CTMH Stamp of the Month: Balloon Talk S1404A Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the Month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Patricia Manhire's Creative Corner then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you a card and a layout, both of which feature the April Stamp of the Month Balloon Talk  available exclusively throughout April for $29.99 or for just $5 when you spend $75.

This quick and easy card was made using the Balloon Talk stamp set paired with Slate and Black cardstock and some of the Ariana paper and Complements.

I stamped the sentiment with Black ink on White Daisy Cardstock and then fussy cut it. To add some interest, I added a pierced circle around the sentiment using the Paper Piercing Tool and popped it up using Foam Tape.

My layout was so much fun to make- I started off with a plain White Daisy background and stamped a lot of the Love related Stamp of the Month sentiments using Blush ink.

I added some Creme Brulee cardstock and elements from the Modville Assortments to complete my page. The hearts were punched out of Creme Brulee and Cotton Candy cardstock, and folded in half to add some texture to my page.

The Balloon Talk Stamp of the Month is only available until the 30th April from your CTMH consultant. You can use my shop if you do not have your own consultant already.

I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to Monika's blog - A Sprinkle of Glitter.
