SAB balloons

Here's a pretty simple card using some of the Sale-a-Bration items from this year. A background of the Sale-a-Bration (SAB) Perfectly Artistic paper on a white card base, with a circle of the balloon paper featured in the Birthday Bouquet papers (Spring catalogue) which has been sponged around the edge with pool party ink. The birthday sentiment has been stamped in black ink onto white cardstock, and the 'to you' part stamped in pool party. This has then been cut using a die, and a little banner added that was made using the banner punch, washi tape and a candy dot. A few more candy dots have been added to the top right of the card for balance (though they look rather askew in the photo!)

Stamps: Perfect Pairings (SAB)
Ink: Basic Black, Pool Party
Cardstock: Whisper White (thick and standard)
Other: Birthday Bouquet DSP, Perfectly Artistic DSP (SAB), It's My Party Washi tape, Lots of Labels framelits, Banner punch, Candy Dots (subtles and neutrals)

Happy Spring!

I spent last weekend helping my friend Bev from Uniko with her stall at the Happy Stampers festival at Port Sunlight. What a fabulous time we had! The other stall holders were very friendly, the people visiting the stall were so enthusiastic and the general atmosphere was fabulous - quite crowded but with none of the pushing and shoving I've experienced at other papercraft shows. Sarah and Lindsey from the Uniko design team were also there to help out, so we managed to talk crafting even while we were 'working'! - it was lovely to meet you both :) I'm hoping that my mojo has been given a good kick up the rear and that I will update my blog more often, but don't hold your breath, LOL!


Some crafty goodies did fall into my basket while I was there but I'll show you how I used them another time. For now, I'll stick with some Stampin' Up retiring products. I've used some of the lovely and bright Cherry on Top DSP as a background for the balloons, with the sentiment stamp from Amazing Birthday inked using markers  for the multi-coloured effect. The balloon strings are silver metallic thread, held in place with a candy dot.
