Stampin' Up Shine On Balloon All Occasions Cards II

What a gorgeous day again today.  Supposed to be almost 70 and ya' just gotta' love that sunshine.  Tomorrow will bring rain.

I went to look for morale mushrooms yesterday; but, it's still too early.  I kicked up 3 deer and one Canadian Goose; who let everyone and his brother know that I was coming.  Gosh, they are LOUD honkers!

I'm really excited as I get to pre-order from Stampin' Up's 2016-2017 Annual Catalog today.  I cannot believe the amazing products that are coming out this time around.  If you think this little Pooch from SU's Beautiful Ride is cute; wait until you see the new cat and dog fur baby sets available June 1st!!!  Too Stinkin' Cute!!!

My second card of my All Occasion Card Series this week uses Stampin' Up's Shine On Designer Series Paper, Balloon Framelits and Balloon Celebration, Beautiful Ride and Sky is the Limit Stamp Sets. 

Let's take a look:

This little fur baby of a pooch has been all over on cards; in car windows, bicycle baskets and going for a hot air balloon ride.  Isn't he precious!

My card base is Stampin' Up's Watermelon Wonder Cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored and folded at 5-1/2".

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

Using SU's Balloon Framelits Dies, I die cut the BIG balloon from Watermelon Wonder Cardstock.  I stamped the Balloon's Basket in Watermelon Wonder Ink and die cut it out with the Balloon Framelits Dies.

I stamped the dotted swirls from SU's Balloon Celebration Stamp Set on the balloon with Watermelon Wonder Ink.  I adhered the basket to the balloon using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I stamped the little dog from SU's Beautiful Ride Stamp Set on SU's Whisper White Cardstock using Memento Black Ink.  I fussy cut the dog out and adhered him in the balloon's basket using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

Using Stampin' Dimensionals, I adhered the basket to my card front panel.

I adhered some enamel dots from Sale-a-Bration and one from SU's Perfect White Accents to my balloon.

I fussy cut some of the foil clouds out of another piece of the Shine On DSP and adhered them randomly to my card front panel using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I stamped my sentiment from SU's Sky is the Limit Stamp Set in Black Memento Ink on SU's Kraft Cardstock and trimmed out a banner at 1" x 2-1/2".  I sponged around the edges using Watermelon Wonder Ink and adhered it to my card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

That's all I have for today!  Please come back tomorrow for another card in my All Occasions Card Series.

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!

If you are interested in purchasing Stampin' Up products, you can order from me on-line at and please choose me, Lynn Gauthier, as your Demonstrator.
