Happy New Year 2018! Coloring Transparent Balloons

 Hello Crafters! 

Happy New Years!
I hope you had a wonderful night celebrating with those who mean the most to you. 
I rang in the year with my family including one very over tired four year old haha. 


Before we get into the card I wanted to give you a heads up on the Celebration stamp set I used for this card. 

***This promotion is over. However, Honey Bee Stamps still has such adorable good quality stamps I still encourage you to check out the shop!***
Melissa, the owner of Honey Bee Stamps is celebrating her birthday (Happy Birthday Melissa) and is generously giving this stamp set away free for today (and yesterday but what's past is past people) if you spend $36 in the shop. It's a $14.99 value so basically if you spend $36 you get $50 worth of product. Sound like a deal to me :) 
You can visit the shop here


For my first card of the new year I wanted to include everything I love. Copics: check. Masking: check. Rainbows: check. Bold color with black and white: check. Glitter for  days: check. 
Clearly, I'm in love with the end result. 


I did lots of stamping and masking so I could color my "celebration box" with transparent balloons. No matter how many times I've done this technique I still love it. It adds a bit of realism that I adore. 

You can watch the whole card in the video below and hear a slightly inappropriate story. 
Maybe. 
haha. 


Seriously, I figured Gram would watch TV and my peanut would be in bed. ooops. 
I love the way the card came out anyway. 
So, I'm winning at that. 


Thanks so much for stopping by! 
I'll be back soon with a new video and maybe a more appropriate story :)
