Balloon Builders - Birthday Girl


Tomorrow my baby will be 8 years old! I cannot believe it! She is an avid card maker, Barbie collector as well as lover of Purple!   Instead of making a card that she would have preferred, I made one inspired by how I feel when I think of her.... This is also my entry for this week's Global Design Project  - a theme challenge this week! I wanted to keep things simple.

Purple heart balloons for the Birthday Girl (from the Balloon Builder  Photopolymer stamp set)! 

Purple heart balloons for the Birthday Girl!

Iridescent Ice Stampin' Embossing Powder adds sparkle to the balloons!

My Product List

Hints & Things

  •  I stamped over the balloon hearts with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice!
  • For the glimmer peeking through the Venetian Crochet I used the new Metallics Glitter Tape (it comes in a 3-pack including White and Silver)  is just one of the products you can earn FREE with each $90.00 spent! Have a look at the new (and old) Sale-a-Bration items here!
  • The sparkly stars were punched with the Confetti Stars punch from Gold Glimmer Paper. These would work perfectly for a shaker card too! The Pink sequins are from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit!
  • The Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack is not only Perfect for Valentines Day!
Well , I'm off to bake cupcakes AND make tags for Bubble Wands...

Take care!
