My style is simple. Usually. But when I saw the Friday Mashup Challenge for 3-D Paper Piecing, my interest was piqued and this little elephant from the You’re Amazing stamp set came to mind:
I did my paper piecing a little different as I didn’t have the 3-d glue suggested in the tutorial video, so I cut out the largest whole elephant image (including hat), then layered it on my base with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue, next cut out the elephant head/trunk/hat and adhered that, and finally, the party hat! Other than that, I followed the tutorial substituting the tools I had from Stampin’ Up!
It’s fussy, detail-oriented work, but I loved the result! You can watch Mariska’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.
Combining the Friday Mashup 3-D and color challenge with the sketch from Create with Connie & Mary, here is the finished card:
I’ve also challenged my Stampin’ Family to “Go for the GOLD” so you may notice the gold sequins that add a little bling to the whole thing as an homage to the US Olympic Team 🙂

You have created a great card with the elephant image and the banners. What a great combination! Thanks for playing Create with Connie & Mary this week!
This is fantastic!! I love how you used this stamp set! And the paper piecing technique on the elephant looks so great! Really gives him dimension! Love this!! Thanks for playing the Saturday challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!
What a wonderful card! That elephant looks great with this technique – good choice 🙂 I love the 'ticket' banner and the sequins are a great touch. Thanks for sharing with us this week at The Friday Mashup!
Wow! You did a great job with the paper piecing, Loni! Your card is so cute…and awesome, just like it says. 🙂 Thanks for playing with us at the Friday Mashup.
Loni, absolutely a fantastic card! I love that stamp set but struggle with it- thanks for inspiration to do the paper piecing with it. All of your details are amazing- the tickets hung with sequins, the amazing behind the image, the multiple layers, and boy you rocked the colors on this card, too! Thanks for playing with the Friday Mashup this week!
Lori, I LOVE your card! I bought this set and never used it. Your card is very inspirational! The colors, paper piercing and details are fabulous! Congratulations on winning the FMU! You certainly earned it!
