Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #025 - Balloon Celebrations!

Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #025  Balloon Celebrations!

Balloon Celebrations card, Balloon Punch, Colour Challenge, Stampin Up,

This time for the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge we have a colour challenge! Lovely bright ones too.  Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Lemon Lime Twist.

These colours shouted celebrations to me so I reached for the Balloon Celebration stamp set and the matching Balloon Bouquet Punch.

The card base is in Whisper White with a Lemon Lime Twist layer. The top layer is Whisper White which I have run through the Sequin Embossing Folder in the Big Shot.

I have punched out the balloons, two of each colour and stamped the balloon shading in the same colour ink to give a tone on tone effect. some of them are glued flat and some have foam Dimensionals behind then to give height.

I cut the "Celebrate" out, in Bermuda Bay using the Celebrate You Thinlit Dies and anchored the balloons from the top usng Gold Metallic Thread for the strings. I added a few rhinestones too for a little added sparkle.

I have stamped the inside of the card too using the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set  in Bermuda Bay ink - I just love the font in this set. 

This could be a congratulations card or a birthday. The Balloon Celebration stamps and Balloon Duet Punch are SO versatile and a great one to have in your stash for all occasions. There are two other stamp sets that goes with the punch too, giving even more bang for your buck. They are Happy Birthday Gorgeous and Birthday Banners.
