Well that's the name of the next stamp set I thought I would play with. It's a quick birthday card that's perfect for a little boy. The only reason I say that is because I made it in blue, but of course the stamps set could be used for any birthday, really a whole lot of other things. Maybe a cheer you up card, missing you card! Well the sky's the limit. What I really liked was it took less than 10 minutes to make.
Here it is! The set is from the Up, Up & Away on page 63 of the 2011/12 IB& C catalogue. It's hard to see here but of course I had to use some dazzling details on the balloons.
I also used the color coach to choose the colors. I feel sometimes I just don't know what colors to put together and this tool is exceptional. All I did was choose my main color - tempting turquoise and then found that color on the chart. It then list the other colors that work well with it.
Here's a close up of the balloons, maybe you can see all the BLING!!
Well I just had to show one more! Although this is a gorgeous card, focus on the greeting. I just LOVE the frame surrounding the sentiment. This was made with the Textured Impression Embossing Folders found on page 218 of the 2011/12 IB& C catty. It's super cool because you get two folders in this package. Check it out!!!
I used a background stamp here and the leaves from Gently Falling set, which is a (two step) stamp set. I embossed the leaves with gold and then cut them out. Of course my favorite part is the greeting with the embossed frame around it.
Here's a close up!!
OK stampers, until next time when I have a few more moments. Have a wonderful evening!!
