Avery Elle Spring Release Blog Hop

I am so excited to share today's post. I have to say this is one of my favorite release. You should come from the awesome Karolyn Loncon. If not, you can find the complete list on the bottom of the post.

I am sharing a few cards made with Numbered Balloons stamp and die set. Aren't the numbered balloon the cutest?! It is so easy to create personalized paper crafts.
  

Here is what I made with this set. I can't stop and made three cards.


For my first card, I paired the new die with Cupcake stamp and die. I used the balloon as a candle. The card base is from The Caribbean card set. I used paper from the Everyday Paper Collection. Vellum was cut with Avery Elle Signature die.


 I paired the numbered balloon with balloons from Balloon stamp and die set for my second card. Background was created with watercolor on watercolor card stock. The card base is from the Caribbean card set. I can use a few birthday cards for 6 and 8 years old in the next a couple weeks:)


My last card was paired with stamps from Balloon stamp set again. It is a one layer card, my favorite kind. The balloons were stamped in Sea Glass, Thistle, and Linen on the speckled card base from the Natural collection card set. Numbered balloon and stars from the Finished Frames die cut set were cut out on gold glitter card stock.


Here are all three of them. Hop you will enjoy it!


 Here is the order of the hop. Your next stop is fabulous Caryn Davies.
