Party Balloons





 Hello and welcome to Serendipity Stamps, 
first Blog Hop of 2016

We will be showing new products every third 
Wednesday of the month.  On that same post
we will have another card for the half way post of the 
challenge. Don’t forget you can win $20 to the store (one random  winner)
To enter to win for the hop just leave comments through Sunday January 24. 
You could win $20 to spend at the Serendipity Stamps store. You have two chances to win each month. 

On the card above I chose 3 of the largest balloons and layered them 3 times, 
I have fun foam under the top layer.

On this card I made a frame using the Storybook 1 Die 
to create a window.
I sponged ink over the stencil I created with the balloon die.

I sponged some ink and then added my 3 layer balloons on top.



This last card was made after all the other cards were completed.
I'm going to say my stripes are the three Stitched Borders 1 :)
Some of you may see I used a bit of the up coming 12kits
supplies on this card.

The special for the hop is free shipping on all US orders of $15 or more good January 20 -24.  

You should have arrived from Karen Amidons blog. Next on the hop will be Miriam Napier

  32. Five really pretty cards and I love the pretty edges of the first and the last, and the way you have made a stencil to ink through on the fourth, and the lovely pink sparkly balloons with the sequins are so pretty on the second, and then the nice contrast between the green inked background and the white balloons on the third. x

  33. Marybeth I love your cards! I don't even know where to begin with what I love about them, but I'm so glad you made the gold one - wouldn't that be a fun New Year card or 50th Anniversary? And I love how you used the Storybook die as a window - just like peeking in at a birthday party!
