Hello Everyone, Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Occasions Catalog Blog Hop, which features amazing products from the new Occasions Catalog. Sit back and enjoy some wonderful ideas using the newest stamping goodies!
If you have been following the blog hop in order, you have just come from Twila's post featuring the Number of Years bundle. Twila has some beautiful projects! And today I will show you some projects using the set Balloon Celebration.
Framelits are fun, and how often do we want to have a framelit for every stamp image? But, hands-down, nothing is quicker and easier than a stamp-punch combo! The new coordinating Balloon Bouquet builder punch was a large factor in my love for this set. Today, I have a couple fast and easy birthday cards.
You'll notice a spotty look on the solid balloon image. Getting even ink coverage on solid stamps can be difficult. There are ways to fix this, like cleaning the stamp before using, rubbing it on jeans, or even using Versamark, but I kinda like the effect.

With weather coming in for the weekend, I all-of-the-sudden find myself rushing to get things done in case I need to leave for Florida a day early. Hence a combo card for the hop and the Friday Mashup #240.
Peeking out from behind the focal point is a fun shaker panel.
