Hello there!

Today is the fourth and final day of the July release from Neat & Tangled, and it ends with what I think is a staple in any crafter’s collection!

Day 4 is for the Punchinella stamp set – just think of all the awesome techniques and backgrounds you can create with this!

I used it to whip up a quick background for my card:

I inked the image up with various Distress Inks and then spritzed with water before stamping onto some vellum – I knew I wasn’t to get a perfect stamped impression, but that was kinda the look I was going for 😉

I trimmed the vellum down, cut some of the notches out of the sides and adhered to a white card base with glue dots. I then stamped the round balloon image from Gifts for You (also part of the July release) onto some die-cut balloons with Versamark. I heat set with clear embossing powder and then used darker shades of Distress Inks to rub over the balloons to help define the stars.

I tied some black twine around the balloons and secured with glossy accents. They have been foam mounted to the card allowing the twine to dangle below, with a sentiment from Gifts for You to help secure it in place.

I finished up with sequins from the Pink Lemonade mix now available in the store! There’s also a wood veneer arrow from Pinkfresh Studios.
