For the April Blog Hop I chose a bundle that I purchased awhile back when the Occasions catalog first went live! I have barely used it! The colors intimidate I think! And the DSP is more on the masculine side, which I don't typically make many projects out of!
The card I chose to make uses all Stampin Up products.
The bundle I chose was from the Party Animal Suite on page 4-5 of the Occasions Catalog and the stamp set is the Balloon Adventures. I also used the matching framelits (Balloon Pop-up) and Party Animal embellishments and Emerald Envy taffeta ribbon.
I used a Paper and ink combination of Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Emerald Envy and Pacific Point.
The card is pretty easy to make
I used Emerald Envy for my cardbase and a piece of DSP cut to and 1/8" shorter than the cardbase.
I cut out the balloon background with the Balloon Pop up framelits, then I trimmed the edges to the size I wanted it to be on the front of the card.
Stamped the balloons using the Balloon Adventures and Balloon Celebration stamp sets.
Punched them out using the Balloon punch.
I stamped the banner and cut it out by hand.
I added clear Wink of Stella on the balloons, banner and strings. I also added some Basic Rhinestones.
At the moment the bag is filled with Smarties. But I will be changing it up when I give it to my Aunt on Easter Sunday for her birthday. I plan to fill it with some of her favorite candy's and a gift card she can use shopping!!
I hope you enjoyed the projects I made for you! Please leave a comment for your chance at winning some blog candy!!!
