Stampin’ Up! Balloon Adventures

I used the Stampin’ Up! Balloon Adventures Bundle and the Birthday Banners stamp set to create my share for today.  If you’re here from Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Featured Artists, welcome, so glad you stopped by!

This card was really quick and easy to put together, I know, because I was under a deadline to get a card done and submitted to Amy, my up-line, by noon yesterday!  Stampin’ Up! has so many fabulous papers to help with the creativity process.  I happened to see a card in the 2017 Occasions Catalog that gave me some inspiration, too.  So, I pulled out my Cupcakes & Carousels DSP, some matching card stock, and put on my thinking cap!

I started with a Bermuda Bay card stock base and stamped it with the confetti ribbon image from Balloon Adventures in Bermuda Bay ink.  Next, I took a panel of Peekaboo Peach card stock and dry embossed it with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I pulled out the colorful banner paper from Cupcakes & Carousels DSP and stamped three curly balloon strings from Balloon Adventures in Early Expresso ink.

The largest balloon and bow were die cut from the new Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper, using the Balloon Pop Up Thinlets dies.  I created a back for the balloon with a scrap from the opposite side of the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP (banner pattern) using my Balloon Bouquet punch. (Yes, the largest balloon is the same size!)  The two smaller balloons are from the Birthday Banners stamp set.  One is stamped in So Saffron ink onto a panel of Very Vanilla and the other is Calypso Coral stamped onto a panel of Peekaboo Peach.  Both were punched out with the Balloon Bouquet punch.  I stamped the banner and sentiment using stamps from Birthday Banners, and die cut it with a die from the Bunch of Banners Thinlets.

For the inside, I punched out another large balloon from the Bermuda Bay Glimmer paper and added another bow.  And, I decided to decorate an envelope flap to go with the card!

Stampin’ Up! Foxy Friends Birthday Bear

Hi Stampers, today I have created a fun birthday card using the Foxy Friends bundle to create a Birthday Bear! I also used the Birthday Banners stamp set and a the new Balloon Adventures stamp set available January 4th.  Stampin’ Up! has so many fun birthday stamps it is difficult to just use one set!  

Birthday Bear

 

I started by stamping the two smallest balloons using the Birthday Banners stamp set.  I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to cut them out.  Next, I stamped the largest balloon using the new Balloon Adventures stamp set available on January 4th, and punched it too.
Birthday Bear

For the Birthday Bear, I punched out some Soft Suede using the Fox Builder Punch and rounded off the ears using my paper snips.  Then, the Foxy Friends paws were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Crumb Cake. I used the small circle die from the Gift Card Envelope & Thinlets Dies to cut the paws out.  Next, I cut out an oval for the nose/mouth area and attached it to the head, then used the face features stamp from Foxy Friends to stamp the eyes and nose.  Don’t you just love the birthday hat?  It is from the Party Animal Embellishments pack available on January 4th.  It contains Pacific Point birthday hats and Tangerine Tango Balloons.

 

Birthday Bear

The inside features a sentiment from Balloon Adventures and is stamped in Tangerine Tango ink.  

Birthday Bear

To complete the Birthday Bear card, I decided to stamp one of the other fun balloons from Balloon Adventures on the envelope front.

Card stock cuts and products used will be at the end of the post. (Minus any items available on January 4th)
