More Balloons

Happy Friday everyone!

I want to show you another card made with the Balloon Celebration stamp set - it is just so versatile.

I had so much fun making this; just pick some colours you like, and stamp away. It's too easy! I cut the the Happy is plain black cardstock and I added glitter with the new (to Stampin'Up!) Wink of Stella glitter brush. I love it. The photo doesn't do justice to the wonderful glitteriness (yes, it's a word!!) of it. You can buy the Wink of Stella in clear or gold and they are both delicious, and very easy to use. No wearing glitter all over you.

I was so pleased with this card that I made another, this time more of a male version.

I checked with my menfolk and was allowed the glittery "happy". Two very quick nearly one-layer cards, one happy stamper here.

Well hello! It's a new year and there's a new catalogue to play with, which always makes me happy. 

The Occasions catalogue runs until the 31st May, together with the Annual catalogue and is full of gorgeous new products for birthdays, Valentine's day, Easter, Mother's day and more.

There are even more products than in these two catalogues, and you can get them for free! But more about Sale-a-Bration next time. 

This card uses a new stamp set called Balloon Celebration, which comes with a coordinating punch (Balloon Bouquet) for the balloons. Making life easier is always a good thing!

If you'd like to receive a copy of the new catalogue and the Sale-a-Bration brochure, just let me know.
