Uniko Studio: Introducing Balloon Bash

Saturday, February 7, 2015

Good morning! I'm excited that today I can finally share with you my first project using Uniko Studio's new stamp set called "Balloon Bash". Beginning February 11th, 2015, you will be able to purchase this set HERE along with all the other new sets being released this month!!

In case you missed it a couple days ago, here is the Sneak Peek photo of the stamp set.

As I was brainstorming ideas for this set, I remembered a technique that I had seen that I wanted to try. I'm so glad I did because I just LOVE LOVE how this turned out! Check out the video by one of my paper crafting idols, Jennifer McGuire. She shows how to use two colors to achieve a more realistic looking balloon. It took me a little practice, but once I got the hang of it, I was soooo happy with the results!

I love the subtle stamped stars in the background. It's a little difficult to see in the photo, but they really give a fun, special finishing touch to this card. You MUST get this set!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to visit all the design team members and Beverley's blog to see more gorgeous creations using this fun set! COME BACK TOMORROW FOR MORE!!
