Hooray on your Birthday

Hi Guys, I am over at the Honey Bee Stamps blog today showcasing my card Hooray on your Birthday.

Today’s card is made using two stamp sets from Honey Bee’s  latest release called Hooray and Celebration Box. Both sets have matching dies. 

I was drawn to the balloons in the Celebration Box set because I wanted to make something colorful and bright. Also, having a cheery birthday card tucked away is really handy!

I am quite a fan of these two sets as they work so well together. It’s amazing how many occasions can be covered by these two sets alone. Birthdays, engagements, weddings, graduations and births….including twins!

For my card, I decided to die cut the balloons from co-ordinating papers. Alternatvely, you could stamp the balloon images and color them using markers or watercolors. I wanted to go with bright bold colors so they would pop off the card. I added some curly strings and popped up a couple of the balloons for added dimension. 

Finally, I used my MISTI tool for stamping the Hooray before die cutting it. It’s a large stamp and I also wanted it to be really bold so it required double stamping. Then, I popped this up over the balloons.

I hope you have a great rest of week guys and I will see you again very soon.

Hugs, Cheryl 🙂
