I created a trio of projects using this awesome balloon release.

For my first project, I created a clean and simple card using the gorgeous new Balloon Stencil.  Using primary colors, I lightly inked the largest balloon thrice, adding strings with a multiliner pen.  I sprayed the panel with Dina Wakley Gilt Gloss Spray and die cut the stitched panel. 

For the sentiment, I cut the shadow layers from vellum and stacked the words atop cut from white.  I really love it.  I may make several of these in various colorways for my stash.

Supplies used:
Balloon Stencil (new)
Birthday Word Dies
Card Mat Dies

For my second project, I embellished a wee kraft box with the little tag dino from Friend-A-Saurus.  I chopped off the stamped balloons from the image and used a white gel pen to cover the little bits of stamped balloon strings that remained after fussy cutting him out.  Or her.. I used purple and pink for the hat.  I stamped the heart balloon, adding a bit of red to the edges and stamping again for color gradation.  A strip of vellum across the top was perfect for the sentiment.

Supplies used:
Balloon Numbers (new)

My final project showcases the same wee dino with balloons bigger than himself.  As with the heart balloon, I added dark ink at the base of the letters and blended out a bit before stamping over the initial green.  I stenciled the dots in yellow then blue along the tags perimeter and dry embossed the tiny dino stencil onto the green base panel.  I used that same stencil to add a bit of yellow about the sentiment inside of the card.

Balloon Letters 1 and 2 (new)
Luggage Tag Dies
Polka Dot Stencil (new)
Mini Dino Stencil
