Happy Balloons!

Good morning! Just thought I would pop in a share a couple of one-layer birthday cards I made recently, using clear embossing powder to add a little texture!

I used the cute Mama Elephant stamp set called Party Kit to stamp the balloons - stamping in a rainbow of MFT inks, then stamping over again with Versamark Ink and embossing with clear powder. Love the slightly offset look I ended up with, and the beautiful shine!

Also linking the two of these up with the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Add a Little Texture:

This next one I did a more masculine color scheme, and didn't use the heart shape balloons!

I used Happy Everything for the sentiment on both of these.

There you go - super flat and easy to mail, but still with a bit of a fun touch of texture!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!


  1. Beautiful cards!
    I love the texture you gave to each balloon what a fab idea!
