Balloon Gnome


Perfect for my soon to be 6 year old Grandson’s Birthday!


KLM Digital Stamps is our Sponsor December 20-23rd over at Rhea’s Passionate Paper Creations & Friends. . I was lucky enough to color up Balloon Gnome. They have lot’s of fun images, buzz on over and check them out. Remember to read my whole post for something special from the Sponsor just for you! Now on with the show and tell….


The is the set I used. Click Here to access it, but make sure to read the whole post first!


Needing to pop the yellow color in my card, I also added 3D Crystal lacquer to the balloon. It serves two purposes, dimension and shine! Notice the bee? I got some fuzz in my lacquer, that bee is hiding it. But he does fit right in!


I love the look of two different fonts. They printed up nicely for me to cut them with a small rectangular die. On the oval die cut and this one I took a C10 marker and ran it along the edge, just to Make it stand out from the patterned paper.


I am SO in love with this little guy!
