Party Animal – Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop


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


My card today starts off with Pacific Point cardstock as its base.  I then created a little present using a pattern from the Party Animal DSP which I used the Corner Punch to curve two of the corners.  I used Emerald Envy Taffeta Ribbon to wrap around it horizontally and vertically to make it more “present like.”

I cut out a Crushed Curry bow using the Balloon Adventures Bundle and added a Pacific Point enamel dot.  I tied an Emerald Envy Baker’s Twine bow and tied the party hat embellishment in it.


I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink on Emerald Envy cardstock and sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and then set it with the Heat Tool.  I cut it out and the Pacific Point cardstock behind it using the Layering Oval Framelits.


Lastly I used the Balloon Celebrations stamp set to stamp the dots in the coordinating color (i.e., Crushed Curry ink on Crushed Curry cardstock) on each of the balloons and cut them out using the Balloon Bouquet Punch.  I attached the Crushed Curry balloon using a Stampin’ Dimensional.
