Whiff of Joy ~

Happy Wednesday! Well, we have made it to the middle of the week! We have had such mild temperatures the last few days that it looks very much like we have a river of slush flowing down our street! I took the opportunity to attack all the semi-melted ice and snow that we had on our drive-way! An hour later and my walk and drive are free of snow and ice!

Edited  to Add:

Yup that is right 40% OFF ALL rubber in store and 15% OFF ALL digital stamps in store for 24 hours ONLY, so do not miss the celebration and SALE.


Today I have another Whiff of Joy card to show you. I was inspired by the extremely talented and super sweet Ingrid to go a little more vintage with my card. She made a card that used this stamp with a bird-cage die-cut shape and I just loved that idea. Here is Ingrid’s gorgeous card ~here~ and this is mine:

Bird with heart

The patterned paper is from Websters pages. The birdcage is from a Kerri Bradford kit (she is phenomenal) and was cut out with my Silhouette SD from some AC textured cardstock. I then used the WoJ clear text stamp and Antique linen Distress ink to stamp over on top of the cage. Then I carefully sponged around the edges. After that , I sprayed it with some Mr Huey’s White mist for a little bit of a pop. This fits in with this week’s Papertake challenge: highlighting.

I die-cut the hearts and the heart border from WoJ metal dies using my Bigshot. The key is from my stash…where it came from is anybody’s guess but it was exactly what I wanted.

The brads, twine and the gorgeous ribbon are all from WoJ too! I am loving the fact that Katharina is bringing all these high-quality embellishments into her store!

Here are some links for you:
