P1050749Hi Everyone! This card was CASED by Cheralee Filion. One of the perks about being a demonstrator is the access to tens of thousands of idea starters from fellow demonstrators! I've been wanting to use the icing image on the Build a Cupcake Punch 121807 as a cloud for a long time and finally sat down and make something. The hot air ballon basket was made using an image Create a Cupcake (121915 wood mount, 121982 clear mount) and punched out using our cupcake punch liner image. To make the background clouds, punch the icing top image out of scrap. Lay down on background and with a sponge dauber, take blue ink around the edge of the 'cloud'. Lift up and repeat until your background is made. Would a video tutorial help? Let me know & I'll get one posted. Both the Cupcake Punch and Create a Cupcake are in the Occasions Mini ending this month. While I don't know for sure…I bet the punch will be a carry over item but you never know for sure!
