Mint Owl Studio - August Release Day Blog Hop!!!

Hello everyone,

Welcome to our release day blog hop!  For this release, we have something exciting to share with you.  We now have dies!  There are two die sets for this month and I think you'll love them.  


I used the Birthday Bash stamp set today and I just love these balloons.  They take up most of a card front so you can create lost of great clean and simple cards as I did today.  

I die cut the front panel from a rectangle die and stamped the image with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  


I then took my watercolour paints and coloured them in rainbow order.  I challenged myself to go for a loose watercolour as I don't.  I like staying in my comfort zone and that is inside the lines!

I took a piece of vellum and heat embossed the sentiments in white and black embossing power and adhered it to the panel and the the panel to the base.




Hop Order:
Coralynn - you are here!
