For this hop, we’re creating BALLOON themed cards to celebrate!
Today, I made two cards using this fun cue card!
I started by Rose Gold heat embossing the Anemone Garden stamp on watercolor paper. Then I painted each anemone using Peony, Lemon Yellow and Tangerine Color Bursts. The leaves were painted using a combination of Sap Green and Terre Vert Color Bursts.
Once I finished painting I set the panel aside to dry and stamped my heart shaped balloons using Beach Blondie, Peach Blossom and Hollywood Star dye inks to match my floral color palette. After I finished stamping the balloons, I used the coordinating die to cut each balloon out. I also cut out six additional balloons from vellum paper.
Next I rose gold heat embossed the banner from our Basic Banners set and then die cut it using the coordinating die. Then I taped on some metallic thread to each cardstock balloon. Next I proceeded to pop up each cardstock balloon. I then tucked the vellum balloons among the cardstock balloons using liquid adhesive making sure that those areas where the liquid adhesive was applied were the areas tucked away under the other balloons. Next I taped down the thread onto the watercolored panel. Then I popped up my sentiment banner.
For my top folding A2 horizontal cardbase, I applied a strip of Burnished Rose Gold Foil Tape to the top edge. I adhered my watercolor balloon panel to my base and then finished off this card by adhering our Clear Dew Drops in 7mm and 5mm sizes.
I started off by stamping each scene element from our Park Life set on cardstock using our copic friendly Caviar Hybrid ink. Then I colored each element using copic markers. Once I finished coloring, I die cut everything using coordinating dies.
Next I stamped the fountain scene onto cardstock using our light Crystal Pewter Dye Ink. I added stitching to the edges of our scene panel using the largest die in our Double Stitched Rectangles (large) set. I then popped up my Park Life elements onto the scene panel with foam tape. Lastly, I added our Clear Dew Drops in 7 and 5mm sizes.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post and videos! Continue to hop for a chance to win some great prizes! Your next stop is Sherrie Mannion.
