Balloon Celebration: Birthday card without balloons!


If you read my blog often enough,  you may have heard me say often that I just LOVE versatile stamp sets. I love a stamp set that can do more than it looks like it can. The Balloon Celebration stamp set is one of those! When you look at the stamps, you may only see balloons. But, when you have a good look, you may see this….a dandelion!

Balloon Celebration, hand made, birthday card, Stampin Up, Soft Falling Textured Impression Embossing folder, dandelion, glitter ribbon

How to Make It: 
1.    Cut the card base, score and fold
2.    Take a large acrylic block and dab the Pool Party ink pad onto the surface, spray with water from the Stampin’ Spritzer and then place the Shimmery White cardstock onto it to transfer the ink; allow to dry 
3.    Cut the Pool Party piece and run through the Big Shot in the Softly Falling TIEF, adhere to the card base with SNAIL adhesive
4.    Stamp the sentiment onto the card front
5.    Once the Shimmery White layer is dry, stamp the ‘flower’ using the stem stamp and piecing together the small and large individual ‘seeds’ to create the flower 
6.    Adhere to the Basic Black mat and adhere to the card front
7.    Use Tear & Tape adhesive to add a strip of Pool Party Glitter ribbon to the card front
8.    Then use a Glue Dot to add a Botanical Garden Jewel
9.    As a final touch, use Clear Wink of Stella to add some sparkle to the stamped image
