Balloon Adventures for What Will You Stamp?

What a fun stamp set we're using today for the What Will You Stamp? challenge.  Balloon Adventures is perfect for all those birthday cards we always need as well as any other celebration like graduation, a new job or retirement.  The possibilities are endless.   

The balloon stamps and birthday sentiments are obvious, but "let's celebrate" and "the best is yet to come" and "party on" could be used with the balloons for any of the occasions I mentioned earlier.
I can't wait to check out all the other projects at WWYS.  See you over there!

I used the following products on my card today:

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'll see you back here soon.

Dragonfly Dreams for What Will You Stamp?

Hi and welcome back to my blog.  Sorry I've been missing in action for a few weeks.  I'm finally feeling a little better and have made a cute card with the What Will You Stamp? challenge set Dragonfly Dreams.  I have a feeling that there will be a lot of dragonflies appearing on WWYS so I decided to use the adorable little bee.    In case you would like to recreate this card I have included all the details below.

This stamp set and matching thinlit dies are fabulous.
Love the font used on the sentiments also.
Altogether a must have bundle!  

Just click HERE to go over to the Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has to share.

Here is the recipe to create your own card:

 • Daffodil Delight:   5 1/2" x 8 1/2" (scored at 4 1/4")    3 7/8” x 5 1/8” 
• Basic Black:    4” x 5 1/4"     1 1/2" x 4 1/2"    2” x 5”     5/8” x 3” 
• Whisper White:   1 1/2" x 4 1/2"    1” x 4”    5/8” x 3” 
1. Use Memento Tuxedo Black and the Labeler Alphabet to stamp the sentiment on the 5/8” x 3” Whisper White strip. Use Paper Snips to trim. 
2. Use the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to emboss the Daffodil Delight mat. 
3. Use Layering Squares Framelits to diecut the scalloped Basic Black and straight edged Whisper White squares from the 1 1/2" x 4 1/2" strips of cardstock. 
4. Use Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits to diecut 3 Basic Black bumblebees from the 2” x 5” strip. 
5. Stamp 3 bumblebee bodies onto the 1” x 4” Whisper White strip using Daffodil Delight ink. Use Paper Snips to trim the bodies and glue to the back of the bumblebee diecuts. 
6. Glue the Daffodil Delight and Basic Black mats together and glue onto the card base. 
7. Glue the Basic Black and Whisper White squares together and glue onto the Daffodil Delight mat. 
8. Use Paper Snips to flag the end of the 5/8” x 3” strip of Basic Black and then glue the Bee Happy sentiment onto that. 
9. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the sentiment strip as well as the bumblebees.

I used the following Stampin' Up! products:
