Balloon adventure glimmer - two cool

Balloon adventure glimmer - sugarplum

Background Basics—This card begins with a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Sweet Sugarplum card stock mounted onto a Whisper White card base.

Balloon Positioning—I punched out three Whisper White balloons with the Balloon Bouquet Punch and positioned them onto a 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock, leaving room for the sentiment.  I used the two balloon string images from Balloon Adventures in Sahara Sand ink to stamp the strings at different heights based on where I positioned the balloons. I adhered the Whisper White balloon shapes in place as a foundation for each glimmer balloon.  This white layer not only helps cover up the balloon strings behind the balloons, but it also allows one of the balloons to "break out" of the mat border.

Sparkly Balloons—I die cut the glimmer balloons with the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit dies, creating one in each color. They are popped up with Dimensionals that I trimmed down into small pieces.  TIP: This is a great time to use the outer edge of the Dimensional sheet! 

Bundle It & Save!  Purchase the Balloon Adventures stamp set and Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies together in a bundle and save 10% off the cost of purchasing them separately!

Finishing Touches—I added some Rhinestone Jewels floating around the balloons to look like sparkling confetti!

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the sentiment from Balloon Adventures in the corner with Sweet Sugarplum ink.

Two Cool—I created a second version with a Bermuda Bay background mat going in a vertical direction.

Sweet Sentiment—This time, the balloons needed to go above the sentiment and I didn't want the strings to cover up the sentiment, so I raised it up onto a 2-3/4" x 1-1/8" piece of Whisper White, fishtailed on one side.  I also used more Rhinestones to fill up the blank spaces.  Looks like a fun celebration!
