I keep running out of baby thank you for little Asher man, so decided to use this weeks Card Patterns sketch as inspiration to whip up a batch. I really wanted to call this post, "Thanks...I Think" but wasn't sure if anyone would get my funny! Thought this little elephant was so cute stamped in Craft Chocolate Chip and embossed with Clear embossing powder...so I decided to give him a little tag along buddy, to hold onto his tail but well ya know, not sure if it looks like that...or that he's poking him in the bum, there I said it! Eeek! Dare I?? I'm seriously laughing out loud writing this, so I hope you'll find it a bit humorous as well. Elephant #2 is stamped in Marina Mist.
I ran a strip of Very Vanilla through the Big Shot in the SU! Square Lattice Impressions Folder, dabbing a bit of Marina Mist ink around the edges with a sponge. My little elephants looked like they needed a snazzy little place to stand, so a piece of Sticky Strip, sprinkled with Stampin' Glitter in Baja Breeze and viola, a shiny little road! My first attempt at working with Seam Binding, so fun! I stamped my sentiment from the Hostess level 1 stamp set Afterthoughts (found in the front of the 2010/2011 Idea Book & Catalog) directly onto the bumpy cardstock and quite like the crackled effect it presents us with.
