Mama Elephant~Make a WishI used the new Make a Wish stamp set on my project. My card base is made from watercolor paper. After making some loose watercolor brushstrokes, I simply stamped the sentiment in black. I am head over heels in love with these hand lettered sentiments. Did you read about the artist, Paulina, who designed them for Mama Elephant? She is amazing!

  7. Ya know, it just doesn’t get any more perfect than that. Of course, a great sentiment like that makes cards look good, but your rainbow makes it perfect.

  8. Oh, how I love this look! The watercolor is perfect and the bold black fabulous handwritten stamped sentiment is a perfect match!

  9. Fantabulous!! I also totally LOVED the cards and wonderful ideas you shared in this week’s Card Class as one of the Guest Designers…your videos are also so interesting and you are so much fun and are always so full of life and happy things….thanks girl!!!

  10. Your watercoloring is the perfect background for this sentiment, Laura! I love the soft colors with this gorgeous font and the texture of the paper is fabulous, too!
    I did read Paulina’s article, and really enjoyed it! I can’t imagine being able to write like this…wow!

  11. I love anything watercolour and add in rainbows and I’m in heaven. Love your card, these new big font stamp are beautiful, cant wait for release.

  12. Laura, love this usage of the stamp. I want to thank you for making me aware of Paulina and her blog. I went to have a look and she had a link to an online store for calligraphers. I have recently been learning calligraphy and I was looking for a particular book which I could not find anywhere at a reasonable price (including postage) and there it was!!! So your happy card has made me happy in many ways! Thanks! 🙂

  13. Great minds think alike – this card is similar to Donna’s but they are both unique. I love the watercolour behind the sentiment. Looks fab!

  14. Hi Laura!
    BEAUTIFUL Card! I love the gorgeous colors and CAS design of your card! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  15. Love your bold, bright card – the black stamping looks great over the water colors.

  16. This stamp set it amazing! I love how you used it too. I like that the whole card is watercolor paper, the texture is cool.

  17. I love this bod and elegant typeface for a basic sentiment I’ll use over and over. Love the easy and cheerful watercolored background!

  18. Love your rainbow cards. I’m really liking cards where the sentiment is the focal point. Thanks for showing us how to do it fabulously!

  19. So, inquiring minds want to know… did you get such amazing definition with your sentiment on watercolor paper? Just love this.

  20. Again I look forward to you blog post. I fell in love with mama elephant after seeing your designs.

  21. I love your cards. I just have a quick question. I tried using the same watercolor set you have, but I get a chalky feel and the color rubs off on my fingers, do you find this as well?

    Thanks for your help!!!
