Here in the south it does not take much to shut down the city. But that is okay, it just means I have had some extra time to craft.  Things around here are really busy. Getting ready for our upcoming Open House and Scrap Your Heart Out Retreat.

So let’s take a look at some of the craft projects we have finished.

First lets look at Balloon Adventures and the thinlets Balloon Pop Up. This bundle (144708) makes several great cards with a great WOW factor.  

 The front of this card is stamped using Mint Macaron ink and Sweet Sugarplum ink using one of the great stamps in this set. Then I stamped the sediment in the center.

The inside of this card is the WOW. This die cut allows you to make the balloons pop. The pop up is cut from Whisper White paper, and each balloon is die cut using the same thinlet set. (Hint this is a great time to use those small scrap that often seem to grow in your craft room.)

Here is another way to use this bundle:

 Same die cut, only this time I removed the surrounding box. I did not have any black glitter paper, so I used Basic Black and Wink of Stella. Just brush your card with your Clear Wink of Stella. Now you have the shine and a smooth finish. Again each of the balloons are cut from scrap paper. The stars are from our enamel embellishment set. Again is adds color to the other wise blank and white card.

Of course we can not leave the inside blank. This is the place to  wish them Another Year Full of Adventures.

I love making cards with products that offer so much variety. This bundle offers a lot of great value to your crafting collection. Look at this video for more ideas.
