Ink to Paper - January Release Countdown - Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of the January Ink to Paper Release Countdown, friends! This month we will be sharing so many wonderful new products with you and included in the line up are stamp sets + dies geared towards birthdays! Up for today … Balloon Wishes, Border Bling: Dotted Skinny Frame, Inside Greetings: Birthday Wishes and On the Border: Sunburst Border Die!

**All of the new products will be available January 15th at 10pm EST!**


Balloon Wishes is up first! I had so much fun designing this set and was so excited when I received it in the mail. I'm a color lover and couldn't wait to stamp those watercolor striped balloons! There are two shaped balloons in the set and I chose the heart to create with for today.


 Orange Zest, Bright Buttercup, Hibiscus, Hawaiian Shores and Pure Poppy are the colors I used to stamp the stripes. I also created a colorful background for the sentiment 'COLORFUL', by stamping those same colors on a strip of white cardstock.


 Along the outside, I added a Hawaiian Shores border by die-cutting the new Border Bling: Dotted Skinny Frame! I added a few extra plain white hearts and a few sequins to complete my first card.


  On the Border: Sunburst Border Die is such a fun little die to create with! I created a sunbeam for the corner of my card by die-cutting it three times out of Hawaiian Shores, Berry Sorbet and Pale Peony. I layered those over one another and simple adhered it in the corner.


The sentiment is a mix of the new Inside Greetings: Birthday Wishes and 'Wish' is from an older set, Frame It Out: Wishes. To finish card #2 I added die-cut hearts, from Balloon Wishes, and a few clear sequins!


Thanks so much for popping in today. Hope to see you again tomorrow!

Melissa
