Stampin' Up Balloon Celebration

Let The Balloons Fly

Birthday Card made with 110# Whisper White card stock base, I cut a curve off the bottom of the front and poked holes for interest then backed it with some pretty Kaleidoscope polka dotted paper.  Balloons were stamped in Strawberry Slush and Primrose Petals, Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry and Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.  Strings were drawn in with a Stampin' Dazzle Silver Marker.

Stampin' Up Botanical Blooms

Old Olive card stock base cut with the new Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.  Matching Designer Paper "Botanical Gardens.  Leaf is stamped and cut from Mossy Meadow.  Flowers were cut from the same Botanical dies and with a touch of Cajun Craze ink with Jewels Basic Rhinstone added to the centers.  Sentiment is from February 2015 Paper Pumpkin "Layers of Gratitude".

Inside of the card was stamped with "Hello" from Stampin' Up 2016 Sale-A-Bration set Hello, free with any $50 purchase from Stampin' Up beginning January 5, 2016.  Flowers are from the Botanicals for You set (another freebie choice with a $50 order)

For this card I used 110# Whisper White and Basic Black card stock.  The background stamp sets used are:  Perpetual Birthday Calendar (Watercolored sky) and Wonderland (tree tops).  Sky and clouds were stamped in Soft Sky.  The airplane was stamped in Basic Black and cut out, dimensionals hold it in the sky.  Frosted Sequins embellishments add texture and interest to the sky.

Stampin' Up Honeycomb Happiness Blue Bird

I stamped the bird from Honeycomb Happiness (2016 Sale-A-Bration) in Basic Black onto Soft Sky card stock and shaded him with the Soft Sky Marker, then colored his beak and feet with Pumpkin Pie Marker, cut him out and glued him to the Whisper White after stamping the balloon first.  I then stamped the balloon onto Daffodil Delight and cut it out and glued it over the stamped image, and added white gel pen for a hightlight.  Sentiment was made using the Alphabet Rotary Stamp.
