Balloon Celebration and Weekly Deals

balloon celebration 2

What’s better than balloons for creating birthday cards, and Stampin’ Up! has given us so many fun coordinating pieces to create balloons in the Balloon Celebration stamp set from the 2016 Occasions Catalog.  This card is actually quite simple and gets its wow factor from a pretty subtles color scheme and lots of dimension.

  • I began by first stamping the collection of strings on Whisper White Cardstock using a Black Memento Stamp Pad.
  • Although there are several stamping options for the balloons themselves, I opted to simply punch out cardstock using the coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch.  Bundle and save 15% when you purchase the Balloon Celebration stamp set AND the coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch.  I used all colors from the Subtles Collection, with the exception of the In Color Mint Macaron.  I just love this soft green!
  • I arranged the balloons to look as if they’re coming from the strings and used Dimensionals to create depth to the bundle.

  • A piece of Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon ties them all together.  Use a Glue Dot for a fast hold.
  • Love the font used for the sentiments in Balloon Celebration!  I accented my sentiment banner with a Wisteria Wonder Candy Dot from the Subtles Collection.
  • The background diagonal striped paper comes from the Subtles Color Collection.  This package of designer paper is so versatile and economical.  You’ll receive 40 sheets of 12″x12″ paper, 2 each of 2 double-sided designs in all 10 collection colors.
  • I often use a thin black border to set off the various elements of my cards.  By using Black Cardstock between the card base and the designer paper, it really makes the colors pop!

And today is Tuesday, so there are new Weekly Deals!  Stampin’ Up! also announced today that they will be discontinuing the Weekly Deals program on April 18th.  So there’s just two weeks left to get in on the savings!
