Happy Sunday and thanks for joining me the another FB Live!
Today’s FB Live features one of the cutest stamp sets in the annual catalog. It’s called Little Elephant.
Now this stamp set can be found n the Kids & Babies Section of the Annual Catalog on page 91. There are some really cute samples created with this adorable set.
What’s even more awesome about this set is that it coordinates with the most adorable punch called the Elephant Builder Punch which builds big and little elephants! Now you can buy the just the stamp set but why not buy the bundle and save!! If you purchase both you get 10% off vs. paying full price for both items individually. This set comes in both wood mount and clear mount but today I am using the clear mount!
I think this set is a great addition to your collection. The next time you are looking for the perfect card to create for a new arrival, or to celebrate kid’s bday, this set is a must have!! It’s also super versitile meaning you can dress it up, dress it down and it can be gender neutral!!
The cards we created and showcased are super simple cards to create. I did want to change it up a bit and create a different style card using the Gate Fold!
Please note that the card pictured is the one I intially created but the one created during the live is girl themed.
Now if you’ve been following me for a while, you know that everynow and then I have to shake things up a little! So this card is accomplishes just that! I created a simple Gatfold card that is embellished with a belly band…Oh my!!
Don’t worry this card isn’t as difficult as it sounds. The bake includes an extra score line and the belly band secures the card closed.
This card uses the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper that I think fits this set perfectly. This paper stack give all of the cards featured today a gentle feel. All of the colors in the paper pack coordinate nicely together. To create the belly band, I cut Night of Navy Cardstock, scored it with the measurments below, and glued it with Liquid Multipurpose Glue to hold it in place. I recommend taking the band off of the card to ensure you don’t get glue on the cardstock base from gluing everything else to it! I then attached the Coastal Cabana Starburst and Whisper White circle to the band after stamping the sentiment and balloons. Then once the elephant was stamped i adhered it to the band as well.
To add a finishing sparkley touch, I used the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins and adhered 3 to the card front.
On the inside of the card, I placed a piece of Whisper White inside to stamp a message.

Whisper White Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″

The 2nd card was a really simple A2 card that used my favorite design in the Twinkle Twinkle DSP Paper Pack.
I wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the card and tied it in a knot. I used the Circle and Stitched Framelit Dies to cut out a Night of Navy and Whisper White circle. I stamped the baby elephant onto the stitched circle and on a scrap piece used the technique in the sample catalog image the ink and sponge the “thank you” heart in the set by first stamping it in Balmy Blue Ink then taking a sponge dauber and dabbing a little Night of Navy around the edge. Then I just fussy cut it and attached it with a dimensional.
It isn’t a baby card, but its still stinkin’ cute!! It could be used as a babyshower or baby gift Thank You card!!
