Simple Card Using Clearly Besotted Best Balloon Stamp Set

My little helper wanted to play with the distress inks again so we came up.with a little design together.

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

I have entered this into the Polkadoodles Anything Goes Challenge

Supplies used

1 Pre Cut White Card Base
Creative Expressions Mini Stencil in Diamond Plate
Clearly Besotted Best Balloons
Distress Ink in Mustard Seed, Festive Berries, Dusty Concord, Mermaid 
Blending Tool
Spectrum Nour Finesse Ink Pad in Rustic Brown
Spectrum Noir Tri-blend Markers
Hot Glue Gun
Foam Squares


We taped the stencil to the table to make it easier for my daughter to manage. She then blended the stencil using a different colour in each section

We removed the tape, stamped and coloured the images and used hot glue to attach twinge to each image. 

These were attached to the card base using foam squares

The hot glue gun was used to attach all the twinge together in the middle of the card

Using ribbon from a chocolate bunny (I tend to hoard things like that) I tried a bow and attached over the top.of the twinge

All the ends were trimmed

And the sentiment 'Let's Party' was stamped using Festive Berries distress ink in the lower right quadrant 

Thank you for reading

Happy Crafting
