It’s the final countdown! There’s only four days left of Stampin’ Up!’s biggest sale of the year. It’s all over on March 31, 2016. Only four more days to earn free products when you make a qualifying purchase of $50, and there are so many great products to choose from! I’ll be featuring them this week before they’re gone for good.
My card today features three Sale-A-Bration products: 1) the Party Pants stamp set, 2) Metallics Glitter Tape, and 3) Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper.
The Party Pants stamp set balloons coordinate with the Balloon Bouquet punch, which makes it a snap to cut out all the balloons on this card.
I did something fun with my balloons. Instead of just stamping them and making them a solid color, I inked up my stamp and then before stamping, I used an Aqua Painter to brush clear water over the stamp for a more watercolored effect. Also, before I stamped I cleaned off the Aqua Painter Brush and gave each balloon one more swipe across the top of the balloon to remove a little of the ink and give my balloons an appearance of a shine. I think this makes them look more 3-D. Afterwards, I huffed on the stamp and stamped on Shimmery White Paper.
The rest of this card was pretty easy. I placed a strip of Gold Metallics Glitter Tape along the side.
I also used some gold and white sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment to bring a little gold into the card. These sequins adhere perfectly with one glue dot.
For my banner, I stamped the sentiment from the Party Pants stamp set, trimmed it down, and then finished off the edges with a Triple Banner Punch. Then, before adhering it, I curled it with a bone folder.
Finally, I added a little gold and white bow created with some leftover Paper Pumpkin baker’s twine from last December. (I love hording those great Paper Pumpkin exclusive embellishments for when I need them!)
