Balloon Ride Blog Hop

Welcome to the Damask Divas Blog Hop featuring Balloon Ride!  If you came here from Amie's blog then you are in the right place.  If you just came here by chance, be sure to check out the full list of blog hop participants at the Damask Divas Blog.

Using the Balloon Ride paper pack, I made a 12x12 page layout using the "sunburst" technique (there are a ton of Youtube videos that show you how to do this).  I added just a bit of stamping under the sentiment, using the Love Life stamp set in Crystal Blue ink, and the photo mat corners were stamped using the Believe in Yourself stamp set in Saddle ink. Then I just added different pieces from the Balloon Ride complements, some silver shimmer trim, clear acrylic flowers (leftover in my stash), and a few Aqua dots. I love the colors of this paper!!
May Special!!  With your qualifying $50 purchase, you can get the Free To Be Me paper pack for only $5.  The colors and patterns are so bright and fun!  And don't forget the May Stamp of the Month, which you can ALSO get for $5 with your $50 qualifying purchase.

April Stamp of the Month

Hello there!!  Hope you are having a great day......I'm trying to get a little crafting done today myself...between vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom, etc. etc.....don't seem to be getting much cleaning done though :)     

Here's a card I made using the Jubilee paper (it's actually the leftovers from the Workshop on the Go Kit) and the April Stamp of the Month, Balloon Talk. This is such a versatile set you could use it over and over for many different things.  I also used one of our new embossing folders, quatrefoil, to emboss the honey card stock.  I think it gives it a little "oomph." The card stock/paper pieces were cut at 1.5x3.75 inches.   The sentiments were stamped on card stock and then I just hand-trimmed the pieces.  "Hey there" and "Hello" are adhered with foam tape.  Of course all of these products are sold separately, you don't have the purchase the WOTG kit, but it just shows there are plenty of supplies in those kits to make other projects, too.   

This stamp set is only available until April 30th!  Get it for $5.00 with any qualifying $50 purchase or you can purchase it outright for $17.95.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you get some playtime in today!

Jubilee card

Hi everyone!!!  I finished up my Jubilee Workshops on the Go kit last night and I've been wanting to make one of those "sunburst" cards, so I played around with the leftovers and made this card.  It actually went together pretty quickly. I cut strips of paper from corner to corner to create the "bursts" and then adhered them to a piece of scrap cardstock, then matted that piece with Colonial White cardstock.  What a fun card!!   Purchase your Jubilee WOTG kit today!
