Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Hooray Wishes

With so many of us staying at home and staying safe, our handmade cards is extra meaningful to to share our excitement for birthdays, graduations, milestones…whatever it may be! Mama Elephant released the perfect set to cover all these wonderful moments in life called Hooray Wishes!

This set comes with this adorable illustration of an excited group of friends along with several smaller images to change up this celebratory scene for graduation, birthday, or just a general celebration! It also comes with this large ‘hooray’ stamp (or die if you get the coordinating dies), paired with several follow-up sentiments for all sorts of occasions. I am always in need of more birthday cards, so that’s what I picked out for this card!

Can you believe I didn’t do any ink blending on this card today? Haha! The background here was created with the Quick Strips Creative Cuts. I love this die and highly recommend everyone to add this to your stash no matter what style you are! There are four different strip sizes and each die cuts six strips. I was able to die cut quick, even strip of card stock super fast and assemble this fun background together.

I used the Hooray Wishes Creative Cuts to die cut the large ‘hooray’ word out of white card stock three times and layered them together for dimension. I then heat embossed the sentiment ‘three cheers for the birthday girl!’ in white onto gray card stock and die cut the strip using the Sweet Feline Creative Cuts. I added this just below the large ‘hooray’ and added a few clear sequins to embellish the card.

I splattered on some watercolors onto the white areas to give it a speckled birthday cake confetti look! Its subtle while adding a fun look for this birthday card. Hope you enjoy today’s inspiration and see you around next time!
