I wanted to share a fun card with you today, using a super cool technique that I learned at the Stampin' Up! On Stage Convention.
I used the "Balloon Celebration" stamp sat and coordinating "Balloon Bouquet" punch.
The cardstock colors are rich razzleberry, bermuda bay, island indigo and whisper white. I used the same inks with some "Schoolhouse" designer paper.
I wanted to note that I only inked up the word "celebrate" from the "lets celebrate" stamp. I did this by coloring it with the island indigo marker. You can also simply ink only that word when you ink it up on the ink pad.. wipe off any extra ink with a wet paper towel.
Check out the "puffy" balloons.
Glenda Travelstead shared this technique with us during Convention in SLC.
Doesn't it look so cool?
All you need to do this is a paper piercing tool and a piercing mat. Roll the rounded end of the tool around the edges of the balloon, until the edges start to curl a little. Then simply place a dimensional under the balloon and attach it to the card.
Here's a close up for you...
I love the dimension and how it really looks like a real live balloon.
A darling little bow made with the "Bow Builder" punch is the perfect accent to
add even more dimension and puff.
So what do you think? Are you going to give this balloon dimension technique a try?
I hope so!
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
