A big congrats to Sally, the newest Featured Stamper (FS627) on Splitcoast! She has a fun, colorful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I liked the balloons so I kept those, but I used different images & dies, different colors & a little different layout.

My card is pretty easy…I colored & die cut the balloons w/ the matching die & used a stitched hills die to cut some leftover pieces of patterned paper for the opposing corners. I though it needed a little something, so I added a sun (made from a flower die), a couple of clouds & a few crystals.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Free For All (F4A465) & Mixabilities (MIX312) Challenges are about Things that go Pop (my balloons) & the color Coral (2 of my balloons are coral). 

My card is pretty easy..I used a few heart die to cut a reverse mask & used it to generally outline the shape of the hearts then watercolored the inside of them. I drew the little strings w/ a white Posca pen & a lt gray marker then added the greeting & few punched silver glitter hearts.

Here’s a look at the inside.

My card is fairly quick since this fab die does almost all of the work for you! Since I first saw it, it’s been one of my faves (especially since I suggested it to Mary, way back when, lol)! I adore hot air balloons…it’s impossible not to smile & be happy when you see them. And I used it today because I have a friend who recently received some bad news, health wise & I’m sure she could use a smile.

After die cutting the reverse hot air balloons out of cobalt, I found some paper that had these chevrons in blues & green & I thought it went perfectly w/ the patterns in the balloons. I die cut the clouds part of the die again in white to add on top of the white stitched frame, then added the fussy cut speech bubble w/ the greeting in the lower right.

Here’s a look at the inside using some of the leftover parts. (I also used a mask of the balloon die to sponge the blue ink on the side of the envelope.)

Please be sure to comment on all the DT will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!
