Beautiful Balloons for PP659

Happy Sunday, friends!
Time for a fun new creative challenge over at The Paper Players
This week, I’m thrilled to be hosting our Sketch Challenge.

Sketch Challenge week is my favorite…and even more when I get to be the host because I also love designing card sketches! It’s probably no shock that I designed this layout with lots of layers, right? I think the sketch would be great to showcase patterned papers, embossing or even to make a statement with layered cardstock. I sure hope you will take this challenge for a spin and join us over at The Paper Players. We’d love to see what YOU create!   

*I’ve shared a full supply list of products used to create this card at the end of this post.

Right now, I’m a little smitten with the Merry Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper from the Stampin’ Up!® Mini Catalog. It’s great with the coordinating holiday suite in the catalog but also perfect for everyday designs, too. This rainbow stripe pattern is one of my favorites in the pack, so I decided to make a bright and cheery birthday card with this week’s sketch. 

I created a little bouquet of balloons using the Beautiful Balloons Dies. I cut two balloons from the Melon Mambo & Granny Apple Green Foil Sheets. I LOVE the pop of shine the foil adds. The third balloon was cut from another pattern of DSP. I also brushed some Wink of Stella over the top of the balloon for more sparkle. I mean, go big or go home with a card this bold and bright, right? I added the balloons on some layered die-cut circles. Vellum always adds a little extra detail to a card, don’t you think?   

The balloon “strings” were die cut from Silver Adhesive-Backed Glimmer Paper using the new Merry & Bright Dies. The Glimmer Paper paper is an online exclusive available right now. It comes with both silver and gold shimmer paper and the fact that it already has adhesive on the back makes it a total "must-have" in my book. I heat embossed the sentiment and added some Iridescent Adhesive-Backed Discs to finish the card. These are one of my favorite new embellishments and the low-profile makes them awesome for mailing.

I hope you will join us this week over at The Paper Players and share your project for our Sketch ChallengeWe’d love to see what you come up with! You can link up your project through Noon PST on Friday September 29th, 2023
