Using the Ariste "Happy Birthday" key for the challenge
(see Monday's post)
helped me to really look at the options.
I decided to make some mini cut-outs for cards.
and balloons also included on happy birthday key...
I cut the clouds using Artiste and then used them as a spray mask.
Lagoon re-inker + water in our spray pen makes a great mist!
I recently won some blog candy from two of my blog friends so I used some on these cards.
The papers, washi tape, and Baker's Twine are from
Erica at Erica Rose Creates.
The burlap twine and wood veneers are from my friend Jody at
It was really fun to get some happy mail mid-spring break!
Thanks to these two crafty ladies.
The card base was also cut using the Artiste cartridge.
