Clearly Besotted Teasers | Spring Birthday

Hello there and welcome to day two of the Clearly Besotted February 2022 Teasers. Today I am using the new Balloon Bunch Easter set. As the name suggests, it is perfect for cute Easter cards but for today's card, I thought it would be nice to create a birthday card with the set. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock and stamping the daffodil and tulip image from the Clearly Besotted Balloon Bunch Easter Stamp Set on to it using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The flowers were coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies section). 

On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the chick from the set, along with the balloon (so that it looks like he is holding it) and coloured them both with Copic Markers too and then fussy cut out with scissors. The panel was adhered to a 4.25" x 5" white card base with tape runner. The card is smaller so that I can have the balloon overhanging but it still fit in a standard sized envelope. 

the sentiment, from the Clearly Besotted Tiny Type Stamp Set, was stamped on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip using the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Labels Dies and added to the card below the flowers. The chick and balloon were then added on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the balloon and chick's nose.
