Studio Katia Turns Three Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Day Two of the Studio Katia Turns Three blog hop! You should have arrived from Nina-Marie’s blog and Amy’s blog is your next stop. If you get lost you can find the full hop list below or visit Studio Katia Blog! (To see the inspiration from Day 1, click here!)

My card project today features three fun new products from Studio Katia: the Birthday Balloon Duo Stencils, the Shaker Balloon Die and the Pastel Rainbow Confetti. Plus, the “Let’s Party” sentiment is from the Kobi Makes a Wish stamp set.

I usually don’t go into the pastel color arena, but when I saw the pastel tons of the confetti, I thought it would be fun to pick some colors to match, and create some translucent balloons using the stencil.

Here is the video showing you how I created the card:
