Stampin' Up Shine On Balloon Bouquet All Occasions Cards III

We are pretty much supposed to have an all day rain today and I have some errands to run.  Ugh!

Today, I'll be sharing with you the third card in my All Occasions Card Series that I designed using Stampin' Up's Shine On Designer Series Paper, Balloon Bouquet Punch, Cherry On Top Washi Tape and the new Paper Pumpkin Monthly Kit Stamp Set called All About Everything.

Let's take a look:

LOVE that Bermuda Bay color!  

My card base is SU's Bermuda Bay Cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored and folded at 5-1/2"

My card front panel is SU's Shine On Designer Series Paper cut at 4" x 5-1/4" and adhered to my card base using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I evenly layered rows of SU's Cherry On Top Washi Tape onto a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock and then punched out balloons using SU's Balloon Bouquet Punch.

I took a piece of Bermuda Bay/Basic Black Thick Baker's Twine and pulled out all of the Bermuda Bay threads leaving just the black threads.  I taped one end of the baker's twine to the back of each balloon, wrapped it around each balloon's stem and taped it down on the back again leaving a good portion of the twine hanging down for the balloon's string. 

I adhered the two small balloons to the card front panel using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue and the large balloon using Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I used SU's new Monthly Paper Pumpkin Kit Stamp Set called All About Everything.  I stamped Happy Birthday on Bermuda Bay Cardstock with Black Memento Ink, cleaned my stamp, laid my stamp back over the sentiment and traced around it.  I then fussy cut the sentiment out.  Pretty neat, huh!!!  
I adhered my sentiment over the balloon strings on my card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

I randomly added sequins around my card using SU's Fine Tip Glue Bottle.

What fun DSP this is to play with!!!

Please come back tomorrow and I'll share with you the fourth card from my All Occasions Card Series using Stampin' Up's Shine On Designer Series Paper.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!


I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges and using them for their own card classes.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
