The Stamp Review Crew: Balloon Celebration


Welcome to another Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop!  We share our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday.  This week we are using a fun and popular new set in the Occasions catalog, Balloon Celebration, which coordinates with the Balloon Bouquet punch.  If you are following the blog hop order, you have just come from the hugely talented Holly Krautkremer's blog.  I just love her style!

I was playing along with Sunday Stamps Challenge #122, which is a sketch, and I stamped this cute little layout.  No need for a sentiment on the front, IMO, as the balloons, splatter, and sequins say PAR-TY!

This set is very versatile with the masking technique, as well as using the solid images, outlines, and glitter and shading coordinating images.  You can come up with endless different combinations of balloon layouts.

Stamps: Balloon Celebration; Paper: Whisper White, It's My Party DSP; Ink: Daffodil Delight, Hello Honey, Memento Tuxedo Black; Accessories: Silver Sequin Trim, Watercolor brush, Softly Falling EF, Big Shot.

Now make sure you check out the next stop to see what one of our resident artisans, Valerie Moody, has put together with this week's stamp set.

Great card Heidi! Love the layering of the balloons using the masking technique. They look fantastic stamped close together like that. The use of the splatters, sequins and the colours make for a fun card. Rochelle

Very cute ideas! The balloon one is my favorite. I would like to add this activity to my son’s birthday party and are just done with booking a venue NYC for the party. I am sure that he will love arrangements.
