Welcome to the Mama Elephant March Stampede Blog Hop!
This month's release is all about birthday-themed stamps and dies. I'm sharing a rainbow stenciled background card today featuring the brand new Sweet Feline Creative Cuts Dies, Sentiment Strips Creative Cuts Dies, Big Happy Birthday Creative Cuts Die, and Birthday Messages Stamp Set. I also used the previously released Inside Pop Bunny and Cat dies to build a body for the cat!

Watch the creation of this rainbow stenciled background big happy birthday messages card from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
I die cut the background panel from smooth white cardstock using a Sweet Feline Creative Cuts die. The scalloped edges of the panel were masked off and then the middle of the panel was stenciled with a rainbow of Distress Inks using the MFT Drifts and Hills Stencil.
The Big Happy Birthday Creative Cuts Die was die cut from smooth white cardstock three times and glued one on top of another for a more substantial sentiment.
The Sweet Feline head was die cut from Simon Says Stamp Smoke Cardstock, Hero Hues Peony Cardstock, and Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Cardstock. The body, paws, and tail for the cat were die cut from Simon Says Stamp Smoke Cardstock using the Inside Pop Bunny and Cat Creative Cuts dies.
The cat was assembled to appear to be hanging over the edge of the "Happy Birthday" die cut greeting and then adhered to the card background as shown. Detail was added to the eyes with a white gel pen and Glossy Accents was used to finish the eyes and nose.
Sentiments from the Birthday Messages Stamp Set were stamped on Simon Says Stamp Lavender and Hero Hues Paradise cardstocks using clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The phrases were die cut with a Sweet Feline strip die and a Sentiment Strips die before being adhered with foam adhesive.
The "Happy Birthday" greeting was finished with a rainbow of Nuvo Crystal Drops.
The panel was adhered to a white top fold card base to complete the design.
