Give Me THREE "YAY"s

Hi, Lisa here today sharing some cards
 I created using a couple of the newest additions to the Drive By Crafts Store. 

 I am in love with these new stamp sets.
On this card, I stamped the largest circle from Altenew's Halftone Circles up in the corner of the card front.  Then I took a pen and drew lines to make it a balloon.  Lastly, I used Altenew's Celebrate stamp set to stamp the sentiments on the circle.  I love how this turned out and want to make a set of these in different colors to have on hand for birthdays. 
 Here, I made a Latch Card. 
I made a gatefold card base. Just took my 4 1/4 x 11" piece of cardstock and scored at 2 3/4 and 8 1/4. I stamped the front in VersaMark ink using Altenew's Halftone Circles.  Next, I die cut My tag using both dies from SugarPea Designs' SugarCut - Beautiful Bauble making a frame. Then I cut out just the center from white cardstock.  
 I adhered the red bauble tag frame with foam tape only to the back of the top side of the frame so it would not adhere below the gatefold line.  Then, I stamped my circle and sentiments using Altenew's Halftone Circles and Celebrate on my stitched circle.  I adhered foam tape to only the bottom half of my circle on the back  So it makes a latch on the front of the card and holds it closed until gently released from the front.  
 On the inside of my card, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 5 1/4 x 4.
I stamped it with the Altenew's Halftone Circles and Celebrate to tie into the front of the card and adhered inside. 
First I made my card base of this card 4x 5 1/2.  I stamped circles in different sizes and colors (rainbow colors, my fave) using Altenew's Halftone Circles then stamped the sentiment on the circles using Altenew's Celebrate.   I made a black strip and embossed the rest of my sentiment with white embossing powder.  I adhered my black sentiment strip so it hung over the sides equally by 1/8".  I want to make more of these using different color combos and ombre.
