Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Here’s another card using the pretty Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Balloons bundle. I used the large balloon with the Charming Sentiments stamp set and Bright and Beautiful designer series paper for a Bubble Bath and Fresh Freesia card. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.
We have a sketch challenge for our Blog Hop this week, and here’s the pretty sketch we’re using:
I adhered a striped panel of Bright and Beautiful designer series paper to the front of a Bubble Bath card base. I adhered another panel with little dots to a Fresh Freesia mat and adhered it to the card base with liquid glue.
I stamped the speckles for the large balloon from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Balloons photopolymer stamp set in Fresh Freesia ink on Basic White. I stamped the large solid balloon in Bubble Bath over the speckles and cut the balloon with the coordinating die. I cut a tassel from Fresh Freesia card stock and colored a length of white Baker’s Twine with a dark Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blend. I adhered the twine and tassel to the card with glue dots and popped the balloon on with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Fresh Freesia ink on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered the sentiment to the card front with dimensionals and finished the card with pink iridescent sequins.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Fresh Freesia ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the medium balloons from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Balloons stamp set in Bubble Bath ink and stamped the strings in Smoky Slate. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Bright and Beautiful DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
Bubble Bath and Fresh Freesia are so pretty together! The colors are so soft and I love how they layered to make the large balloon from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Balloons bundle.
