Birthday Balloons

I bought these balloon dies from Simon Says Stamp a few weeks ago and decided to try them out with some glitter paper. I die cut some of the balloons and I also used the negative space as the panel of my card. I stamped over it with an older Hero Arts background stamp (called Large Plaid Pattern) with the mid-tone soft granite ink before adding the balloons. To fill in the negative space, I just placed some glitter paper behind the balloon cut outs (the yellow and blue/teal balloon). The strings and the greeting came from the Hero Arts Perfect Day set.

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great week!

I Love Owls

I've said this before,but I'm going to say it again. This Hero Arts Missing You (OWH) stamp set is one of my favs! I think all the images are adorable, especially the owl. I colored the owls with Copic markers and then added them on top of the Lawn Fawn paper. Simple, but I still like it.  :)  Have you heard that Hero Arts is making dies for this set now? I can't wait to order them!

Hope your week is off to a great start!

Hello Sunshine!

Wow, I didn't realize how long it had been since I posted. Apparently I've been neglecting the poor ol' blog.  :) 

This was a quick and simple card to make. Not much to say about it, other than I used some Lawn Fawn paper for the tag and both the greeting and sun are from a Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Pure Sunshine set.

I was thinking of my nephew when I made this card because he's always smiling. Here is a pic of his adorable sunshiney face.  :)

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is full of sunshine and smiles!
