I think I have been away long enough. Procrastination over! New beginning. After all I’m sure that you are all curious as to what I have been creating! Yes? No? For those with a yes stay posted because this is one of many. Soon to come from my now full folder of cards made.
Today I will share one I made for our April challenge and it has been posted in Vicki Wrights Newsletter as I actually won this month
I like this colour combination, partly because the name ‘blackberry bliss’ reminds me of many a day gathering wild ones in the banks of the River Derwent in Tasmania and if you haven’t tried them they are bliss. Yumm! To make the card I took Hello Honey card stock and embossed it with the Lucky Stars embossing folder and then a piece from Birthday Bash Specialty papers was adhered next to it on Whisper White Card Stock. I over laid the join with Hello Honey ribbon. These were then glued to Blackberry Bliss card stock.
I stamped the Balloons from the photopolymer stamp set in the Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Smokey Slate, first onto the Whisper White base then 3 onto a scrap of Whisper White which I then fussy cut out without their threads. The bottom of the Whisper White was stamped in the same colours with the confetti stamp from this set. The 3 fussy cut balloons were popped up on dimensionals and completed with some string bows to each of them and a Hello Honey Bow tied them together.
I popped this ‘balloon posy’ up on some more dimensionals and adhered over the ribbon.
The card was completed with Happy Birthday from Itty Bitty Banners.
I created a verse that you can share for this or other balloon cards.
Hope it brightens your day. Still tasting blackberrys!
