Neat & Tangled Birthday Release - Balloon Duo Stencil

Hey everyone!  Today I'm showing off my other new product in this month's Neat & Tangled birthday release, the Balloon Duo stencil.

This product was inspired by two of my most frequently pinned cards from this post.

That card was stamped, but I know not everyone is comfortable random stamping in layers, so I wanted to provide a way for folks to recreate the look more easily.

For this first card, I went with some yellows and oranges, moving my way up the panel from light to dark.

The sentiments are from the new Hooray mini set that is part of the birthday release.

I also wanted to try covering a whole panel and to go with a rainbow look, here's how it turned out:

On this one I paired the smaller sentiment from the Hooray set with the previously released Celebrate dies.

I love how easy it is to create with these.  If you took part in the birthday hop yesterday (and I hope you did because there are some big prizes up for grabs - it's going on all week so you have plenty of time to hop) there were some great samples where there was more white space between the balloons which is another great look.

That's all for me today, hope you enjoyed this look at the Balloon Duo stencils.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
