Pootler’s Design Team Balloon Builders Birthday Celebration Week #3


Welcome to the third week of June’s projects with the Pootler’s Design Team. As mentioned last week we will be using the Balloon Builders Stamp Set.

This weeks card is based on the reason I wanted this stamp set in the first place, “Sweets”, yes sweets!! I have seen a couple of examples of cards using the smaller balloon shapes in the set and they reminded me of jelly beans. So my card this week is a sweetie card, and no not all my cards on based on sweet treats.

I stamped three of the smaller balloon images in my three favourite colours, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise Classic Inks, on to a sheet of A4 Whisper White Cardstock. Creating a sheet of my own DSP, once dry I used my Clear Wink of Stella Brush Pen to add a bit of sparkle to my sweeties. I then trimmed this down to card fronts (3 7/8 inches x 5 5/8 inches) and a adhered them to a card base of Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise A4 Cardstock (cut at 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8 inches).

I took some A4 Vellum Cardstock and stamped a “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and heat embossed this with White Stampin Embossing Powder. I then flipped this over and on the backside I coloured my sentiment in with the co-ordinating Stampin Write Markers. I cut a banner shape at the bottom and then adhered this to my card front using some discreet Glue Dots and Fast Fuse. Finally I added a piece of Whisper White Thick Bakers Twine to finish off my card.

I think you will agree this is a bright, fun and sweet birthday card!? Don’t forget to pop back next week to see what I come up with next!
