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!

  2. Pretty awesome card here, Laura! Love the balloons on top of each other and the die cut is a great technique to use. Thanks for this video.

  3. Love this! I’ve wondered how to get the die cut stamp to align so perfectly, lol. Very pretty!

  4. Laura, this card is so fun for a birthday! I have to agree with you – balloons are just perfect for b-day cards! Love how you blended the colors – awesome design with the die-cut YOU too!

  5. Hi Laura I think we should join balloons anonymous because I’m a ballon addict as well I’m more of a mylar /helium girl myself cause they last longer and I have a tank in my garage as well! I would rather receive a ballon bouquet than flowers people think I’m crazy but I don’t care ha. Your card makes me very happy and your blending is always spot on no matter what you are making thanks for a great video I always enjoy your banter while you create tfs

  6. I love Laura’s card art! These balloons are so fun. I’m so thankful that Laura’s blog is still sending out it’s posts to her email subscribers. Sure hope you guys choose another service soon!

  7. great idea – love the layered YOU and the balloon stencil. I will make my own balloon stencil from my dies & heavy duty plastic (from packaging!).

  8. Laura, your card is just dynamic!! I really appreciate you making a video tuitorial on how you created this card.
