Birthday Balloons | Simple stamping techniques


One of the first stamp sets i designed i was this A5 Birthday Balloons selection. I created this after many requests from customers visiting the shop asking for balloons that are large enough to be a focal point but that can also be used to create backgrounds.

I really enjoyed creating these and i enjoy using them even more. They are fantastic for birthdays and celebrations, male / female and all ages.

The three different sized solid balloons are fantastic for building up backgrounds. I like to start with the larger balloon in a light colour, then the medium with a slightly darker colour and finally the largest with the darkest colour. I have filmed a video using this technique and put it up on my You Tube it shows how to create the card sample in the photo above. If you would like to watch it you will find it here. 

I also created a video for CraftStash that shows how to create the below card sample. In this card i used Halftone Spots background stamp from CraftStash and the Imagine Design Create birthday balloons as the front image, the stamp sets work together really well.
