Hi everyone, thanks for joining me today. I have a fun project to share using the Surprise Party paper pack. I love these papers. Every sheet is so vibrant! They’re double sided, filled with bright celebration patterns on one side, and tone-on-tone patterns on the back. I used the tone-on-tone sides for my card today.
I stamped 5 2-layered star balloons from the Bold Balloons Stamp set. I used the coordinating die to cut them out, then added shimmer and Crystal Glaze for shine.
On the top side of a horizontal 8.5 X 4.25 card base, I stamped confetti from the same stamp set. Next I positioned the balloons where I wanted them on the card base, and marked their spots. I used a multiliner pen and a T-ruler to draw balloon strings from the marked spots to the middle of the card base. I cut a thin strip of black card stock, and glued it where the ballon strings stopped. I used the Happy die to die cut black card stock 4 times, then stacked and glued them for height. I cut 3/8 inch strips of pattern paper, then glued the strips under the black line, using a grid to keep my strips straight.
Once the balloons were dry, I adhered them with foam adhesive. I used glue to attach the die cut word, then added shimmer and Crystal glaze to match the balloons. I picked words from Happy Thoughts stamp set to stamp and white heat-emboss onto black card stock. I trimmed the words down to strips, and attached them to the card with thin foam squares.
I hope I have helped you with ideas on how to incorporate pattern papers to your cards. Be sure to stop by the Sunny Studio Stamp Blog for more inspiration. That’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by!
