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!!!

What a great combo. I love the bit of Wink if Stella you added to balloons and their strings. Really makes them "pop". And the bag is fun with all the little extras added. Great work!
