Happy Elephant


This is going to be one of the make-n-takes at Stampo at my house Friday night. I got the idea for the greeting with the large eyelet in the middle from fatcatstamper's blog. I love the look of this! It really dresses up the card and what a fun way to do a greeting! The greeting set is called Circle of Friends. The elephant is from Happy Heart day and the paper is the new Western Sky paper. The elephant is stamped on Confetti white cardstock and stamped again on the Soft Sky designer paper. Then the polka dot elephant is cut out and adhered over the first image. Easy paper piecing but so effective. See this post for directions on paper piecing.

Stampo is this Friday at my house at 7:00. We are having a Valentine's/Chocoholic themed Stampo with a chocolate fountain and treats to dip in it. Stampo is an easy dice game played like Bunko. If you are in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota and want a really fun girls night out contact me at krhopperstad@juno.com for more information.

Kathleen, I wished I could come to your Stampo but since I can't, I may just have to "case" this as well! It is too cute for words.
