The inspiration for today’s card is from an advertisement.  We get them from everywhere!  But I was surprised by this one and how perfectly it works with the Beautiful Balloons Bundle.

Stamps and Dies

The Beautiful Balloons is such a fun Bundle.  The dies are wonderful and add more than just the balloons.  Although I did not use any of the extras here.  The three balloons are stamped and die cut.  For the largest one I die cut from Lost Lagoon card stock and then stamped the little stars with Lost Lagoon Ink.  But the other two balloons are stamped and then die cut.  They are Lemon Lolly and Parakeet Party.

The sentiment is also from the stamp set.  There are a couple of different sentiments to go along with the balloons.  I really like this one and that it is long.  It fit the bottom of the layer perfectly to fill in white space.


The idea of this card was to focus on the balloons.  And I only needed a small bit of DSP for the gift box.  It could have come from anywhere, but I chose this piece from the Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper.  This 6X6 pack is part of the Bright & Beautiful Suite of products which includes the Bundle, the DSP, and the Acetate Celebration paper.

The card base was chosen from the DSP as the brightest of the colors.  It is Berry Burst.  The Lost Lagoon balloon, as well as the other balloons, came from that little piece as well.  I tried a couple of the colors for the thin layer between the Berry and the White, and the Lost Lagoon one that contest.


There must be bling!  And I only used one of the larger Rhinestones.  Shocking! I know.  But there is also extra touches with the twine.  To make the balloon strings, I used the 2022-2024 In Color Bakers Twine.  This was a carry over that thrilled me.  I love Baker’s Twine.  By adhering all of the balloons, except leaving the bottoms loose, I could lift it up and place a glue dot and the tip of the twine.  The twine was allowed to twist and do it’s own thing as I pulled it down to the gift.  There I added two glue dots.  One to secure the three strings, and another for the bow.  It was really easy to do and a great extra touch for the Balloon Celebration!
