Playing with Hourglass

Hello lovelies!

I'm here with a fun, bright card today, that uses the recently released Simon Says Stamp Hour Glass stamp set, the Medium Dots Stencil and the Birthday Balloons Sentiment set!

Here is the card:

I used a Gelly Roll pen for the 'string' holding the pennant. It doesn't show up so well in this shot, but that little touch of glitter really works well.

For the background, I used the Medium Dot Stencil, and a sponge dauber, and created my own, fun background. I love doing this, because I know it will match the front panel perfectly (because I used the same Memento Luxe Ink)

I think this could work well for lots of different birthday or celebration-just change the sentiment-events, being perfect for a child's, or even for a guy in your life (who says masculine has to be dark and serious?!)

Very easy to do!

I hope you like it!

I'll be back soon with some more cards from my playing session with the new Simon Says Stamp release goodies!  If you want to see the entire release, go HERE.

I love the background! I haven't tried it yet with the Luxe inks, just dye. You are so brave!
