I love the Mama Elephant Toy Shop stamp set because you can build any toy scene to your desire! Have a look at all of the possibilities.

"You Made The Nice List" gift tag: I created a gift tag by stacking the Toy Shop images together. I used Copics to color the roof and trimmings, added some sparkle with Stickles, and wrote the sweet little boy's name in the window. I then layered the image on top of the brown tag and tied a red satin ribbon to finish the tag off.



"Happy Birthday" boy card: For my next card, I stacked all of the fun toys along with the sentiment "happy birthday" simply on a white strip. I then stitched the strip to a dark grey card stock, perfect for any birthday boy.



"Happy Birthday" girl card: For my last card, I stacked more of the fun toys, sweet cupcakes, and lollipops on a kraft cardstock base. I then stacked the sentiment 'happy birthday" in sweet pinks and purple on a white banner. I then added pink rhinestones to finish the simple girly card.
