Just for fun and to give you more details on how I created this card, here is a start-to-finish video for you to watch! Hope you enjoy it!

Oh, and while I had the stamps out, I created another #spreadjoynotgerms card:

  6. Hi Sanna 🙂 Your cards are delightful!!! I love to spread joy by Smiling-just like your card says! In fact I was nicknamed Smiley in high school! I love the color palette on your Happy Thoughts card! Thanks for inspiring me 🙂

  7. Stunning cards Sanna. I love this beautiful technique and the gorgeous bright colours you’ve used. It brings joy. My favourite way of spreading joy is to give. Give a card, some cookies or just lend a hand anywhere and anytime. Thanks for sharing.

  8. My favorite way of spreading joy is to bake desserts, especially macarons. However, it’s hard to deliver sweets in Minnesota, USA right now, so I’m substituting with cards for now. Thank you for participating in this excellent way to encourage stay-at-home!

  9. My favorite way of spreading joy is to bake desserts, especially French macarons. However, it’s hard to deliver sweets in Minnesota, USA right now, so I’m substituting with cards decorated with deserts for now. Thank you for participating in this excellent way to encourage stay-at-home!

  10. Beautiful colorful card. I like to spread joy with cards, small goodies (snacks) and different small crafts that I make.

  11. O what beautiful happy cards!
    At the moment I spread joy by posting positive pics and making masks for those who need them. And I make cards which I will give when I can visit my friends again.
    Thanks for the hop!

  12. Oh what happy beautiful cards!!
    Thanks for the hop!

  13. Great cards!! The first one is my favorite it’s so bright and happy! I try to spread joy by sending cards to random friends to brighten their day!

  14. Absolutely stunning, beautifully coloured and designed.

  15. Gorgeous cards and lovely backgrounds! I have been donating cards to hospices & nursing home in hopes of spreading joy.

  16. Love your use of bright happy colours, Sanna! Thanks for sharing and your video! Stay safe! 🙂

  17. Yummy gorgeous cards and fabulous bright colors to cheer someone up!! #spreadjoynotgerms

  18. Beautiful card! I don’t have any powders but after seeing your stunning results I need to add them to my wishlist. Thank you for sharing.

  19. Love your creations they are beautiful. I enjoyed you video. Thanks for participating in this wonderful blog hop.

  20. I think Sherry will be very proud of what you created with her products. The lucky receiver of the card will love it! Great job!

  21. Beautiful cards, enjoyed the video. The shimmer powder looks like fun, those are going on my wish list.

  22. And the magic really does happen! Wow! I love both your cards & the music you chose in the background of your video too. What a great idea to take what is leftover & put colour on another piece of cardstock & then cut the sentiment & die from it. You also mentioned using the paper towel in your journal. Nothing goes to waste. How good is that! Would you put it in with Modge Podge or something else? Thanks for the joy & inspiration. My favourite way of spreading joy is to make eye contact with people on the street (when it’s permissible to be out again) & smile at them & to try to say something complimentary or encouraging to each working person I deal with be it in person or by phone. One unsolicited smile or kind word can make someones day.

  23. Gorgeous cards! I love how colorful they are. I love spreading joy by baking for others and making cards.

  24. WONDERFUL cards!
    LOVE your HAPPY thoughts, ADORE your CHEERY SMILE 🙂
    Thank You for sharing and INSPIRING!
    PS – my favourite way of spreading joy is sharing handmade cards, sending them all over the world, I’m currently creating crafty activities for the younger neighbourhood children too, their parents enjoy the distraction they provide and I enjoy seeing their artistic creations on display in the windows as we walk by
