Newton's Nook Designs March Release - Uplifting Wishes Stamp Set + Balloon Shaker Die

hi hi hi!
hello and welcome to day 2 of Newton's Nook Designs March release!

and oh my gosh you guys...this release is so completely amazing! I'm in LOVE with each new set, and I can't wait for you all to see it, too! it's so celebratory and FUN!
today we're showing off the Uplifting Wishes Stamp Set + Balloon Shaker Die
you can totally create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on March 16th, right here!

here's my first card:

oh yeah, rainbow action!
I used the Balloon Shaker Dies to create this focal point, but I didn't make it a shaker! I used some Distress Ink colors in rainbow to watercolor the edge of the balloon, and heat embossed the sentiment in the center!

the background was created with white embossing paste and the SUPER FUN new Bubbly Stencil!! 

for my second card, I did something **really** fun! 

hello gorgeous vellum balloons!
I scribbled some varying shades of Copic Marker colors onto strips of vellum. then spritzed the vellum with some Rubbing Alcohol and LOOK AT THIS GORGEOUSNESS!
*swoon* so pretty!

then I used the dies to cut out the balloons, oh and also the Sky Borders Die for the clouds at the top of the card! SOOOOOOOOOO in love with this card!
