Masterboard Monday

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

I have a birthday card for you today that I made using up some left over Masterboard. I seem to have a collected of such paper and card so will have more of these to show you soon.

Here is the original Masterboard and yes you have seen this before as I am now using the left over pieces.

I have cut them up into squares with black mats on top of a silver and black panel.

Next I stamped several of the balloons (Stamp by Tim Holtz).
I don't need so many for this project but they may come in useful for a later project.

Cut one of these out and used a ball stylus tool to shape the balloon.

Just checking that it stands out enough.

Then stamped a sentiment onto cloudy velum paper.

And so for the construction.

I also decorated the inside by stamping the balloon down the centre of the page and adding a sentiment.

And there we are finished ready for my dad's birthday.
Hope he likes it and hope you do too.
Happy crafting,
Angela x

  16. Thank you for your lovely comment Angela, and sorry to get your mouth watering with my cakes lol! My new heat gun works a treat. The other one kept cutting out and running at half-speed, and then it packed up altogether. I've still got my original old one which is one of those really powerful ones that blows all your embossing powder away lol! - but it was useful in the interim till the new one arrived.

    Have a great weekend.
