Wish Big

Hello there!  I‘ve been displaced from my home for over a month now, so haven’t done too much crafting lately.  But I needed a birthday card for next month.  Unfortunately, my crafty friend will receive her card after this post.  So I took an older stamp that I’ve used only once from a company that has since closed down  (Bunch of Balloons by Wild Rose Studio) and created a clean and simple (CAS) card.

Not much to explain here.  I simply stamped the elephant image with Memento black ink in the upper left corner of an X-press It stitched rectangle panel, then coloured and created the scene around it using Copics.

The sentiment from Uniko Birthday Wishes stamp set was black heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.  Adhered the panel to a white card base then added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the balloons for some shine and dimension to finish.

 And that is all.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great day.

AAA Birthday - #10 Cute
AAA Cards - #159 One Corner + optional twist Love Those Older Supplies (twisted with old stamp)
Uniko - 8th Birthday Linky Party
Less is More - #413 More (but still CAS)

What a brilliant way to make a scene yet keep it CAS, I love this cause I hate having to colour in the whole card lol You are so bloody clever.

Aww, Trina, this is so cute! I love how you've just used one quarter of the card, and making those balloons bright rainbow colours is so striking against all the lovely white space. Love to have you playing along with us at Less is More xx
