The Celebration Continues at The Paper Players

Good morning stamping friends! The celebration continues over at The Paper Players this week for their 400th Challenge! I created another card because I love that they are keeping the celebration going for another week. There are a LOT of prizes for this challenge, so I hope you will check it out and share in come celebratory fun! 

I’m currently loving the combo of Pacific Point, Melon Mambo and Mango Melody. 
Bring on the BRIGHTS!! If you have visited me before, you probably know that is my favorite family of colors. 
One of my current goals is to attempt to incorporate stamp sets with colors and paper that weren’t necessarily marketed together. I pulled out the Balloon Celebrations stamp set and used the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday set. I just love that combination of fonts, don’t you? I tied it all together with one of the patterns from the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper. That DSP has a lot of abstract floral images but I thought this pattern paired well with the balloons. 

Balloons are just so much fun on their own, but stamped and heat embossed, they really stand out! I stamped and masked these “strings” a couple of times until I finally got it together. That’s the great thing about card stock. It has 2 sides. So if you make a mistake, just flip it over for a clean slate. Ha! 
I also used the NEW Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the 3-3/4” x 5” Whisper White layer. It is tough to see in the photos but it adds the slightest bit of texture to the paper, which I love. 

Here is a peek of the coordinating inside of the card. 
Pease head on over to The Paper Players to join in the fun! It would be awesome to see what you create for this “Celebration" challenge. Stop by and say hello to the rest of the team and before you leave here today, please leave me a comment to say hello so I know you stopped by. :)

  1. Loving the bright colours and cheery balloons Anne Marie - the subtle embossing on the balloons is a pretty detail too, as is the punched border. So fun to have you celebrate with us again!

  2. This is gorgeous, Anne Marie. I think the DSP you've chosen really gives a party feel with those bright colours. The heat embossing looks great - Balloon Celebration is my favourite balloon stamp. The sentiments, with their fantastic fonts, are wonderful.
