Here's another peek at my card:

I used Technique Tuesday's Little Peanut set.  After stamping it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I is colored with my Spectrum Noir markers; the elephant is fussy cut and popped up on dimensional dots (as is the whole panel).  I added a little bit of lace tape, and pinned the banner die on with three mini clothespins.  For a teensy bit of extra fun, I fussy cut the larger ear a third time, and glued down the portion closest to the ellie only. Then I popped the bottom portion up a bit. It's all tied together with Carta Bella's Alphabet Junction.

Our designers are sharing lots of inspiration using Technique Tuesday stamps and ihp products!
