Stampin’ Up! Elephant Parade & Candy Cane Dies

Hello again… have you ever put a couple of items together just ‘off the cuff’? I had these ‘pieces’ left on my desk from the Candy Cane Dies from a project some time ago: Parakeet Party pieces just resting on Starry Sky card stock. Well, they looked awesome together, so I began playing. Here’s what happened.

Stampin' Up! Elephant Parade & Candy Canes Dies

It’s colorful for sure, right? This is my first play with the elephant bundle… and I’m a bit smitten. The eyes… the smiles.. the cuteness overload. Anyway… the sentiment is stamped in White and doesn’t stand out the way I had hoped. Embossed with white would have been better. And the balloon is colored with Tahitian Tide Blends. The elephant & mouse are colored with Smoky Slate & Ivory Blends then die cut with the Elephant Dies.

I used a template made of the Candy Canes Dies (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) for placement of all the die cuts… laid it on the card front, added glue to each of the openings (one at a time of course) and placed the Parakeet Party pieces. They came from the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP. Once all were in place, I lifted my template and voila. I’m sending this to a friend of mine who has just become a first-time grandparent.

On the inside, the sentiment is stamped in Starry Sky ink and that sentiment comes from the Elephant Parade stamp set. The elephant is stamped in Smoky Slate ink and colored with same in Blends.

The envelope got a mix of Starry Sky & Parakeet Party 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP to tie it all together. The mouse was stamped in Smoky Slate and the balloon in Memento Black. Just right.
