Yesterday was our weekly Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. It was a color challenge and I loved it so much, I decided to make two cards. If you missed yesterday’s card, you can see it here.
My card today uses Pool Party cardstock as its base on which I layered a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Before I go any further, I just want to say that one of the reasons why I love today’s card is that it’s very versatile and uses hardly any product at all. You could switch out the colors to make it more feminine or juvenile. You could turn the sentiment so it’s not on an angle. The possibilities are endless.
Next I created my sentiment by stamping it in Pool Party ink from the Balloon Adventures set. I then angled it on my card, used a pencil to mark where it needed to be cut, and cut it on the angle. I added a Pool Party Enamel Heart (to be honest) to cover a smudge. Isn’t that what embellishments are for anyways?! 🙂
I placed the sentiment on my card and drew a line on either side so I knew how low and far up I needed to stamp the balloons. Using Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder, and Crumb Cake ink, I stamped the various balloons from the Balloon Adventures stamp set in different heights around the card.
I matted the sentiment on a panel of Watermelon Wonder cardstock and adhered it over the balloons.
My card today was inspired by The Paper Players challenge this week.
