My newest addition is the hot air balloon and as soon as I opened the packaging, my first thought was, Wow, Baubles! I had been looking to get some bauble dies before Christmas but either couldn't make up my mind or they were out of stock.
So of course my first two makes were Christmas cards and I would happily have bought the die set just for that, then I tried making an actual balloon and absolutely love it. So much so that I made another card, almost the same, straight away as I knew I wouldn't be able to part with it at my next demo ;)
The pastel balloon card is made using Papermania 12x12 Designstax double sided papers. They're a lovely weight for die cutting. The card base is a Papermania 7x5" kraft card and I have used little bits of kraft card in the scene too and also some Papermania white textured cardstock.
I have inked some of the edges with Artiste dye based ink and stamped the sentiment with it too. The stamps are from the Vintage Notes Urban Stamp Set. To finish I have added some Papermania adhesive pearls.
If anyone has tried any of the build-a-scene dies, I'd love to hear what you think of them and which one is your favourite :) xx
