I was so excited to see the Little Elephant stamp set and punch in the Stampin’ Up! catalog. I’ve been collecting elephants since I was a little girl and always get the sets that have an elephant. When I was in school I hand carved an elephant stamp – I guess that was probably my first stamping experience! I didn’t know then that I would be doing this all the time now. Here is the first thing I made with the I created with the Little Elephant stamp set and punch.
It was one of my August Stamp Club projects. We are having a lot of fun in stamp club each month. All members get to make a 3D project, a card that usually features a technique and a scrapbook page. I’ve really enjoyed getting back to making scrapbook pages.
Here is a closer look at this month’s Little Elephant box.
- Little Elephant stamp set
- Elephant Builder punch
- Lustrous White Mini Gable Boxes
- Silver & Pool Party Baker’s Twine
- Twinkle Twinkle Designer series paper
- Soft Sea Foam ink
- Gray Granite ink
- Whisper White card stock
The little flowers are stamped around the base of the box in the Soft Sea Foam ink. Use the Elephant Builder punch to punch strips of the Twinkle Twinkle Designer paper – the big and little ears are what I used for the flowers. Glue them to the box on top of the stamped flowers. Use a piece of the Designer Series Paper and wrap it around the box – but don’t glue it – just tie the twine around it – that way you can untie the twine and remove the wrap to open the box.
It’s perfect little gift for a new baby – you could roll up a little onsies or some socks to stick inside!
