Hi there everyone!

Laurel Beard here today for some of my favorite peeps, The Foiled Fox!!!! I’ve got a birthday card I’m bursting to share with you. Get it? Bursting? LOL!!!!! The My Favorite Things Bundle of Balloons stamp set is a versatile set that you can use year round for any kind of celebration card! Who doesn’t love balloons? There is also a coordinating die set, but I chose to focus on the stamping today. To assemble this card is really easy! Just grab some colored ink and start stamping away! I am using all Catherine Pooler inks because they are amazeballs.

Make sure to overlap your balloons because then you create a brand new color! TRICK: A few of my balloons were brighter than I wanted so I stamped over them with white pigment ink to soften the color, and then stamped a few more balloons in the same white pigment ink. I added some lines with a cartoonist pen and then stamped the sentiment!

I did find a sharpie in my stash and added a thicker line in between the two sentiments just to ground the Happy Birthday some. Otherwise, it was just kind of floating around with the balloons! 🙂

I hope you like today’s card and thanks so much for popping in today! 🙂
