Little Elephant Box

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.

Supply List

  • 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!

Perennial Birthday Window Box

I’m back with another project using the Perennial Birthday stamp set.  Apparently I’m not good at spelling the word Perennial – I have to look it up every time.  So now I’ve added a book mark to my catalog for this week.  This project is one I actually made earlier this year when this set came out in the Occasions Catalog.  It’s still one of my favorite little boxes.

All the supplies are still available in our catalog except for the Dapper Denim card stock and ink that I used.  But this could easily be changed to Night of Navy or even the new Blueberry Bushel.  I water colored with an Aqua Painter to decorate the box and took my color combination from the kit box that the stamp set coordinated with.

Supply List

  • Perennial Birthday
  • Window Box Thinlits
  • Dapper Denim card stock (substitute a current blue if you don’t have this one)
  • StazOn Jet Black Ink
  • Calypso Coral ink
  • Dapper Denim ink (substitute a current blue if you don’t have this one)
  • Old Olive ink
  • Shimmery White card stock
  • Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker
  • Gold Metallic Thread
  • Gold Faceted Gems
  • Big Shot Die Cutting Machine

Fill this pretty box with yummy treats and give it to someone special – maybe gift it to a brand new recruit.  Did you see the amazing special for new recruits?  A free collection of brand new ink pads for everyone that joins in July.  You can join my team and then join me in November at the OnStage Live event in Orlando – it is going to be amazing!
