Multi-colored Honeycomb Balloon Embellishment

Honeycomb balloon Web2

LINK:  Hello, Monday 02.15.2016

This was one of my projects during the Winter 2016 Hop last week, featuring Basic Alpha (sentiment) and Up The Happy (balloons)

For those of you that were interested, I was finally able to complete a video for it and it aired yesterday over in the CLASSroom blog.  Just click on the link under the photo and it will take you straight to that blog post.  There’s some helpful tips and such, as well.

By the way, today is indeed the last day to enter the drawings for all the giveaways, so be sure to drop your name into the hat by leaving comments!  To start at the beginning of the hop, here’s a direct link to that post:  Essentials by Ellen Winter 2016 Release Hop

Hope you’re having a fab day! :)

Just playing around with an idea, using the new “Oh Frappé!” and the cloud from “Up the Happy!” stamp sets, from the release.

Beyond watercoloring with Peerless, there are really no techniques involved on this.

Essentials by Ellen Winter 2016 Release Hop

Thanks for hopping over here from Kimberly Crawford‘s blog! So glad you could make it! :)

I hope you’re enjoying the Essentials by Ellen Winter 2016 Hop–I’ve got a few projects to share with you, featuring a few of the new stamps and dies!


The watercolored floral makes a great backdrop to the greeting, but if you’re short on time, try going mono-chromatic:  Use a colored note card and ink/stamp the hydrangea in an ink tone a shade darker than the note card.  Finish off the card similar to what you see here and BAM!!! You’re done! :)



Featuring:  Mondo Hydrangea, Totally Awesome, Positive Word Dies

Featuring Basic Alpha, Up The Happy

Basic Alpha contains multiples of frequently used letters so you can spell out just about anything your heart desires! :)  I have another example with this alpha set HERE.  I do have a video in the works for the dimensional balloon, but I’ve been a bit up to the gills and just couldn’t get it all done in time…

ETA: Video for the honeycomb balloon can now be found HERE.
