Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Today Hot Air Balloon Card

I used the Celebrate Today stamp set and matching Balloon Framelits Dies to create my card to share today.  I love that you can buy the stamp set and framelits in a bundle and save 15%!!  🙂

Celebrate Today - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by the Mojo Monday 381 sketch.

Screen Shot 2015-01-23 at 3.14.47 PMI started by adhering a panel from the Stacked With Love DSP Stack to a panel of Crisp Cantaloupe card stock with SNAIL, then to a Real Red card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Celebrate Today 2 - Stamp With Amy K

Then I stamped the basket image from the Celebrate Today photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Crisp Cantaloupe card stock, then to the card front with SNAIL and I adhered a wide strip from the Stacked With Love DSP panel across the card front with SNAIL.

Celebrate Today 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the balloon image from the Celebrate Today stamp set in Crisp Cantaloupe ink on a Whisper White panel, then cut it out with the Balloon Framelits Dies.  I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Celebrate Today stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink across the balloon, then adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Celebrate Today 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the little banner image from the Celebrate Today stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel and I cut it out with the Balloon Framelits Dies.  I adhered the banner with touches of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and snipped off the extra piece.  I added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish the card front.

Celebrate Today 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the celebrate sentiment from the Celebrate Today stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel, then adhered a leftover strip of from the Stacked With Love DSP for the inside of the card.

  1. Your card is so cool! Love the way the dsp just anchors your card together. It is getting harder to resist this set. This has to be my favorite card that you made with it 😉 There is so many awesome sets in the Occasions catalog, it’s so hard to pick, and with a card like this – so much harder, lol!! Amy, you make my shopping cart sooo full 😉

  2. Lol, I know….I’m getting there too 😉 Thanks goodness I can spread it out, although I want it ALL right now…so tough to resist!!
