Balloon Adventures – Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop


This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.


A little tease…I loved these colors so much that I made two cards.  Come back tomorrow to see the second card I made using this color combination.

My card today uses Pool Party cardstock as its base.  I then cut out a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and used the big framelit from the Balloon Adventures Bundle to cut out the balloon image.  Before adhering it to the Pool Party cardstock, I cut out a piece of the Sending Love Glassine Sheet to put behind it.


I then made my balloons using Whisper White, Pool Party, and Watermelon Wonder cardstock and the Balloon Pop-Up Framelits.  I adhered the middle balloon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I stamped the banner and sentiment in Watermelon Wonder Ink using the Balloon Adventures stamp set.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lastly I cut out a bow in Whisper White cardstock and adhered it over the cut out bow.



Now click on the button below and check out what Amy created this week.  Happy hopping!
