I managed to create two cards for this month's Twofer challenge, which is all about balloons.
I'm playing at:
Here's a close-up of the first one. The background was made by applying DIY glitter embossing paste (translucent paste + glitter embossing powder by WOW!) through a dot stencil. The striped die is by Papertry Ink (Mix & Match: Flourishes). The balloon die is by Marianne Design and was cut from an ink-blended (CP ink) panel. The hugs die (MFT) has 3 layers adhered together. For the top layer, I used direct to paper using CP ink.
I'm linking up this card at:
- #131 5th Birthday celebrations
(I went with the hugs for this one)
- Anything goes with dies
Apparently, this day is being celebrated on March, 3rd,
but I guess this day is worth celebrating any day of the year.
Thanks, Cornelia, Rosi and Gundi, for starting this new card club!
For my second card, I die cut a stencil from Yupo paper using the PTI ink die and then blended CP ink throught the stencil to create a subtle background. I used several green CP inks to blend the cardstock for my balloon turned shamrock. The sentiment (MFT) was heat embossed in gold (Papermania). A few jewels finish off the design.
