People send more birthday cards than for any other reason and this card just says it's time to celebrate! And the stamp set is called Birthday Celebration. I love that there is a new balloon punch that coordinates with the two different sizes of balloons. I do like fussy cutting images but when you are doing a lot of cards having a punch makes it so much easier and faster too. I played around for awhile with this set and discovered that I liked the balloons a lighter, softer shade of ink so I inked up the stamp and stamped off lightly on scrap before stamping on my cardstock. See the photo below that shows the comparison of straight ink and stamped off ink. I used the new Wink of Stella glimmer brush on the balloons but it's hard to see in the photo. Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post to learn about this great new glimmer tool.
Thanks for stopping by and stay warm.
