If you are looking for a cute way to say “I’m proud of you” then look no further than Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog. I connected the Little Elephant Bundle and Friendly Expressions stamp set in a sweet and simple card. I’m excited to share it with you today. Here’s my card:
And here’s the banner for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge that inspired my card:
- Sweet Combination. I stamped the little elephant with Pool Party ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock and punched him out with the coordinating Elephant Builder Punch. So cute! I stamped him again and cropped out his ear so I could pop it up, but…it got lost on my craft table (tell me that’s never happened to you). By the time I realized it was missing, I had cleaned and put away my stamp, so…I decided to leave it off. So glad I could confess that to you. Thanks for listening. Here’s a look at the Little Elephant Bundle:The little guy is perched on a sentiment from Friendly Expressions. Here’s a look at that fun set with some great, versatile sayings:
- Lining Up for a Cute Collage. I stamped the sentiment for this card on the Highland Heather base. I also stamped it on a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock and cropped it right in the middle with a heart from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies. I glued down the heart to match up with the sentiment on the Highland Heather for a seamless sentiment:The three elements – the elephant and the two hearts – are inspired by the trio of elements on the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. What fun!
- Cheery Trio. The colors of the big heart and elephant looked so great against the Highland Heather background that I decided to build a backdrop on my card that mimicked the same colors. Part of me wishes I would have balanced out the colors a bit more, but another part of me is happy with how cheery the trio is on my card.
