Ellie Elephant

I discovered High Hopes Stamps a couple months ago and had to order some of their adorable images. Meet Ellie Elephant. She was the special last month. They have a special every month, but the stamps are still available. You just get a discount when they are the special. High Hopes Stamps is in Canada, but shipping was very reasonable and Tina (the owner) is a sweetheart to deal with! I got my stamps as just the rubber so I could use my current mounting system for unmounted stamps (Alene's Tack it Over and Over).

I did a lot of masking with my images. I stamped the single peanut and the peanut bag. Then, I masked them and stamped Ellie. Then, I cut my image out and put it on the vanilla cardstock. I distressed the edges of my cardstock and patterned papers using an edge distressor and then sewed the layers together. I made holes in my image panel to thread my twill through and then assembled the layers. Last, I added buttons and flowers with dew drops in their centers.




I received thie Kreativ Award from Adela Rossol. Thank you so much Adela! You are so sweet!

Have a great day!
