Happy Birthday with Mama Elephant ....

I am back with a second post for today <3 . 
If you would like to see the first one , 
please feel welcome to click here . 

For the second post I am sharing two birthday cards 
I created for some of the sweetest IG 
crafty ladies I have been blessed to meet !! 

I used the adorable Lunar Animals 
and Little Edibles stamp sets 
from Mama Elephant . 

 For the first card I heat embossed the sentiment from the Mama Elephant Surprise Sentiments stamp set . The fonts in this set are beautiful !! 
 I used Bristol Smooth cardstock for my card base since I knew I would be doing a bit of watercoloring. I started by adding the Distress Oxide Inks in the colors Worn Lipstick , Cracked Pistachio and a bit ot Wilted Violet . 
 I heat dried it , then went over the middle area again with an actual watercolor in a minty tone . 
I heat dried that layer as well . 
 I then colored up the images and assembled my card . 
 For the second card I went with the same design , with the exception of heat embossing . 
Instead I stamped the sentiment using Ranger Archival Ink .
 I began with Distress Oxide Ink in Wilted Violet .
 I did the same process as the card above . 
 Here is a look of both cards side by side . 
These were quick and fun to create !! 

Thank you so much for stopping by !! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !!
