Big You

Hi readers! Happy Tuesday to you! I’m pumped to share this month’s SSS exclusive feature from Laura Bassen with you that has some seriously dreamy colors blended together to make such a beautiful and textured Birthday card for someone special. I think it’s also neutral enough that you could give it to a guy or gal, which is also pretty fantastic!

  1. Wow, I love this card! So simple, but stunning! The SSS inks are so pretty and blend beautifully!

  2. I knew I should have gotten this stencil! I wished I saw your video first before I backed out in ordering this stencil. I love your card. I will try to reinvent it using my negative space balloon die-cuts.

  3. Such a fun card – love the “you” partly die cut out of the balloons. What a great idea! Love Laura’s presentation style – you always end up smiling through her videos.

  4. I love this! I can’t wait to get my Silhouette Cameo set up so I can cut out words like this!!

  5. Now I get how you lined up that balloon on the letter “y”! LOVE the soft colored balloons!

  6. loved this much so that I had to order the stencil…

    stencils are amazing & you can do so many things with them…….

  7. I love how simple and clean this card is! The balloons are so colorful without seeming to take over the card!

  8. Super cute. Love the balloons and how the colors overlap. It certainly adds depth to the card, which I really enjoy. I will have to watch the video this weekend and try the technique s too. Ty.
