Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Today CAS Balloon Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Today stamp set and matching Balloon Framelits to create a super quick birthday card to share today.

Celebrate Today - Stamp With Amy K

My card layout was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #184.

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 2.00.06 PMThe colors for my card were inspired by TGIF Challenges #01.

I started by taping a panel of Crushed Curry and a panel of Calypso Coral card stock together (just used a little Scotch Tape on the back), then embossing them with the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL, then to a Pool Party card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Celebrate Today 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the little banner from the Celebrate Today photopolymer stamp set in Calypso Coral ink on a Whisper White panel and I cut it out with the matching framelit from the Balloon Framelits set.  I colored the polka dots and stripes on the banner with my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker, then adhered the banner to the card front with touches of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Celebrate Today 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the balloon image from the Celebrate Today stamp set in Pool Party ink on a Whisper White panel, then stamped the birthday sentiment over the image in Calypso Coral ink.  I cut the balloon image out with the matching Balloon Framelit, then tied a strand of Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine around the bottom of the balloon and adhered the balloon to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Celebrate Today 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I ran a tiny bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue down the strand of Baker’s Twine and I adhered it to the card front, then I adhered a small strand of Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim under the balloon with a Glue Dot.  I added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish the card front.

Celebrate Today 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the balloon images from the Celebrate Today stamp set in Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry inks on a Whisper White panel inside the card.
