As this is a special celebration Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a whopping $100 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
AND 2 surprise Simon's Exclusive Stamp and Die Sets !
I made 2 cards to share today, one for a boy and one for a girl to be fair :-)
For this first one I used a Balloon Sentiments Stamp and Die Set, Falling Stars Stencil and Boston Terrier Love Stamp and Die Set
I just had to use a Simon on his birthday :-)
Isn't he adorable holding onto all those balloons ! bless him :-) I think this is pretty self explanatory, just to add that I shaped the balloons with a McGill tool to 'round' them and make them look more ,,, well,, like a balloon :-)
Next up is a shaker style card. I coloured the acetate with Alcohol Inks and then used Sequins for the 'shake'
I have a confession to make here. I really wanted to stamp the sentiment directly onto the card, I forgot until after it had all be adhered with dimensional adhesives and when I tried it mis- stamped so I had to improvise and add the banner. I think it looks OK, but would stamp the sentiment directly onto the card if I were to make another one :-) We live and learn eh !
So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!
