I used the Beautiful Balloons stamp set and the Wanted To Say Dies to create my project for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We’ve got a theme challenge this week and this is what I made for it.
Here is the theme that we’re all using today:
I started by running a strip of Post It Note Tape across the score line on the Thick Basic White card base. Then I stamped the balloon image from the Beautiful Balloons photopolymer stamp set in Bubble Bath, Pool Party and Fresh Freesia inks across the card front.
I cut a panel of Bubble Bath paper from the Soft Shimmer Paper Combo Pack with the banner dies from the All That Dies and then adhered the die cuts to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I cut a panel of Basic White card stock with the scalloped circle die from the All That Dies and then stamped the confetti image from the Beautiful Balloons stamp set in Pool Party ink across the panel. I adhered the panel with Stampin’ Seal to the card front.
I cut a panel of Basic White card stock and a panel of Lost Lagoon paper from the Soft Shimmer Paper Combo Pack with the Wanted To Say Dies and adhered the die cuts together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (you can also use Adhesive Sheets if you apply them to the Shimmer Paper before cutting it). I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added three Fresh Freesia dots from the Tinsel Gems Three-Pack to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment and balloon image from the Beautiful Balloons stamp set in Lost Lagoon, Fresh Freesia, Bubble Bath and Pool Party inks on a panel of Basic White card stock to finish the inside of the card.
