Sequin and Glitter Balloons from the Balloon Celebration stamps and punches set by Stampin' Up!

Hello,
Today's card is one of those that I'm just not sure about! You know the kind, you have this idea but when it's made you're just not sure if you like it or not?? I have had a few people say they like it but, well you know... What do you think? Honestly?
I started by punching three balloons from thick white card and adding sequins from my stash all over, then adding in a couple of Blushing bride glimmer paper balloons to break it up a bit...
I stamped the background using the Party with Cake stamps and versamark, then added the strings from the matching Balloon Celebration stamp set. BTW: You can save 15% when purchasing the stamps as a bundle with the punch :-)
I adhered the bottom of the balloons with tombow using a dimensional at the top of (most of) the balloons.
One final photo!
Well, thats all for today, back soon with more, don't forget to leave your honest opinions in the comment section! :-)
Thanks for looking!

Using Stampin' Up's Beautiful Ride, Paper Pieced on a DL Card

Hello,
Today's card uses the VW Beetle from the "Beautiful Ride" stamp set which was cut out when I made my "Love Bug" shaker card a couple of weeks ago, you can see that HERE if you missed it ;-) I mentioned not wanting to waste the paper car I cut out, so this is what I made with it. As haven't made a DL card in a while and as this car is quite wide it was the perfect excuse, take a look...
I decided to jazz it up a bit by paper piecing the windows, suitcases and wheels using different paper, still from the Love Blossoms stack though...
This sentiment is from the same stamp set and I stamped it on kraft card to match the layer under the white.
And a side view to finish today, I love these little enamel dots, they are the perfect finishing touch don't you think?
I hope you liked todays card? Thanks so much for looking today,

Subtle Balloons using Balloon Celebration by Stampin' Up!

Hi there, 
 I have a cute card today using the new Balloon Celebration stamps and matching punch (15% cheaper when purchased together) from the Spring/Summer catalogue to make a pretty, subtle coloured card, have a peek...
The clouds in the background were stamped twice before re-inking to get a stronger, then paler image to rest the balloons upon.
The sentiment is from the same set and was punched using the washi label punch and I added a blushing bride ribbon bow to the joining point of the strings
I adhered the bottom of most of the balloons with tombow and the top with dimensionals, and I added some flat to create different textures.
All bedazzled using the clear Wink of Stella glitter pen, I just love this pen!
and one final photo today
So, I hope you liked todays card? And thanks for stopping by today,

Cover Tiny Treat Boxes using Birthday Blooms DSP with FREE Mini Tutorial

Hello!
I was playing aroud with the Birthday Blooms DSP last week and I thought it would look lovely against the Kraft colour of the Tiny Treat Boxes, how cute would this be to gift a pair of earrings or even some chocolate for Valentine's day? ;-)
Have a peek...
I added a mini banner to the top, stamped using a Birthday Blooms sentiment, and finished with a blushing bride glimmer paper flower
I inked the edges of the paper using a sponge and a Watermelon Wonder ink pad before adhering to the box.
So I thought I'd share a mini tutorial with you today showing how I made the notch in the paper to match the box front, easily!
Start by cutting 5 squares of DSP to 4.5cm (or approx 1+3/4")
 And mark the halfway point on one of the squares - 2.25cm (or approx 7/8")
To avoid measuring the halfway point you could simply fold and pinch a crease ;-)
Take your 3/4" circle punch
and using your centre mark, punch away approx a third of the circle.
 Test it against the box to see if you need to remove any more before sticking.
If it's OK, ink the edges and adhere to the front of your box!
And you're done!
So, I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial?
Thanks so much for looking today,
