Big Balloon Ideas

Hello and welcome to day 5 of the Papertrey Ink June countdown! 

Hooray!!!  Today's group post is all about balloons. And we bring you a great bunch of product!  Balloons can be used to celebrate a number of occasions.  I've chose to celebrate the occasion I create for the most.. a birthday.  Honestly, I could never run out of birthday inspiration.  I hope you'll enjoy what I have for you today.

Here are the items I am showcasing today...
  • Cover Plate: Balloon Bash die
  • Shaker Shapes: Balloon dies
  • Balloon Strings dies
  • Tucked In: Birthday stamp set
Take a look...
I've used the Cover Plate: Balloon Bash die to die cut a piece of Hooray pattern paper and mounted it onto a white card base on an angle.
Using colors from the pattern paper, raspberry fizz and orange zest, I die cut balloons using the Birthday Style die.  I rolled the edges of the balloons in versamark ink for a bit of a shaded look and curled them a bit before attaching them with dimensional adhesive.  From the Shaker Shapes: Balloon dies I used the "hooray!" cut from black cardstock.
I embellished the inside too.  I first stamped a sentiment from the Tucked In: Birthday stamp set and then placed balloon strings on either side, as if to make them appear to have balloons attached that are floating away.  May take a bit of imagination to see it that way though.

Well, that concludes today's look at the good old balloon. As for my new set... Ahoy, I just plum ran out of time to create a card to share in today's blog post.  So sorry.

However, just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning June 15th.  More details on these products can be found at the Papertrey Ink blog.

Now, be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in store for you today...

  4. How fun would that be for the recipient to see stamped balloons on the top part of the inside, floating above those strings!
