Here I am again with a Friday Freebie. I hope you like this card. It’s made with the Balloon Celebration Bundle which consists of the Balloon Celebration Photopolymer Set and the Balloon Bouquet Punch. The stamp set is a 2 step one and photopolymer stamp sets lend themselves nicely to this type of stamping.

Here’s the how to:

  • Whisper White as your card base
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White to 14.3cm x 10cm
  • Using Soft Suede ink up your chosen sentiment and stamp towards the 1/3rd of the bottom of the piece of card – I did mine in the top 1/3rd bottom right
  • Using Bermuda Bay and the small cloud stamp, stamp 2 images on the card and 2 which are half off the card – one to the top and one to the left or whatever you prefer.  Stamp off with the same image a couple of times randomly, so you could do this after inking and stamping and image and then stamp off elsewhere on the card.
  • Using Bermuda Bay and the large cloud image, ink up the image and stamp off then onto the card, do this twice.
  • Now on some small pieces of Whisper White and the balloon outline stamps, stamp each balloon once in Melon Mambo
  • Ink up the base of each balloon in Melon Mambo, stamp off and then position on the outline image
  • Punch each balloon out using the Balloon Bouquet Punch and place Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of each balloon
  • Adhere the Melon Mambo balloons where desired
  • Put some Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) on the back of this stamped piece of card and adhere to the card base.

  • Cut a piece of card 9.5cm x 13.5cm for the right hand inside of the card
  • Using the small solid balloon, ink up with Melon Mambo and stamp on the bottom right, stamp again just above this first balloon twice, without re-inking.
  • On the envelope front stamp the same was as the inside on the front left of the envelope
  • Stamp once in the centre of the back of the envelope with the same balloon and Melon Mambo which has been stamped off first.

This is the first of a new weekly blog hop from the Latte Girls. Each week we’ll bring you projects featuring different products from the Stampin’ Up! range.

Some of the products available through Sale-A-Bration this year will be retiring soon – Hello, Sky is the Limit, Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper. So I’ve combined some of these retiring products with the Global Design Project #022 | Sketch Challenge. Here’s the sketch:

GDP022

I’ve turned the sketch to landscape and used the soon to retire Sale-A-Bration products – Sky is the Limit, Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper.

20160209_145533

I’ve used Smoky Slate as a base for this card and also as a strip of card across the centre with some Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim. The Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper is just perfect  to team with this stamp set with this side looking like it really is the sky and the reverse side is more an ombre effect. Both sides highly useful.

I’ve cut the circle using the Circles Collection Framelit Dies and used Basic Black Archival ink to stamp the sentiment, also from Sky is the Limit stamp set and the aeroplane which is hand cut and added to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Circle is also added to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

20160209_145552

I used a sponge to ink distress around the edges of the circle with Bermuda Bay. I’ve also used one of the other images from the stamp set with Bermuda Bay ink to stamp inside the card and on the outside of the envelope.

Now don’t forget you can get 1 Sale-A-Bration product free for every A$90 you spend from any of the current catalogues.

Now the next stop in the hop is the lovely Narelle Fasulo who has some wonderful projects to share with you.

This card would be lovely as a Congratulations on the birth of a daughter or even for a little girls birthday card.

The Balloon Celebration Photopolymer stamp set makes it so easy to make a variety of cards for different occasions. It’s available in the current Occasions Catalogue.

I’ve used Blushing Bride ink to stamp randomly over the front piece of card. I stamped the sentiment in Sift Suede and added Rhinestone Jewels.

20160201_164653

I’ve stamped the same balloon image in Blushing Bride in different ways on the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope.

I’ve added a piece of Whisper White card to both the card base which is Whisper White and to the inside of the card for writing a personal message.

Here’s another in my series of cards using the Balloon Celebration Photopolymer Stamp Set which is in the current Occasions Catalogue.

I used the balloon image and 5 different colours to randomly stamp on the card front. I’ve then cut a piece of Rose Red card on which to stamp the sentiment in Versamark and used Silver Emboss Powder and then heat set it.

20160201_164554

You know how I love to stamp inside the card and you can’t have a naked envelope. I often think a stamped image on the envelope gives the postal workers a smile and also tells the recipient it’s happy mail and to be opened immediately.

