More Balloons ..........

More balloon card today (can you tell I was having fun?) For the first one, I cut the balloon shape out of the center of some self adhesive vinyl, and started inking through the shape direct onto the card.....


Move the stencil over, leaving a bit of the inked area showing, and ink again in another colour. Keep going with different colours until you have a bunch of balloons.... you can keep the stencil for future use, and the beauty is that you have a balloon mask as well for future projects


I used the curly sentiments by Simon Says Stamps as 'tails' for the balloons



and my last card had the balloon shapes cut out of the card base itself. I cut a number of balloons out of double sided paper to back the shapes, which means that there are some balloons floating around on the inside of the card as well. The clouds were cut from the Die D Lites Flight 2 set, and the bold sentiment (love it!) is from the very useful Phrase 2 set - pop over to the Spellbinders site to have a browse around all the lovely dies and check out the inspiration on there as well


I promised you a sneaky peek, here they are. What do you think? Made in Italy of the softest leather, I think I better wear them around the house for a while to 'break them in' before the big day. Mind you, I will look slightly mad if anyone comes to the door and I answer it wearing my old jeans and sweatshirt with these on my feet!

  2. Enfys, these balloon cards are so adorable ... I especially like the one you made using the stencil and the sentiment lines to represent the balloon strings is genius!

    WOW, WOW, WOW ... I love those shoes, and the matching clutch is gorgeous too. It looks to me like it was worth all the effort you put in to finding them as they so perfect! You will be the fashion envy of everyone at your Daughter's wedding. Did I mention that I love them?
