I'm featuring a super cool set and coordinating dies, Balloons that is perfect por super quick Birthday cards or everyday colorful and happy cards, I loooove it! So I made 3 birthday cards with it, and that's perfect because I'm always needing more birthday cards :)



The first one is a quick one, I used the biggest ballons and instead of inking them, I applied the ink with a daubber so I could color them with more than one ink to create a gradient of color :)


For the second card I took the smallest ballons and created a card full of balloons, I stamped a birthday sentiment but I think I'll repeat this simply design for an everyday card with a sentiment like "you make me happy"


A closer look to the gold embossing sentiment



My third card is a shaker (yes! I couldn't resist making one!) so I used the dies for this one and tried to create a little boy birthday card going for greens and soft blues :)


Here's a closer look of the shakers:



I hope you like them and felt inspired to create some cards using balloons hehe! To continue hopping or if you want to start it from the beggining here's the complete list of participants:
