Balloon Adventures Stamps & Pop Up Dies

Balloon Adventures
One of my most recent purchases was the Balloon Adventures Pop Up Dies.
As I had achieved my first goal I was given the Balloon Adventures stamp set
as my chosen gift from my friend and Recruiting Demonstrator Jan Brown
which I am really thrilled with this gift and co-ordinating dies.

Here's a card I made using my new stamps and dies 
which can be found in the new Spring Occasions catalogue 2017
As I still had some Pop of Pink DSP on my desk from my last creation
I used it again, I just love this colour combo of 
Whisper White, Basic Black and Melon Mambo.
 Teaming this DSP up with Silver Shimmer paper makes this card "pop" even more!
I am very pleased with the speed that this card came together
no pfaffing around with this one! (yes I could pfaff for England LOL)
I used a 5x7 card base and layered it with Melon Mambo carsdstock,
then a layer of dotty DSP from the Pop of Pink DSP pack
I found the dots were a bit distracting so added a layer of Basic Black cardstock
I didnt want to cover up the dotty paper too much so made the balloons overlap this layer like they were popping out of the Basic Black coloured layer!
This fabulous die set is a joy to work with, the dies cut beautifully.
 I just did a little bit of trimming of the framed die cut
as I didn't want the frame on the front of the card this time.
I added the dotty and striped balloon die cuts,
then stamped the banner and sentiment then cut it out
I used dimensionals behind the balloons and the banner 
to give them a 3d effect, then I cut the tiny bow die in silver shimmer paper
  I added 3 very thin little strips of Melon Mambo 
to represent longer balloon strings as it had been cut from the frame!

and then HEY PRESTO this card was done! 
"Simples" as that Meerkat would say! LOL

As this is for an engagement celebration
 I cut some tiny little hearts using the cookie cutters punch to finish it off.

I plan to make some "presents" with the other dies today 
for my upcoming card buffet kits

As its such  a miserable day outside
I plan to stay in and have some more creative fun with this set.
