Today I’m going to share with you the cards that I made during my weekly Facebook live mini class. This week I used the Little Elephant bundle which is my featured product this week. But during the mini class I made two cards; one a traditional baby card and the other was a thank you card. I told you that this set could be used for more then just baby cards. Here’s a look at the cards.

Here’s a look at the stamp set if you haven’t seen it in the catalog or you’ve missed my other posts.

Images by Stampin’ Up!

This perfectly plaid filled stamp set features 15 different stamps in clear or wood mounted versions.  With that many stamps you will find the combination of imagery and sentiment for any occasion.  When someone gets a card in the mail with one of these images they will smile from ear to ear.  You just can’t help it.  I know your sitting there smiling now just looking at the cards I’ve created for today’s post.  It’s Okay smile big and proud!
