Yay!!! It’s Friday! I’m excited that it’s going to be raining this weekend. It’ll be a great weekend for designing in my studio. Woohoo! First, I’ll be rounding out my designs for next weeks March Madness Card Classes. Second, we have a local demo event coming up and I’m on the committee for the Make-n-Takes as well as I will be presenting. We’re going to receive the A Nice Cuppa stamp set so I’m going to see what fun and different ideas I can design. I’m SUPER excited!
Today I have the first in a trio of designs featuring the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack. This paper pack features bold and bright as well as soft and black & white colors and designs. I created this cute design with the idea of looking like wrapped birthday candy. The candy ends also have pieces of gathered Vellum behind the Melon Mambo Curly-Cue pieces. This would make for a great young girls birthday card or by switching the Melon Mambo for even Real Red, it would make a great guy card. The Melon Mambo Dots on the Designer Series Paper should blend well enough (maybe! Lol!!!).
CARD BASE: This fun card base starts with Daffodil Delight layered with Melon Mambo and Dotted It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack.
BALLOONS: The balloons are Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight (to coordinate with the Designer Series Paper) punched with the Balloon Bouquet punch and ultra narrow strips of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer for the balloon strings.
SENTIMENT: I wanted the “happy” and “birthday” to look like wrapped candy. So…….the words from the Party Wishes stamp set were stamped onto Whisper White with Melon Mambo ink and fussy cut down. Then layered onto Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer and topped with Vellum to look like wrapped candy. [Hey, I had to get sparkle in somewhere. Lol!] I used the Curly-Cue pieces from the Party Pop-Ups Thinlits Dies in Melon Mambo to give the feel of Curling Ribbon.
I just love the bright happy feel of this card. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great Friday and amazing weekend! Happy stamping!
