I came across a great card by another demo – Libbystamps – in which she used the balloon stamp to make the negative embossed image from the Duo Celebrations Embossing Folder pop!
My card starts with Melon Mambo cardstock which I stamped with the confetti stamp from the Balloon Adventures stamp set in Memento Black Ink. I then cut a smaller Whisper White panel which I embossed the sentiment “Happy” using the Duo Celebrations embossing folder.
I took the solid balloon from the Balloon Adventures stamp set and stamped a bunch of balloons across the happy in Melon Mambo Ink. I shared a great tip here which helps keep the ink from going into the negative image. I stamped the balloon ribbons in Memento Black Ink and adhered the Whisper White panel to a Silver Foil Sheet panel.
I used the Thick Melon Mambo Baker’s Twine and tied a ribbon around the image. Next I stamped the banner image from the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it in White Embossing Powder. The “Birthday To You” comes from the Happy Celebrations stamp set which I sort of “bent” to fit the banner and heat embossed it in white as well.
