Hello all! It’s AJ today and we’re still blog hopping with Art Impressions Stamps!
For my card today, I am using the Dream Big set. This adorable elephant was colored with my new Chameleon Markers (which I am still learning) I kept the overall design a bit simpler to focus on the image.
To adhere my strips, I use the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable. I love how when you have a thin strips like I am using, you can just turn it sideways and add a single strip, or however many fit. (*I used the brown card stock so it would show better. 😉
To adhere my colored image, I use Crafty Foam Tape. It’s my go to for lift! 🙂

Yes, I love to make a few personal holiday gifts every year. Last year it was mason jar cookies with dry ingredients in the jar, pretty fabric and ribbon on the top and the tag had the recipe on the back. So pretty and fun to give!
