This Little Elephant was at the top of my shopping list for the 2018-2019 catalog. (I know, I know, I’ve already told you that. But TRUTH.)
Stampin’ Up! has cataloged this stamp under babies and kids, but I know a lot of adults who think it’s pretty dang cute and would be happy to see it in their mailbox on their birthday.
So I made a bunch of them.
- Stamps: Little Elephant, Sunshine Sayings
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Highland Heather, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight
- Accessories: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Pearlized Doilies, Glitter Enamel Dots, Subtle Dynamic TIEF, Paper Snips, Sponge Daubers, Stampin’ Dimensionals
You didn’t think I would make them exactly alike, did you? Of course not. I had a lot of fun playing with color – this is Bermuda Bay, Gorgeous Grape, and So Saffron.
Please don’t ask me about that little black rhinestone for the eye. It’s retired, I have no idea how long ago, and I’m pretty sure it was on the Clearance Rack. It’s not there now, but when it was, I bought an “adequate” supply. (Don’t ask, don’t tell.)
The Pearlized Doilies are really easy to color with Sponge Daubers, and you get great coverage. Sponge Daubers are much firmer than Stampin’ Sponges and add a more dense layer of ink. I only colored around the edge, because that’s what shows (sort of like just ironing the front of your shirt if you’re gonna wear a jacket anyway.)
The Subtle Dynamic TIEF is working really hard for me these days – do you need one? Shop HERE.
