Balloon Framelits

 Balloons are a great way to add a festive touch to any celebration.  And what could be easier than using Balloon Framelits and Washi Sheets (on special until April 20) or happy Designer Series paper?

Simply Punchy

Four You © Stampin' Up!
This  fun card design is a great way to use up small scraps of Designer Series Paper.

Select colors that coordinate, punch and assemble.  It's just that easy and quick.

Here I punched out 8-1" squares, corner-rounding opposite corners to form the "petals". Adhere the 8 pieces onto a Whisper White mat, and run through the Texturz Boutique using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder to give it a bit of extra pizzazz.

The sentiment tag is stamped, punched using the Decorative Label punch, and sponged and popped up on Dimensionals.


Joy from the craft room,

Triple Layer Fun

So Very Grateful    ©Stampin Up!

Triple Layer stamping is easy to do, and the effects can be stunning.  Do you remember the adage: measure twice, cut once?  Precision pays off with this card.  See if you can discover the pattern.

Cut Whisper White layers:
2" x 3-1/4"
3"x 4-1/4"
4"x 5-1/4"

Cut card base and mats: 
2-1/4" x 3-1/2"
3-1/2" x 4-1/2"
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (fold in half to create card)

Layer white pieces together, using temporary tape to hold in place.
Stamp as desired.
Separate white layers and finish coloring, adhere to corresponding mats, then matted images to card base, making sure that images are line up just as they were when you stamped them.
Embellish as desired.
Joy to you from the craft room,
