Hi Everyone! How was your Saturday? Ours was FABULOUS… our family got together!!! No, we didn’t touch (not even hug our Grands 😞)…. we were outside… and we had lots of laughs and giggles… it was great fun. Sigh – I am truly blessed… thank you God, for my family.
OK – today’s card… I was kind of on a roll making birthday cards and pulled out the Hooray To You stamp set. I have to say, this was inspired by an incredible Demonstrator, Mary Deatherage. I don’t remember her card very well, but I do remember she popped up a portion of the balloon. That’s all I remember about it though. So, here’s my ‘take’ for this card.
Very girlie, girlie, isn’t it? There’s a bit too much white space for my liking, but the Magenta Madness is bright and cheerful and happy looking. And… I love all the little bitty pearls :O)
I like using my Stamparatus for keeping things straight – and this is a big stamp, so that’s what I used – with Magenta Madness ink on Whisper White cs. And I stamped two of them, then cut down one of them, went over several of the little flowers with Wink of Stella for some glitz, then added Pearls Basic Jewels. The strip got dimesnionals and was placed over the larger balloon, matching the edges and flowers. I added Wink of Stella to several of the flowers beyond the strip then another Pearl Basic Jewel in the center of the bow. This panel was adhered to Magenta Madness cs with liquid glue. I stamped the ‘TO YOU’ sentiment from the Hooray To You stamp set and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch, put dimesnionals on the back and added it just under the larger strip. Then I trimmed the banner at the one end. Almost done… The Magenta Madness got dimensionals and attached to Thick Whisper White card base.
So simple and very girlie… what do you think? I’ll be honest, I haven’t completed the inside yet. I did adhere another panel of Magenta Madness cs to the inside, but I’m not sure what I want to do for the inside yet. For now, that’s it…
Thanks for stopping by.
May you have a beautiful day.
