Happy Saturday!

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending a crop at Lauren Salzberg's Stamping and Scraping Group. It was wonderful to spend time with some close friends and to make a few things just for fun. Here is one of the cards that we made. Lauren designed an absolutely darling, horizontal card with the sweet little mouse from the Stampin' Up Happy Heart Day set, and I basically flip-flopped the card and asked if I could use the adorable elephant from the set instead. She was sweet enough to indulge my little burst of creativity (Thanks Lauren!) and this is what I came up with!

I have this set on order and I simply cannot wait for it to get here! Elbert (yes...I felt the need to name!) is stamped on watercolor paper with Black Stazon. I then used Stampin' Up watercolor crayons to bring him to life! When I got home, I added some Christmas Red Stickles (yes...I have another color besides Star Dust on the little hearts because after all, it is going to be Valentine's Day and you NEED sparkle on Valentine's Day...right?!?! We made the little Regal Rose scallops with the Stampin' Up Slit Punch and a hole punch. It was so nice to use the Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon too. The card that we made started off as a Regal Rose card base, but I actually cut my card front down when I got home and then adhered it to a Real Red card base. Thanks so much for inspiring me Lauren!

So glad that you could stop by...I'll be back with a little BLOG CANDY later on...Toodles! :D

I love this card. I need to pull out my set and start working with it.
