Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Elephant Parade

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! Our theme this month is Winter Holidays. As it is so close to Christmas, I decided that I would focus my thoughts a bit further and do a new year card. However, I couldn’t find a happy new year greeting, so I had to think out of the box! This is what I came up with:

I used the Elephant Parade bundle and Days To Remember stamp set Once I had made this card, I did find a happy new year stamp – it is in the Brightest Glow stamp set. In my defense, I didn’t have this stamp set when I was making my card!

Below is a video that I did last year. It isn’t this card, but does show you how to position the days to get the month that you want aligned.

Be sure to complete the hop to see all the wonderful ideas that we have to share with you. The next stop is Julia Mazur – I can’t wait to see what she has created this month!
