Balloons and Holders

Hello everyone and welcome to the Eureka! Stamps Blog Hop.
Today we are sharing some of the fabulous balloon and holder stamps that Eureka!  has available.

If you have come from Dawn's blog you are on the right path.
I'm sure she has a wonderful project to share with you.
If you have just happened onto the hop, you should probably start at the beginning.
Hop on over the beginning at the Eureka! Stamps Blog.
If you get lost along the way or a link doesn't work, you can hop right back there where all the participating blogs are listed.

Now on with my projects.
I am having so much fun working with these images and as soon as I saw Noah and all the different animals, I knew I wanted to create with them.
I need to apologize as this project isn't quite finished.  It needs to be put into a frame, but I don't have one handy at the moment.
I stamped all the images onto watercolor paper and colored them with watercolor crayons. 
The background is also done with watercolor crayons and paper.
The boat is freehanded onto card stock then colored and cut out.
I fussy cut all the pieces and adhered them with foam tape.
I tied a piece of string to each balloon and attached them to Noah's hand so they wouldn't float away.
I love how this turned out.  Hope you do too.
There are many more animals in the Eureka! Balloon and Holder colletion, so if you don't see your favorite, pop into the shop and see what else is there.

My 2nd project is a card done with the Pirate Balloon Holder and the Parrot Balloon.
I used the same techniques for stamping, coloring and cutting as the other project, then made a card with the images. 
I used some Cosmo Cricket sticker for the "Ahoy Matey"

All the images I used for these projects are listed below and are available at Eureka! Stamps.  There are lots of fabulous images in the balloon/holder category as well as in the rest of the store, so pop in and see what you might like.

Now leave a comment if you wish and head over to see what fabulous project
Roxie has to show you.  I'm sure it will be worth the trip.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have enjoyed seeing my projects.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!

I love Kristie! Those animals are wonderful with Noah, I didn't even see him.
LOVE the animals
The peg legged pirate and parrot is hilarious.

Those animals are darling. What a cute idea to frame that! My craft room flooded a couple weeks ago and we thought we had it all dried out and then found that the water seeped farther under the stairs than we realized. Had to haul everything out again! No crafts for me. :(
