The 2015 Occasions Catalog has some fabulous birthday stamps and today's countdown sneak peek features one of those sets! It's another card we'll be creating at the upcoming Occasions Catalog & Sale-A-Bration Kickoff Party this coming Sunday!
SNEAK PEEK #1: Celebrate Today Stamp Set—This fun stamp set has basic balloon images that can be decorated with festive dots, confetti, banners and tassels! Use the array of images to create party balloons or a hot air balloon. Combine them with the several different greetings included in this set and there are all kinds of posssibilities!
Balloon Basics—Starting with a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the center balloon in Pear Pizzazz, then added two more Pool Party balloons on either side for the background balloons. I added some large Pear Pizzazz dots to the first balloon, and Pool Party flag banners to the other balloons—love that detailed balloon décor!
Balloon Strings—I inked the triangle balloon tails in Pool Party and stamped off once before stamping them under each balloon. This subtle, stamped-off image keeps the balloons tethered without distracting from the sentiment.
After all of the tails were stamped, including the tail for the popped up balloon, I adhered the background to a Pear Pizzazz card base with SNAIL.
SNEAK PEEK #2: Balloon Framelit Dies—The Celebrate Today set also has a matching set of framelits for super-easy cutting of the balloon, flag banners and other decorative elements!
Die-Cut Balloon—I die-cut the last balloon in So Saffron and stamped some Hello Honey confetti on top before popping it up with Dimensionals. I added a tiny White Baker's Twine bow with a dab of Multipurpose Glue.
Bundle It & Save—Purchase the Celebrate Today stamp set and Balloon Framelits Dies together in the Celebrate Today Bundle and save 15% off the cost of purchasing them separately.
Sweet Sentiment—The "happy" is stamped in Pool Party and the "birthday" is stamped in Pear Pizzazz.
Here's another version in a vertical format. The words are separate stamps, so you can use them side-by-side or stack them easily. And, you can combine the "happy" with other words from the set including "wedding," "baby" and "graduation." It's a fabulous all-occasion set!
