Cupcakes and Elephants

I've been busy creating lately and now I'm ready to share a few cards with you! I've been playing around with my new copics and I'm already in love with them. I'm so sad that I didn't get them sooner, but at least I have my new obsession now!

This cute birthday card was created using Mama Elephant's Carnival Cupcakes and Cupcake Toppers with coordinating dies. The background is a watercolor wash using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

This sweet little elephant image is from WPlus9's Unforgettable set. I just love elephants and the images in this set are just adorable! The background was sponged using a stencil that I created with a piece of paper and a die. I moved my makeshift stencil around the paper to sponge in the clouds. I cut off the stamped tail of the balloon and attached a piece of crochet thread instead. I just love how this turned out!

I CASE'd this card from one of the featured cards on WPlus9's February release post. I just loved the simple style and the spotlight cut for the elephant! Plus, I always seem to need belated birthday cards, so this was perfect for my stash! (The inside has a beautiful birthday sentiment, but I didn't take a picture and I've actually already sent it out! Yes, I am that bad...)

This card was actually just a happy accident. I stamped the images onto a panel just to practice using my markers, but I liked how it turned out, so I trimmed the sides and added it to a Pool Party card base. The stamps are from Ella and Friends by Mama Elephant.
