Balloon Celebrations - Congratulations!

Happy Monday!  I've got a super easy, quick and bright card to share with you today.  

We saw the sun in Iowa today - for about the first time in two weeks - so I was ready to create something bright and fun.  

Enter Balloon Celebrations stamp set.  The images in this set a fun and quite versatile - I went with a Congratulations theme.  But balloons are good for any celebration - from new baby, to engagement, to graduation.  Oh, and don't forget birthday!!!

This one was so simple to put together:
  1. Sponge Daffodil Delight ink onto center of Whisper White card stock.  Use a circular motion, concentrating the ink towards the center and working your way out.
  2. Rub an embossing buddy over the yellow area generously.  Then stamp the two cloud images using Versamark ink. Sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat with a heat tool.
  3. Stamp the two graphic images with Smoky Slate ink - stamping off first onto scrap paper.  Wipe away any ink you get on top of the embossed images.
  4. Stamp the balloons in Old Olive, Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo, punch with Balloon punch.  Adhere in place - using Stampin' Dimensionals on a couple of the balloons.
  5. Stamp sentiment with Black ink. 
  6. Adhere panel to Bermuda Bay card base.
This one was so easy - that I created several!  All in all, I think the four cards took me about a half hour - maybe 45 minutes at the most.

Have a wonderful day! Hope you enjoyed this card today!
