Birthday Whimsy

With Zoey and Natalie's Birthdays coming up, I've been in the mood to celebrate!! I made these cards last weekend and am just now finding time to add them to my blog...

The Birthday Whimsy stamp set was part of the freebies I earned during Sale-a-bration! I love freebies and this one has been very useful! The Summer Picnic paper series is also very cute in real life. They are double sided patterned papers that work together soo nicely! The colors in this set are very vibrant and perfect for celebrating! I've almost used my whole pack already making little things to display at my workshops...

Anyways, the cards are pretty straight forward. For the 'happy birthday' card, I cut my papers for the background first and adhered them to the card base. I added ribbon around the middle and tied a knot on the side. Next, I stamped out plenty the balloons in different colors and cut them out. I stamped the sentiment and cut around it, leaving room for an eylet on the right. Then I matted it with orange paper and popped my eyelet in. After that, I just adhered it all to my card using dimentional pop dots. I then added the hemp balloon strings to tie the balloons down to the sentiment. Pretty cute!

For the 'make a wish' card, I started by cutting and adhering my background papers. Then I stamped plenty of balloons in different colors on white paper. I also stamped some on the white strip in the background to give dimension to my balloon bouquet. Then, cut out all your balloons! After cutting them out, I adhered a couple straight onto the card, added the next few with demensional pop dots, and added the last one with 2 layers of dementionals. I stamped my sentiment at the bottom and just drew in the balloon strings! Pretty easy really!

I am planning my first workshops now so hopefully I'll have some more exciting things to post soon! If you see something you like in my cards, or in the Stampin' Up catalogue please send me an email and I'll get them ordered for you!
