Balloons Just Say Fun

Okay, not even I can believe how long it has been since my last post! It has been almost an entire month. I don’t know where the time has gone. But I was so happy to be in my studio this week. I have a stamping club meeting this Friday and I wanted to prepare some samples using the new Stamparatus from Stampin’ Up!

balloonsSo what do you think? Don’t you agree…balloons just say fun!?!? This card is definitely fun. And I love the clean, crisp feel that the white on white gives me too.

I used a lot of different products here, considering how “simple” it looks. The embossing folder for the background is called Hexagons from Stampin’Up! This is one of their 3D Dynamic Textured folders. It does a really nice, deep impression that really pops. My sentiment, Oh, Happy Day,is from a SU stamp set called Thoughtful Banners and it’s coordinating punch, in conjunction with the Stamparatus to make my banner. (The Stamparatus makes lining stamps up a breeze. I am so happy I got it.)  I used a MFT die for the stitched scallop rectangle and these fabulous balloon dies are ones I have had for quite some time and I’m not quite sure who makes them, sorry about that! My twines came from The Twinery, they have so many colors to choose from. And for the final touch, a little sequins to make it a party!

Hope you enjoyed my card. I’m off to try out another technique on my Stamparatus that should be made much easier using my new tool.

Happy Crafting!
