Birthday Balloons

Children's cards - I don't make them often enough but every now and then I need to create some for the Shop what sells my cards.

This week I needed to stock up on girls cards - I learned every quickly I need to get some more images for children's cards, but thankfully I had this clear stamp on hand - phew!  


The image has been stamped using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink full ink pad in Rose Bud.  It is then cut and embossed using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine and the Labels Eighteen  Spellbinders™ Nestabilities®. Before the image is removed from the Die, I have used it as a Stencil - sponging around the inside using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink Dew Drop in Desert Sand and a
IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Sponge Daubers™

The sentiment is from a retired Layers of Color stamp set and stamped using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink full size ink pad in Onyx Black.
