The Everything ABC Blog Hop- Letter B

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter B.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever  the crafter has chosen as their B element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you are at the beginning!

For my letter B today, I chose Balloon Ride!  It is a new paper that is coming up in the new CMTH Idea Book that is due to go live on February 1.
 I got the idea for this card from Susan Gardner-Williams so I have to give her credit!  The balloons are cut from the Artiste Cartridge on page 70.  I cut them at 4 inches.   I used the patterned paper on the insides and just scored it down the middle and adhered them together!  The fun thing too is Close to My Heart came out with a video about this too!

The edges of my cardstock is sanded to give it a distressed look and the the stripe is one of our new wash tapes adhered onto white paper to emphasize the color.  I the Happiness Lives Here sentiment is from the Love Life stamp.  

The one other sneak peek on this is the new Baker's Twine Neutral Metallic Assortment.  You can't see it very well with the photography but there is a metallic thread running through those balloon strings!

I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek and the rest of the blog hop!  I also entered this in the Southern Girls Challenge to use something new.  Check back later for more sneak peeks!
