We are excited to announce that Pretty Pink Posh will be hosting a blog hop from today, Friday August 22nd at 6am PST until Monday August 25th at 11:55pm PST. The blog hop will feature cards using craft dies and everyone is encouraged to take part! You will be able to join in the fun at the Pretty Pink Posh blog here.
I created a card to share today that uses some of my favorite Simon Says Stamp dies: Balloons! I love that you get 5 different dies in the set that are all different sizes and shapes. You can use the smaller balloons on a card like I did here, or create a card base out of the largest balloon!
Decorating the balloons once they’re diecut is so much fun! For my balloons on this card, I used three different Simon Says Stamp stencils (Medium Dot, Large Dot and Extra Large Dot) to create fun, glittery spots. I placed each stencil over the cut out balloons, added Versamark ink over top and then covered them with Judikins sparkle embossing powder.
I love the great glitter and shine it adds to the balloons without it being too over the top! To finish the balloons, I used some We R Memory Keepers glitter floss as the balloon strings and then I added a sentiment stamp and some sequins to complete the card!
Simon Says Stamp is proud to be one of the sponsors, along with these other great companies:
