I’ve been having fun of late with the Balloon Builder and Balloon Celebration stamp sets from the Occasions Catalogue
The first three cards have the same background. This is created by applying ink to a clear block (I used the ‘E’ block) then stamping the block down onto a Whisper White card front. I used Soft Sky ink for all three. This technique gives a bit of a texture to the card. You can use any sized block to create this look.
And here’s a feminine take on the balloons
Stamp Set – Balloon Celebration
Card Stock – Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Ink – Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Soft Sky Momento Black
Other – Washi Label Punch, Balloon Bouquet Punch, Dimensionals
Having the coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch makes it quick and easy to create a card (or two) with either stamp set.
