Exciting!
I am sure you have noticed how much I absolutely love the Ink Smooching Technique! It just adds so much to the card and is so easy to do. I have shared a step-by-step tutorial on ink smooching and watercolor background, you can download it now by CLICKING HERE.
The Pandas were all stamped on Shimmery White Card Stock and I stamped the balloon portion several times, then cropped the images with my Paper Snips (Free with a $50 purchase when using my Host Code). The Happy Birthday Sentiment was quickly cropped with the Classic Label Punch!
You can make custom colored enamel shapes by coloring them with any of the Stampin’ Blends! You can also color the Rhinestone Basic Jewels and White Perfect Accents. A great tip I was happy to come across at the airport on the way to OnStage!
