Release Countdown 4 - Inspiration by Anika and Christine

Hello crafty friends,

it's countdown-time! Only 4 days left until the new products will be available at our store.  Yaaaay!
If you missed out our introduction-inspiration-video - check it out here You'll get ideas on how to use different stamp in the sets and how o combine them

Today is Anni's and my turn. Before we get started I'd like to show you what's waiting for you during the next days:

Tuesday:       Countdown "3" Inspiration by Kelly and Linda
Wednesday:  Countdown "2" Inspiration by Anja and Samantha
Thursday:     Countdown "1" Give-Away-Time!
Friday:          Countdown "0" IGNITION!!!! Sets will be released at 8am CET (2am EST)

Time to start:
Anni created this aaa-do-ra-ble  birthday card using Monster Party and 29 again. See, even the sentiments from 20 again fit into the flag! She stamped the balloon imahe twice, so clever! Her coloring is amazing, look at those vibrant colors! She used Polychromos pencils by Faber Castell - and made my jaw drop!

Take a look at the background - can you see our clouds-stencil? She used it with some embossing paste.

I'd like to share two cards that I made using the new Balance set. This is a valentine's set, but it's pretty versatile. (If you watched the video you know what I am talking about ;) )
The first card is a playful one with patterned papers and bold colors:

The second one is a little more elegant and clean, using the offset-stamping technique that I already showed in the video. The colors are also a little more muted.

And the third cad keeps in really simple.Less stamping, less color, less dimension - a really quick and easy card:

What is not to love about these sets?
Here's the full release again, to take a closer look:

What's your favorite set in this new release? Or your favorite image? Do you create valentine's cards? (It's not a tradition here in Germany, but there are so many reasons to say I love you to your loved ones!)

Have a great day!
