Valentine Love with Little Elephants

It's easy to get carried away with lots of stamps, ink, punches and dies when you craft, but sometimes it's nice to go back to basics and just use stamps, ink and paper and perhaps a simple punch and tool to make life easy.  Everyone connected to Stampin' Up! is sharing #simplestamping projects to bring back everyone's mojo and also to inspire beginners who might be looking for a new craft.  Additionally sometimes the Less is More approach can have just as much impact in a project. 

Today I'm sharing a card I made at the weekend for this very purpose.  It's my #simplestamping Valentine card.  I've used the really cute Stampin' Up! set Little Elephant which is perfect for so many occasions including friendship cards, Valentines', birthdays and as you'll see below Belated Birthday cards too!

I've also used the coordinating elephant builder punch which allows you to add depth by punching the ears out separately.  The cute spray of hearts is from the same set with the sentiment from the Accented Blooms set which also has a matching punch.

As I mentioned above you can use this little elephant in different ways.  I'm behind the curve on many things at the moment as the recovery from my Achilles operation is good, but slow and a little more painful than I expected so very tiring.  Birthdays are one thing I'm late with so this card using the Little Elephant set, punch and the Make a Difference alphabet set from Stampin' Up! have helped with belated birthday wishes. 

I used markers to colour the balloons on the stamp in granny apple green, daffodil delight and real red.  A balmy blue elephant teams with the Gingham Gala designer papers from the Stampin' Up! Spring Catalogue.

That reminds me if you haven't got your copy yet please do contact me with your address details and I'll pop one in the post.

As the leg improves I'm hoping to get back to blogging more often.  Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you soon.
