Bright Balloons in the Clouds!!!

Coral Balloons & Clouds,

There is always something beautiful even on a cloudy day! With this card, I think the clouds are sparse enough that is is just a bright and beautiful day!!! 🙂 I love that POP of color in the balloons on this card!

I started with a Soft Sky card base and added a piece of Marina Mist measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. Then I took a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″ and stamped the clouds from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I stamped the big cloud in Marina Mist (stamped off once) and the smaller cloud in Soft Sky. You can always stamp the images a few times to get those various shades and lighter look. For the balloons, I stamped onto scrap Very Vanilla cardstock with the Balloon Celebration stamps. I stamped the solid balloon in Calypso Coral (stamped off once) and then I stamped the texture/dots in full strength Calypso Coral. I punched the balloons out with the Balloon Bouquet Punch (Bundle & Save 15%). I placed the end of the Gold Baker’s Twine on the back of the balloon and placed a Stampin’ Dimensional over the top of it to hold it in place. Then I added 1-2 more Dimensionals up higher and placed it on the card. I pulled the strings tight and wrapped them to the back of the cardstock and placed another Stampin’ Dimensional on top of the ends. I added more Dimensionals to the back and placed it on the card front. You all know how I love my Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the greeting, I stamped it in Marina Mist onto Soft Sky. I slide the paper into the Banner Triple Punch and added it to the card front! Love it!

Happy Stampin’
