Cathy Caines here on the blog today playing with the Stampin’ Up!  Little Elephant stamp set and coordinating punch.

Call me crazy but I love a cute punch.
Punches are easy.
I don’t have to move much.
Its fast.
And it’s effective.Card designed by Cathy Caines featuring the Stampin' Up! Little Elephant and punch set | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine
So when a stamp set and a punch as cute as this gets released from Stampin’ Up!, it’s first on my list.
Here I am introducing…. the Little Elephant Bundle.
#socuteLittle Elephant Stamp and Punch by Stampin' Up! | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineThis cutie was sitting in my craft room for almost a month before I took the plastic off. It was about time to get this stamp set dirty!
When I first approached these projects using the Little Elephant stamp set and punch, I started with the stacking technique. It seems to be the thing to do with little critters and animals these days. And I can understand why… it’s easy and of course, ridiculously adorable.
A quick hint is to try stamping off the ink on this elephant stamp, in order to see the patterns on the solid image.Card designed by Cathy Caines featuring the Stampin' Up! Little Elephant and punch set | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Right away this stamp set screams “baby”!
And it sure does the job quite well.
But you can use this for other occasions like a birthday as well as a thank you card.Card designed by Cathy Caines featuring the Stampin' Up! Little Elephant and punch set | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine On my last project with this stamp set, I chose to create a watercolour background with Pacific Point Refill Ink and an aqua painter or water brush. It’s a simple technique and it’s a great way to ground your images.  Try it!!Card designed by Cathy Caines featuring the Stampin' Up!

I love how the Elephant punch has both sizes of the elephant.Card designed by Cathy Caines featuring the Stampin' Up!
