CASology 5-year Anniversary Hop Logo

Hopefully you have arrived from Maureen Merritt’s Blog Mama Mo Stamps, but if you’ve just popped by my blog you can start the Blog Hop HERE over at CASology, where the full list of participants can be found. Details & prize information is at the end of the post 😉

The theme of the Blog Hop and Challenge this week is Balloon…

Week 259 - Balloon

How about some inspiration using the cue word…

Appropriately I reached for Uniko Balloon Bash clear stamp set and I always like to pair the balloons with some kind of background. For this card I decided upon Background Blocks Horizontal Stripe and a sentiment from Happy Succulents.
Having browsed a trend magazine last week, the ombré trend is sticking around a little longer and is such a fun technique/colour way for this striped background. Altenew cube inks are perfect in achieving an ombré colour effect too. I’ve had the blue collection for a while but it’s not one I reach for often, so decided to use them for this card.

I used my MISTI tool for placement & stamping of the background, so I was able to achieve good solid lines by repeatedly inking and stamping. I then stamped the ‘happy’ sentiment and partial balloon string, so that my balloon would be anchored.
The balloon is stamped & fussy cut out, with a rather good covering of Clear Wink Of Stella. I opened a new pen and it kinda flowed out a little quick & too much! Oh well, you can never have too much sparkle! I added a few SU! Glitter Enamel Dots to finish the design off.
That’s all I have to share with you today and your next stop on the hop is Hannelie Bester from Desert Diva, who is sure to WOW you with her card!

    Your card is full of blue in the background and it’s so cute! I’ve done different shades of one color on a card but not like that. I don’t have that stamp but boy would I love to have it! I love your pretty pink balloon. It’s a very colorful! Thanks for showing us your card and for giving us the chance to win something. I can’t wait for the next stop on the hop to see what everyone else has created! By for now!
