A Mama Elephant Haul with Stamps and Creative Cuts

The first card I made with the sets combine the sentiments from Splendid and the Creative Cuts.

I’ve resisted buying die cuts for a very long time because most of the materials I used can be easily cut using my Silhouette. As I started using thicker weight materials — especially when letterpressing — the Silhouette wasn’t able to consistently deliver a clean polished cut. My first set of steel dies from My Favorite Things – the Circle Stax set – was so awesome, I decided to double-down and purchased the Mama Elephant Creative Cuts set. I also got the Cozy Christmas set (which I’d been eyeing since last Christmas) and the Splendid and Make A Wish stamps.

This is the first card I made using the sentiments and cuts.

I adore this 3D bow. I sprayed it with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Gold. Next time, I’m thinking teal with white polka dots!IMG_0002

A close up at how well the stamp works with the resist technique. Gah – so pretty!
