Stampin' Up Elephant Parade Happy Day For Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Friday Eve everyone and welcome to another week with the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Krew!  This week the Krew was given a sketch and I decided to use Stampin' Up Elephant Parade Bundle.  I know that you have to be as excited as I am to see what everyone has created!  

Here is the sketch we were given:
The card front is a panel of Stampin' Up Butterfly Kisses DSP adhered to a panel of Night of Navy.   I adhered a smaller panel of DSP to a smaller panel of Night of Navy and attached it to the larger panel with Stampin' Dimensionals.  
I stamped an elephant from Stampin' Up Elephant Parade Stamp Set using Mementos Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Basic White card stock.  I colored the image with Stampin' Blends: Gray Granite and Petal Pink.   I die cut the image with Stampin' Up Elephant Dies.
I used Stampin' Up Double Oval Punch to punch a piece of Night of Navy.  I adhered the scalloped oval to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I adhered the elephant die cut to the card front with liquid adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I die cut a piece of Parakeet Parade card stock with grass dies from Elephant Dies.  I stamped the sentiment with Night of Navy on a strip of Basic White card stock.  I flagged the end.  I adhered the strip to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I adhered the grass under the strip with liquid adhesive.  

I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base.

The inside is a panel of Basic White with a strip of DSP adhered at the bottom.

Dimensions and supplies are listed at the bottom of post.

I hope you enjoyed todays card and are ready to hop along to Terry Lynn.
