Balloon Valentines by Wendy Kessler


Balloon Valentines by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Balloon Animals Stamp Set (February 2016 SOTM), Cardstock, Ink, Lagoon Hearts Washi Tape, and Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen.

This is such a fun stamp set!  I used it to create Valentines for my preschooler.  I also made enough so that she can use them next year for Kindergarten.  It will be so nice to have these done and just go buy balloons to attach.  This design can easily be changed up with a different animal of your choosing and any number of color combinations!  I printed “Float Away With Me!” on cardstock and added at the end.  I just wrote “from” on the back and had my daughter sign her name.  It was easiest to do this first before attaching the yellow cardstock.

Creative Carving Layout by Wendy Kessler Supplies used: CTMH Seaside Paper Packet (retired), CTMH Bronze Shimmer Trim, Making Memories Velvet Alphabet Stickers, and CTMH Liquid Glass.

This is some old paper that I am finishing up and I never would have thought of using Seaside paper for a pumpkin carving layout but the colors worked.  I had a hard time with the title because I wanted something big and also wanted to use up some stickers.  I found these and as it turned out they were past their expiration date because they were no longer sticky.  Nothing a bit of Liquid Glass can’t fix though (I tried Glue Dots and they wouldn’t hold.)

B is for Beloved Bouquet (stamp set): I cannot believe how much I have used this stamp set.  I really only bought it because of the sentiments but I have definitely gotten my use out of the flower as well.  The two-step stamping makes details quick and easy!
