There are just a few elements at play in this Happy card. The Balloon Die set from Richard Garay has a wonderful selection of five different sized balloons. The largest balloon is approx. 3" tall and the smallest approx. 3/4" tall. The Happy Die cut has come from the Hero Arts Stamp and Cut set. I love the mixed fonts in this set. This is also where the small "birthday" stamp came from. 

The splatters shown in the card sample is done with the new Distress Oxide inks mixed with some water. The balloon strings were made with a Micron Pigment pen at a .005 nib size. The balloon dies would be a great way to use up your leftover card scraps. The colour combinations are endless.

Time for Tea

The card has been designed using the tea pot set from Joy Crafts. As an added dimension the die cuts have been embossed to invoke a Victorian feel. Although the background is hard to see, we have used Pearl embossing powder and a Swirl Lace background stamp from Impression Obsession. The background panel was cut into three pieces and affixed to a brown cardstock layer. 

The Tea Party Dies from First Edition is a set of ten pieces including a two tiered dessert stand as well as cupcakes, a slice of cake and a sweet little pennant border which you are not seeing in the photograph. A cup of tea is a perfect way to end your day!
