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.