I used 3 of the colours and the same balloon image to stamp inside the card and on the outside of the envelope.

I often stamp off first (ink up the image and stamp on scrap paper, then stamp on the card stock). Sometimes these bold images look a bit ‘too much’ with straight ink so stamping off softens the image.

Each Friday I’m going to try to bring you a free card – how to. I hope you like this one and would love to read your comments.

I am just loving this photopolymer stamp set called Balloon Celebrations available from the Occasions Catalogue. I CASED this card from Google Images.

Here’s how I made it:

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Layer is Whisper White cut to 14.3cm x 10cm
  • Place star images onto an acrylic block and stamp in Crushed Curry – you can stamp off to gain different tones if you wish
  • Using Soft Suede, stamp the sentiment on the lower right hand corner.
  • Using Melon Mambo and the small balloon, stamp off on scrap paper first and then on the front of the card. Do the same with the larger balloon image, stamping it on the right of the first image. Then stamp the smaller image again to the right of the large image. You now have 3 balloons in a descending row.
  • Ink up the ribbon image with Bermuda Bay and stamp at the end of each balloon and 1 lower than the last balloon on the right and one going in the opposite direction to the other ribbons and towards the bottom of the layer.
  • On pieces of Whisper White stamp the balloon outlines in Crushed Curry – you need 1 large and 2 small. Using Crushed Curry again stamp the ‘speckled’ lower balloon image onto the images previously stamped. Now use the Balloon Bouquet Punch to pinch out your shapes
  • Place Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of each balloon and adhere to the front of the card.

20160202_141536a

I also stamped the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope using Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay.I stamped off with the balloons to gain a more muted tone of Melon Mambo.

Global Design Project #021 | Colour Challenge

Well this is my first foray into the Global Design Project Challenges and I’m hoping to make it a weekly event. It will help me work outside my comfort zone.

GDP021

This colour challenge was set by Brian King and once I looked at the colours I thought, I can do this. So here is my card:

I had so much trouble obtaining a good image of this card however after many attempts this is the best I could come up with.

20160202_143333a

I’ve used Wisteria Wonder as the card base with Whisper White as the front layer. I’ve been using the Balloon Celebrations Photopolymer Bundle to see how many different cards I could make with it. This is another in the series for the stamp set.

I inked up the ‘string circle’ image in Wisteria Wonder, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay to randomly stamp the image on the front layer.

20160202_141012a

I’ve used the same ‘string image’ to stamp on the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope.

I’ve used the ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment from the stamp set and Wisteria Wonder on Whisper White which is 1″ or 2.5cm wide and inserted it into the Triple Banner Punch. I backed that piece on Wisteria Wonder which is 1 1/2″ or 3.8cm wide and also punched with the Triple Banner Punch.

I adhered the front layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) and the banner has 2 Glue Dots either end and 2 Stampin’ Dimensionals in the centre.

The Balloon Celebration Photopolymer Stamp Set is one which may be used for many different occasions. My next few posts will use this lovely set.

Here I’ve used the set to create a baby boy Congratulations card. I’ve used the 2 different sized solid balloons combined with some stamping off.

20160201_164521

I used the smaller of the two balloon stamps to stamp on the inside of the card and on the outside of the envelope.

I added some Rhinestones randomly to the front of the card too. I also added a touch of Wink of Stella to each balloon as a highlight.

I hope you like this card and would love for you to leave me a comment.

It’s not a party without cake is it? This cake is guaranteed not to add any weight or other nasties to your diet but it will make you happy to receive it.

This is another card made at our team day last week with the lovely Leonie. Although it may look difficult, it wasn’t. Quite a few steps but once we got started it was quite straight forward. The sentiment on the front was coloured with markers and cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies before we stamped the cake at the top. The cake has a touch of the new Wink of Stella on the cream which makes it glitter beautifully. The candle was also coloured with markers and adhered using a Dimensional.

20160123_122931

Now the centre of the card is cut using the Party Pop-Up Thinlits dies and using the Big Shot Dies Brush makes it extremely easy to remove all the tiny bits.  Using Fast Fuse to adhere one side down in the middle first and then adding the Fast Fuse to the other side of the middle and closing the card ensures a nicely placed card centre.
