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!

    That is awesome Jari! I love the designer paper that you used layered over the embossed and stamped background. And that glittery balloon tops your card off perfectly! 🙂
