StampNation Birthday Bash Day 7 ~ Inspired By ~ Simon Says Stamp

Today is the last day of our week long celebration on StampNation celebrating our 4th birthday, and you aren't too late to join in.  Come in fashionably late because you have another week to get your cards made and enter the challenges for your chance to win some amazing prizes from our sponsors.

I'm wrapping up the week with a double video day.  The first one is here on my blog and the second card/video will be up on StampNation later today.  It was a fun process to see what I came up.  The challenge was to create a project inspired by one of StampNation members.  I chose Karolyn Loncon from Paper Therapy. You can see her original card in the StampNation gallery here.  Clicky


While I was cleaning up the mess I made from this first card I decided to make a second card instead of throwing the painted outline balloons away.  Here's a sneak peek for you of the card and video coming exclusively to StampNation later today.

Very pretty balloon cards. I like the thin washi tape you used.
