I used the two circle dies included in the Slimline dies to make some balloon stencils. After die cutting the circles, I just snipped a little triangle out from the bottom of each one to make them look like balloons. I used some copy paper, no special material required here! I sponged various sizes over my card stock using Catherine Pooler inks and die cut my panel using the stitched die. I die cut a white layer using the pinked die and adhered my stenciled piece directly on top. I stamped the sentiment from Happy Birthday Stamps directly on top of the balloons and then die cut the Birthday die from black card stock for some dimension.
I hope I have inspired you to make your own balloon stencil and don't forget you can use my special discount code below in the shop.
