The Lost Balloon

Today's card features another recent charity shop find...a set of 'cloud' edge dies...brand unknown as they were not in their original packaging. I started by stamping an old Lili of the Valley bunny stamp called 'The Lost Balloon' on to a kraft card blank. I coloured it using watercolour pencils, then added some Glossy Accents to their balloons. I stamped a sentiment (from the 'What This!' set by Anita Jeram for the Colorado Craft Company) on to a snippet of white card, then used one of the cloud egde dies to cut the bottom edge, before adding it to the top of the card.

Challenges for this card:


  1. Absolutely love how you have colored those darling bunnies on the kraft card, Helen. The shiny balloons are fun, too. Thank you so much for joining the challenge at Allsorts.

  2. Love, love your delightful cluster of bunnies. They look fab on the Kraft, such gorgeous colouring. Thanks for sharing and playing along with us at AAA Cards this week Helen.
