Pootler’s Design Team Balloon Builders Week #1


I am thrilled to tell you that I am taking part in the Pootler’s Design Team Challenge this month! Myself and four of my fellow Pootler’s will be creating a project every Thursday through June using the same stamp set sent to us by none other than the lovely Pootles herself!


So this month’s stamp set is the Balloon Builders set. To be honest this stamp set had crept past me in the catalogue but after a lovely swap I was given at Onstage Telford and seeing some fun projects on Pinterest it made its way on to my wish list, so I was super excited when I received it from Sam, happy days!!


For this weeks project and with the launch of our brand new catalogue yesterday I decided to also showcase the gorgeous new In Colours 2016-18 by creating a set of birthday cards stamped in our new colours along with the co-ordinating cardstock and absolutely gorgeous Ruched Ribbon.


Taking five pieces of Whisper White A4 Cardstock (3 7/8 inches x 5 5/8 inches) I stamped the main larger balloon image in each of the new In Colours across my Whisper White piece, firstly 1st generation stamping and then 2nd generation stamping and so on.


Then using the Happy Birthday sentiment, which fits snugly in the balloon shape, I stamped the darker balloons using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Stampin Embossing Powder on the Emerald Green and Dapper Denim pieces and the others in Silver Stampin Embossing Powder.


Breaking out my new In Colour 2016-18 Stampin Write Markers I drew on some strings for my balloons. Using some more new goodies I wrapped a piece of Ruched Ribbon around my card front and tied it in a bow (sort of). I then adhered this to my card bases in each of the new In Colours with Stampin Dimensionals.

June is an epic month for hostesses!! For each event a hostess has with 350 €/£250 or more in sales, that hostess will receive 35 €/£25 in Extra Stampin’ Rewards.


That’s right! Every new recruit who joins my team this month will get two FREE stamp sets in their Starter Kit. That’s an added value of up to 126 €/£92, depending on which stamps you choose. It’s a pretty big deal since that’s the same month we launch the new catalogue and the new stamps inside it. Plus, anyone hosting an event with me in June can also get Extra Stampin’ Rewards, which can be used towards their Starter Kit. Have the stars aligned or what?
