I continue sharing wiper cards. This time I have a set of four 4-bar cards featuring Mama Elephant “Whale Wishes” stamps set. This maybe is my first Mama Elephant stamp set. Some years ago, there were not many Spanish retailers selling Mama Elephant products, so, for me, they were hard to find. In 2016 I went on vacation to Korea, and I found a little shop selling Mama Elephant products, and I couldn’t help to get these whales.


I made a very simple front panel since I wanted the surprise on the inside of the card to be the star of the show. I blended some Distress Inks on purple and pink tones on a piece of Bristol paper and sprayed a mixture of water with perfect pearls. This gives a very beautiful pearlescent look to the background. I used a scalloped die to make a window on a white cardstock panel, and, to make the sea, I embossed the wave image on white on a previously inked piece of cardstock. I love this wave image, it’s so elegant!! Last, I added the jumping orca.


This card design is more simple than the one I used on my other wiper cards since the only have a single wiper element―the whale which peeks from the wavy border. I added two more whales and a pair of clouds to balance the scene.


I’m very happy to tell you that I have made a tutorial on the assembly of the wiper mechanism! It took me ages because I had to find the proper setup to film the process, and then, as it was my first time, I record the same process for three of the four cards. I had to learn how to edit the video. Luckily, my husband helped me A LOT during the process.

I hope you enjoy the video!

Although these cards are quite simple, I think they are the perfect gift for someone because the sentiments in this stamp set are perfect for any occasion. I hope you like this project!

Thank you very much for stopping by!
