We're celebrating with a blog hop, new release, shop discount and lots of giveaways! The new release includes 5 new stamp sets, 1 set of coordinating dies, 1 new stand-alone die, 2 new stencils and lots of new embellishments.

You next stop is Galina Filippenko

All bloh hop stops will have a giveaway and some will occur on blogs, while others will occur social media channels such as Instagram, Facebook and YouTube so be sure to read posts carefully and enter where applicable for multiple chances to win! (details about the giveaways is at the bottom of this post) 

For my card today I combined few products from the new release: 
Kobi makes a with and It's Your birthday stamp sets, along with Party balloons stencil and Speckled Sprinkles.
To make the card I started with piece of white card stock (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") and stenciled in the balloons using Reactive inks : Taffy, Berry Smoothie, Creamsicle and Fruit punch. Once done I stamped the greeting in black Versafine ink. 
I stamped Kobi with Intense black ink onto white card stock and colored with copics. Once done I die cut him.
Trimmed the balloon panel down to 3 3/4" x 5" and adhered Kobi using foam adhesive. 
I stamped the sentiment from Kobi makes a wish on Vellum using watermark ink, embossed in white, cut into a strip and adhered to the panel.

Next, I added some tine glue spots on the card and sprinkled some Speckled sprinkles. Let it sit for a minute and then shook off the excess. 
To finish off the card, I adhered the panel using black fun foam onto top folding black note card.
