Popping in with a quick post about a card for the Stampin' Celebration Challenge #35. This is a new-to-me challenge, and I was inspired by the photos and the fact that the design team uses Stampin' Up products for their fabulous inspirational designs. I need some good inspiration to use all of my SU stuff!! AND the fact that they are having some BLOG CANDY certainly does not hurt either!! :)
The inspiration photo's are all about a party! Looks like a birthday party with all of the bright colors and ballons! I see some cake too!
Here is what I was able to come up with:
I was not sure if I had to use all SU products to play in this challenge, but I thought I'd be better off safe than sorry! And I realized that I had no SU stamps of balloons. What's a girl to do? (I added it to my wish list!)
I remembered my stamp set 'Happy Moments', and used the presents because the cake stamp looked too girly. I went with polka dots to replace the lack of balloons!
I grabbed Pacific Point and Pumpkin Pie papers, Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point cardstocks, my paper piercer and pad, a Pumpkin Pie corduroy button, some Pacific Point ribbon, and a needle and thread. I added some embossed dots with my cuttlebug, and some dabs of color with a stipple brush. I colored the image with SU classic inks and a waterbrush.
I wanted to sew the three panels, but was running short on time. It looks a little bare to me now! But we will call it 'clean and simple'!! :)
Okay, thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
Have a very creative day!!
