Stampers Showcase Blog Hop: Babies & Kids


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my card for this month's Stamper's Showcase Blog Hop.  This month the theme was  Babies and Kids so everyone came up with projects that represent that theme.  For my project I created a super cute card using one of my favorite  Babies & Kids stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  I loved this stamp set since it came out like I said it's one of my favorite sets and in reality it can be used for more than just babies and kids.  I am talking about the Little Elephant Stamp Set.  Here's a look at my card before we talk a little more about this stamp set.
With the Little Elephant Stamp Set you have little Elephants, tulips, balloons, and more fun sentiments and other little images to complete fun cards for any age.  I started out my card today with a piece of whisper white and I used my Stampin' Write Markers in Poppy Parade, So Saffron, and Shaded Spruce to stamp the tulips around the bottom 1/3.  I then added a 1" x 5 1/4 piece of designer series paper from the Subtles Paper Pack.   I then stamped the two elephants in Gray Granite and used the Elephant Builder Punch to punch them both out.  I popped them up on the what will be the card front using a couple dimensionals.  But before I added the small elephant I stamped the balloons from the stamp set using the Stampin' Write markers that I used before but added a Mint Macaron one also.
I then added the card front to a piece of Shaded Spruce Cardstock just slightly larger than the card base.  I then added a little Mint Macaron Textured Ribbon to the card and then popped it up on my So Saffron Card base.  I added a simple knot to the ribbon for more added interest. I stamped my Hello Little One sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White and punched it out with a 1" circle punch.  I then used the 1 1/8" scalloped circle punch to punch out a piece of so saffron cardstock. I then layered the two together with dimensionals and then popped it up on the card front with one more.
I added a piece of whisper white to the inside along with a 1/2" x 4 piece of matching designer series paper to tie everything together.  Next it was time to decorate the envelope to match the card.  I started out by using a matching piece of Mint Macaron Designer Series Paper.  I placed this on the envelope flap and cut it out.  I just added adhesive all around the flap and then added the paper, and again just cut around it.  Next I stamped a row of the elephants along the bottom of the envelope.
Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have a wonderful day hopping along.  You can click on the next bottom to go to the next blog.  You will find a full list of supplies below the next button.

 The little pigs are great on their own but the sentiments in this set are so stinking cute and funny that you will laugh every time you make a card with it and the person that gets the card will love them as well.   Sometimes when you are searching for the perfect background it's easier to make it with just a few supplies.  Which was what was done on these cards.
