I don’t know about you but I have ALWAYS loved to scratch something off to reveal what is below it. Starting with Cracker Jacks and trivia questions to lottery tickets, it is always exciting to see what is below. So, I was delighted to get the inky antics scratch off stickers in this kit and my mind went a thousand different directions on what could be done with them and all of the cute sentiments.
I also saw this as an opportunity to use stamps from other sets because balloons go with everything! (sort of like glitter)
Anyhow I did two designs for you all with one being only items from the kit save for a different balloon shape from last September’s kit and if you did not have that then you could use just the ones in this set, the second design uses the bicycle from the Beautiful ride set from Simon’s Spring release.
The first design as above, can be used to mass produce even more cards and you can extend this to include different patterned papers in your stash as well as changing up the ink colors to be all in one family or match the season. Even if you use up all the supplies or the kit is sold out you can get the stamps and use whatever you have in your stash to make this cute and easy card with a surprise.
The second card invites you to use your imagination to take a look at other stamps in your collection and think about how balloons could fit in there, outside of the bicycle, I was thinking a park bench, bird or other critter or a wagon could easily be holding the balloons.
The above bicycle card also shows how you can easily vary the amount of coloring you do to create very different cards. You can watch the video here as usual and matching ink colors and supplies are listed below. If you have any questions please leave a comment.
