I have used the super sweet ellie stamp set, with the fun balloons! I can hear the teachers saying a big hi, hello, or welcome to the children as they head back to classes this year! I used a fun letter designer paper for the background and then painted the balloons and ellie with tim holtz distress inks. I cut out the star and heart and popped them up on pop dots for a little dimension. A fun week to create a card...can't wait to see what you create!

what a fun card this was to create...a one layer card at that! I have used a flower stamp and my misti to stamp the flowers and then created the sky with tim holtz ink and sponging. I then used the large sentiment stamp from impression obsession with my misti to get a crisp black bold color overtop of the scene. A sweet crd that was easy to make and has a big statement. I can't wait to see what you create this week!
