saw this blog post by Kristina Werner. She made a hysterically simple card using the Good Times set. I loved it so much that I tried to recreate Kristina’s card with my own stock of stuff. My best friend and I had a great laugh over the card’s sentiment.

It was difficult deciding which sets to purchase. They’re so versatile – at one point, I had 8 sets in my basket. But I decided to pace myself and settled on four sets. My order included So Breezy, Good Times, Believe in Magic, and Smitten. The customer service and shipping were superb – I received an email just a few hours after I ordered on a Thursday morning and the stamps arrived on Monday. (The stamps came from NY and I’m in the DC region). They came packaged in a bubble wrap envelope and wrapped in some paper sealed with a Mama Elephant sticker.

I love these sets and can’t wait for more to come out. The font combinations and cleverness of the sentiments makes it really easy to create simple cards that have a unique style. The details are excellent – look at how the finger gaps are even clearly articulated!

I’ve bought many stamp sets since last September (I call them start-up costs since I just started stamping last fall) and these sentiment sets are in a class of their own. A lot of my stamps are versatile in a nondescript way – they don’t compete but also don’t add very much style to my cards. I’m not sure how to describe it but these mama elephant stamps really seem to enhance cards with their wit and humor. I can’t wait to use all of them, especially the snow globe in the Believe in Magic set!

    I just found about Mama Elephant today and had to google for some reviews. That’s why I ended up here. I’m now drooling after several stamp set and I wouldn’t mind having the full set of inks either.

      I love Mama Elephant and may now have just about every single stamp set. I tried out one of the pigment inks in a lovely dark grey and liked it a lot. Don’t know if you’ve seen it already but Jennifer McGuire has a 15% off code at Simon Says Stamp on her blog (JFAVES) and you can use the code to get a discount off a full set of ME inks.
