Love Balloon

I've been playing around with a few new goodies ! One being the super duper new release from Clearly Besotted Stamps and the other being the We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag Punch Board. I also bought the Gift Box one too and had a play with that yesterday with some scrap card !  I must say, I didn't find the gift bag punch board as easy to use as the gift box one but that really could just be me !  My hubby says I'm hopeless when it comes to anything slightly mechanical !

There are some great videos on Youtube though so after watching those a few times and wasting a bit of card, I got the hang of it !  These boards are brilliant bit of kit to have though.  I also have the envelope punch board and I love that !

Anyway, down to my gift bag.

I used a sheet of My Mind's Eye 12x12 Fine and Dandy, Tickled Pink "Lovely" paper.  It's great to be able to use up those poor unloved pieces of 12x12 I have stashed away !

I just love these new Clearly Besotted Stamps "Up In the Air" with their matching dies.  I die cut one balloon, stamped it up and then die cut another balloon and cut out just the balloon, scored it in the centre and then used a spot of glossy accents to stick it to the other balloon to give it a 3D look.

I very lightly sprayed the tag with some Glimmer Mist before sticking the balloon and sentiment to it.

I used the new Simon Says Stamp inks which are gorgeous and so juicy !  I just love the coverage of them and the rich colours.

As always, you can see links to all the goodies I used below.    The Clearly Besotted Stamps new release will be in the Simon Says Stamp Store very soon !
