Did you get chance to hop along yesterday to celebrate Simon Says Stamp’s Spring Release? It was such fun! I’m taking another look at the release today. Yesterday I concentrated on stencils and today it’s the turn of the dies! Specifically the Balloons die and one of the fabulous new scripty writing dies – Happy Birthday :) This card was so quick and easy to put together but I think it packs a great bright spring-time feel. I cut two balloons, one out of patterned paper which I also cut a heart out of and another out of vellum. I attached twine tails to these and then mounted them onto a panel splattered with mists.


The Happy Birthday was also cut from paper and then loosely glued to the balloons and the card panel. A sprinkling of a few sequins and then the panel was mounted onto a base covered with more patterned paper.  And that was it, quick and easy :)

I’m back tomorrow this time looking at the new stamp sets. Have a great weekend!
