Balloons for all occasions!

So I've had several birthday cards to make in April and I had a new punch to play with!
The balloon punch from Stampin' Up! is great for so many occasions and great to use alongside other stamps! So here's a few of the balloon theme cards I've made already for some special people in my life.

First up its my Dads birthday today, so I created this card using a fab little stamp from amazon to create the camera background, then the balloon punch and some silver mirror card to create the balloon decoration.


Next up is a card for Nathan who I work with at Nathans tea rooms. I actually used a Christmas stamp set here for the cute little penguin! I love this stamp set and knew I'd end up using it outside of Christmas!! I saw a similar card on Pintrest here. I love pintrest, its my guilty little pleasure when I'm in bed and everyone else is asleep!

 
 
Next is a card for my grandad from last week, It was my first play around with the balloon builder punch and party pants stamp set! This simple layout would be fab for all ages and would work in all different colour combinations. I can see me making more of these!
 

And last but certainly not least was this card I made for my two friends Andrew and Hayley who have just bought their first home together! I didn't have anything to specifically say "good luck in your new home" but as they love dogs I figured a dog holding balloons would work instead! The dog stamp set is another new addition to my collection and I have to say I love it so much! I cant wait to have a play with some more ideas I have floating around!


I will be sharing my other cards as they are received by their new owners,
