You Make Me Happy Card {Feeling Crafty}

Seriously, I can’t believe how long it’s been since I posted a craft project! So I decided to change that this weekend by playing along with the Fusion Card Challenge #2. Have you checked it out yet? Such a fantastic place to find inspiration… you can use the sketch or the photo or both to inspire your creation! Awesome fun!!

To create this card, I started with creating the sunburst on the card base using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Squeezed Lemonade with a foam / ink blending tool and Heidi Swapp’s Sunshine Stencil. Next, I grabbed a sheet of gray patterned paper from a 6×6 My Mind’s Eye “Breeze” paper pad. I trimmed the paper and punched borders using Fiskars “Bubble” Border Punch. I then grabbed a black piece of cardstock and white embossed the “you make me happy when skies are grey” sentiment from KaiserCraft’s Texture Stamp You. Using the Parties design card for Slice, I cut out balloons, edged them in Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Black Soot, then glued them down, forming a somewhat random, somewhat organized cluster of balloons! Then with the Signo Broad White Pen, I added faux stitching around the card and added “strings” and a bow. Ta-da!

What would you create with the photo and / or sketch below? Are you playing along with the Fusion Challenge? The color palettes and sketches are super inspiring!

    Oh wow that’s creative! The kids are staying with their Gran so I’ve got 3 days of uninterrupted scrap booking ahead of me. I was a bit stuck for ideas yesterday, but I think I’ve got my groove back!
