Trish Latimer used the Cardmaking Paradise Elephant template to create this fabulous assemblage! The template is available free to all readers, just check out the 3D challenge feature in the March 2017 issue of the magazine to find out how to get your hands on a copy!
When I saw the fabulous elephant shape, I immediately thought of vintage toys (as you do!) I decided to use the template to create a pull along toy, and added a quirky feel to the assemblage with the addition of a fairy sitting on top. The elephant itself is created from three layers of patterned paper. As the ear is a 3D element that can be seen on both sides, I wanted to make sure anyone looking didn’t see the white side of the paper. This meant that I glued two sheets back to back to form a double sided patterned piece. The third sheet of paper was glued behind the aperture created when the ear was cut out, so everything looks the same. Book pages glued to the chipboard circles (pretend wheels) and the wooden block gave an immediate vintage look, and I then added some colour with smeared paint. My fairy is a cut out from a vintage image, with some book paper wings and a crown. I hope she is sitting comfortably!

Craft Stamper Printables!
We are thrilled to be launching our brand new printables series this month. Each month, Craft Stamper will be sharing one (or sometimes 2!) totally free sheets of elements, all ready for you to print off and use in your art.
We’ll have a mixture of images, backgrounds, sentiments and templates for you to play with, all created by the Craft Stamper team. Have a great idea for a printable element? Let us know and we’ll see what we can do!
This month, we have ready to print versions of our exclusive autumnal images, a selection of sentiments and a really useful ATCoin back for you to use. We also have some stunning textural pics, images photographed by our own Jaine! We have small sizes that fit perfectly onto an ATCoin, and as our bonus sheet this month, the pics have been scaled up for larger projects!
We can’t wait to see what you all create using our printables, so feel free to share on our facebook page, or email our team a picture at: editor.cs@mytimemedia/com. We’d love to take a peek!
