Baby Balloon Bear


Flipping heck I forgot to schedule this post but its been one of those week. Well this is the second card for the Guest DT for Lily of Valley Stamps and I've tried to use one of my favourite stamps. I absolutely love the balloon bears and how when you paper pieced the balloons is brings the card together.
I've used some of last bits of the paper pack from Lily of Valley which works so well with kraft card.
The balloons I think are from MFT and the leaf corner is from Memory Box but the flowers are a x cut tiny flower punch.
My sentiment is a Lily of Valley clear stamp but what I do I stamp it on the kraft card and cut it out, turn it over so there no ink showing. Then stamp on white and cut the sentiment out from the inner shape. Stick together and theres just enough of the kraft card to edge the sentiment.


All finished with a bit of ribbon.

This is such a pretty card Debby, and the colours are just perfect. I love the cute image and the way you have placed the clouds below so it looks as though he is sailing through the air. I adore the gorgeous little flowers and leaves and grosgrain ribbon. Perfect! x

Very sweet card. Love how you put the clouds under the bear, as though he is very high in the sky. Clever way to add a shadow to your sentiment label.
