Whiff of Joy - Magical Wishes

Yet another clean and simple card.  I used a card map from Card Positioning Systems blog and pulled out my Creative Memories wavy trimmer (not sure of it's proper name) to cut out the blue "waves".

The balance of this card is made up of Spellbinders Circles Small with Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles and Whiff of Joy - Magical Wishes for the sentiment.

I will try to post some cards for the next 2 weeks but I will be away helping move animals (lions, tigers, jaguars, leopards, pumas etc - 45 of them) from one animal sanctuary to their beautiful new one about a 2 hour drive away.  Not going to have too much time to create !  Be back around the end of the month.

Marianne D - Cupcake

This is a clean and simple card cased from Kristina Werner's blog.  I used the following supplies :

Spellbinders Petite Scallop Circles
Spellbinders Circles
Marianne D - Cupcake die
MFT - First Place Award Ribbon stamped with sentiment from Hero Arts Find Joy stamp set

The pink gingham paper is from my stash and it has been edged with Victorian Velvet Distress ink.

Hero Arts - Balloon Ride

On this card I used paper from the DCWV Stack 7 pad and stamped it with a large Hero Arts Newspaper Background in Archival Sepia.

The balloons are also a Hero Arts image called Balloon Ride.  The sentiment has been punched out with a Stampin Up oval punch - not sure where the sentiment came from.  Think I had it in my stash and forgot to put it's origin on the back.

Hero Arts - Thank You Messages

I saw a similar idea for this card whilst trawling through the various craft blogs and, seeing I did not have a suitable tree image, I decided to do one free hand.  If nothing else, my art lessons are giving me the confidence to try something new !

The left hand side of the card was sponged with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink with the right hand side being Spiced Marmalade.  For the tree I used the Stampin Up Basic Black marker.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts set called Thank You Messages.
