Send a Happy Wish!

Today we are sharing a gorgeous balloon shaker card by Ellen! This fun balloon themed card would for a spring Birthday greeting or just to send to a friend to lift them up!

She created a fun Balloon shaped shaker window using our Balloon Shaker Die Set. This die set includes the balloon shape as a solid shape and a frame, which makes creating shaker windows simple! The die set also includes a string for the balloon and some small confetti shapes that you can fill inside. Ellen used the small confetti shapes combined with sequins to fill her shaker. She also used the die cut word "Wish" from the same die set.

She used our Balloons Stencil with multiple colors of ink to create a colorful balloon background! She has some tips on how to do this technique below. The purple scallop edged frame was die cut out using our Frames & Flags Die Set.

Tips on using multiple colors on a stencil!

Below we have some tips from Ellen on how to create a fun multicolor background with a stencil:
  1. Draw all the balloons on a piece of masking paper with the help of the stencil and a pen.
  2. Cut out a square around the balloons you drew and then cut out the balloon itself. You don’t need to cut it out perfectly but not too wide.
  3. Mask off the balloons with the same size and go over it with inks
We hope you are inspired to try to create some colorful stenciled backgrounds of your own! If you do, make sure to share them with us by using #newtonsnook on instagram or posting them in our Create & Share group on Facebook!
