You’re Amazing: The happy birthday elephant set

Have you seen this little elephant peeking out at you yet from the You’re Amazing stamp set (see it online)?

He’s my favorite image from the 2012-2013 Stampin’ Up! catalog.  Last year there was a fun elephant in a hostess-exclusive set, so I’m excited that EVERYONE can get this guy!

And really, what’s more fun than an elephant in a party hat?

The elephant paper is from the World Spectacular Designer Series Paper (see it online) and it’s my new favorite DSP.  There are 12 matching patterns in the paper series, and I love every one of them!

Time for confessions… do you find yourself hoarding Designer Series Paper?  Are you afraid to cut into a sheet for fear of needing it more at a later date?  I totally used to be that way, too. 

Here’s my challenge for you… re-create this card, and use ANY DSP you have on hand — just try it.  Match your card stock colors to the DSP you choose, but copy the design.  Add a greeting (it doesn’t even have to be birthday — maybe try a Christmas card!), then leave me a comment.  You can even send me a picture!

Go on —  you know you want to try it.  It’s a simple card layout, and you’ll love the results AND start to get over your fear of cutting into a piece of DSP 🙂

Here are the card dimensions you’ll need:

  • Card Base (Whisper White): 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
  • Card Front (Island Indigo): 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Scallop Border Strip (Daffodil Delight): 1″ x 5 1/4″, punched
  • Designer Series Paper (World Spectacular DSP): 2″ x 5 1/4″
  • Banner (Whisper White): 1 1/2″ x 4″, trimmed

While you’re at it with your Designer Series Paper, here are a whole lot MORE ideas from my blog on how to put your DSP to work!

Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Happy Stamping!
