Sweet Stamp Shop Grand Re-Opening

Hey everybody, I've got some fun news today -- Sweet Stamp Shop is having a grand re-opening event that starts TODAY! Head over to the Sweet Stamp Shop blog to get more details. I know there will be giveaways and discounts, and you don't want to miss their brand new website!

To help kick things off there are dozens of designers (including me!) that have created a project using Sweet stamps. Be sure to visit all of the designers blogs and leave a comment for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the shop!

On to the project I'd like to share today.  I used 2 stamp sets on my card, Balloons and Happy Birthday. Both are great staples in my stash of stamps. Birthday cards are by far the type of card I make the most, and with these sets there are endless possibilities for card designs.

I stamped the balloons with various shades of Memento ink. I like that the ink impressions weren't completely solid with these balloons. It makes them look a bit transparent and the balloons overlap nicely. After stamping the balloons and sentiment I added some silver rub-on stars by Pink Paislee, give the card some shimmer.

Remember to leave a comment here for your chance at a $25 gift certificate to Sweet Stamp Shop. Head back to the blog to visit the other guest designers, and you'll want to follow Sweet Stamp Shop on Facebook and Instagram to hear about all of the ways Nicole will be celebrating her grand re-opening this month! (Yes -- ALL MONTH LONG!) I'm so excited, aren't you!?!
