Good morning everyone! I’m over at Mama Elephant‘s blog today and I’ve got a card to share with you using the May release Basic Rectangles creative cuts.

May to September is basically “wedding season” here in Vancouver, so I’ve got a simple wedding card to share with you today!

First, I blended a few colours onto my card base. Since the wedding invitations had pink bits here and there, I decided to incorporate their wedding’s colour scheme into the card. I did some colour blocking using dark pink, light pink and a little bit of gold. I then die cut the window in the middle using Basic Rectangles creative cuts.

I whipped out the perfect stamp set for weddings – Oh Happy Birds stamp set. I stamped out the flower wreaths, the two little birdies and the bell and coloured them in.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment “Oh Happy Day” from the same stamp set. This sentiment would appear in the window from the card front.

I stamped “To The Cutest Couple” onto the front of the card and prepared to adhere all the little bits and pieces onto the card front.

And here you go! The complete wedding card that left our house a few weeks ago! I created a kraft envelope and stamped out the flowers from Pretty Peonies and added some white and gold specks to the envelope.

You can see the sentiment peaking out from inside the card!

Welcome to our last stamp highlight and if you love big calligraphy, this is the stamp set for you! For May, Mama Elephant released another large sentiment stamp set called Oh Happy Day and it totally fills up the card front!

I wanted something happy and blended a rainbow for the card front. I just stamped the sentiment right on top of the card and was about to call it finished… but it felt so bare and was missing something.

So I took the smaller sentiments and stamped a few of them onto some strips of cardstock and adhered it with foam tape diagonally to give it that little pop of white against that background.

Hope you enjoyed the stamp highlights for May!

Happy Monday! I hope you’re excited for the last 2 stamp highlights for Mama Elephant’s May release! Today we’ll be looking at Animal Parade and its coordinating creative cuts. This is such a happy stamp set and I love all the little critters in there!

For my background, I cut out various circles and blended ink onto the card base to create the look of bubbles. I wanted this card to be bubbly and happy!

I lined up all the critters starting from the tallest one, the bear, to the penguin. This would be such a perfect birthday card for a little child!

Hello and welcome back to the next stamp highlight! Today, we’ll be looking at Mama Elephant‘s newly released stamp set called She’s So Lovely and its coordinating creative cuts.

I did some colour blocking on the card base itself with pink and blue, and stitched in a vellum polaroid frame that was die cut with Polaroid Fun creative cuts. The flags are also from the same die cut set and I stitched them onto the card as well.

I finished the card off with a simple sentiment from Occasional Labels.

Good morning everyone! Hope you enjoyed the stampede showcasing Mama Elephant’s May release! Today, we’re taking a closer look at Donut Treats and its coordinating creative cuts. I love that little slit in the donut box so you can slip all your donuts in there!

For my card base, I first blended some pink, blue and yellow and ran it through my cutter with Pegworks die cut to get all those little holes. It’s such a simple yet amazing background!

I coloured in my donuts and gave them little faces. Have you seen those adorable animal donuts from Japan? That’s what I wanted to recreate here!
