Fun Elephant Occasion Card with Technique Junkies

Hello Dreamers,
Here today with a fun occasion card made with Technique Junkies May New Release stamps!   Look out!  Here come the elephants!  Check out this fun new stamp from TJ!  I thought this new sentiments really worked well with the elephants!  LOL.  Very fun!

Materials List:
Stamps: Mama and Baby and Behave Yourself (sentiment) both from Techniques Junkies
Technique Junkies Technique CD--Fancy Folds and Motion --- Circle Tab Card Technique
Ink: Onyx Black Versa Fine
CS: Solar White Neenah,Tip Top Taupe ( Stampin' Up)
Circle Paper Punches
Animal Print Ribbon

Make It:

  • Make the card base from Tip Top Taupe CS
  • Follow the "Circle Tab Card" instructions to make the rest of the card.  
Note: My punches had a hard time going through two layers of CS.  You may want to punch the two layers separately making sure they line up.  Or, use a lighter weight paper to stamp on.
  • Stamp the Elephants on white CS with Versa Mark.  This is a very detailed stamp and after experimenting, I found the Versa Mark worked the best.  I also used the Neenah CS because the smooth surface worked great with this stamp.

  • Stamp the sentiment on white CS and punch out
  • Add to a larger punched circle
  • Add pearls and Animal Print ribbon
  • On the inside, add an interesting coordinating Decorative Paper 

Quite a fun combo of stamps, I think.  Would be cute for teenagers.....

Later in the month I will share more of the Technique Junkies projects and some more birthday cards.  Thanks for stopping by today.  See you soon.  Love ya
