The Balloon Builders set from Stampin’ Up is a lot of fun. There are countless kinds of balloon animals to build and the regular shaped balloons coordinate with the Balloon Bouquet punch. Additionally there is a hidden Easter Bonus, that I first discovered being used by Carolina Evans. One of the balloon shapes makes PERFECT jelly beans! Jelly beans are perfect for Easter, birthdays, or any festive occasion card. Thanks for the idea!
I am still amazed by the details you get when you stamp these images. They have shading to them, they are shiny… and you get all that from little pixel stamp dots! I’m still surprised that the ink doesn’t clog up all those fine details, but they come out perfect every time!
This card is quick and easy and FUN to make, and would be perfect if you needed to make a whole bunch of cards all the same: Make it for a swap, send it out to all the relatives on Easter, or make party invitations!
