April's Stamp of the Month..."Balloon Talk"

Welcome to the CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
April 2014's Stamp of the Month is called.....
****Balloon Talk****

With over 50 participants, you are surely to find wonderful inspiration through this blog hop.  It makes a circle so if you are starting here just continue until you make your way back and you will have made it through them all.  If you have already started and are coming from Kami Welter's blog, "Scrappin' 4 Memories", then you are on the right track.

I love how this card came out. I knew I wanted to use some of the coordinating Cricut shapes from the Artbooking and Artiste cartridges.  The first heart overlay that I cut out didn't turn out (wrong direction), but that mistake lead to me using it as a stencil for the cotton candy reinker to create a really cool background. I also repeated that background for the inside piece. The rest was pretty simple too. Just a bunch of trimmed stamped images from this month's stamp of the month and the cricut shapes. Of course, what's a card without a little ribbon and bling? ;) 

 Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Papers: Lollydoodle B&T, Slate CS, White Daisy CS, Sorbet CS, Cotton Candy CS, Whisper CS, Key Lime CS
Stamps Used: Balloon Talk SOTM

Emellishments: Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon, Black & Grey Opaques (retired)
