CARD IN A BOX FOR A 2 YEAR OLD!

I can finally share this card with you.  I was so excited to finish this card but it had to wait. It’s kinda cute.  🙂

I was asked by a friend to make a special card for her 2 year old.  Things she liked was pink, purple and orange – and fish! How to incorporate all that??  I decided to go with the ‘Balloon Builders’ stamp set.

So, here it is for you. I have a few different angles for you.

The “Hugs and Kisses” sentiment is from the ‘Party Pants’ Sale-A-Bration set.  The ideas for the different balloon animals were from Pinterest. I had to incorporate a couple of fish in there somewhere. 😉  The Designer Series Paper is from ‘It’s My Party’ paper stack.

And the back gives a place to write on.

What do you think?  This was a labour of love and I had so much fun creating and it was very well received.

Thanks for visiting me.

FLAMINGO FOR FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES #226!

I saw this idea on Pinterest a few weeks ago to make a flamingo with the ‘Balloon Builders’ stamp set.  I had only just started using this set after receiving it at Stampin’ Up! Onstage last November.  I thought this flamingo was kinda cool though.  So I stamped it up but then I didn’t know how to put it on a card – until I saw the Freshly Made Sketches sketch this week. So I finally added it to a card – and it is done before the time of the sketch challenge to end!  Here is the sketch and then my card.

The card base is Melon Mambo and the paper is from the ‘It’s My Party’ Paper Stack. I matted this piece on to some Silver Foil. (Just a tip: Cut a rectangle from the centre of your Silver Foil piece then you can use that piece for another project).  The sentiment is from ‘Remembering Your Birthday’ and I cut a little silver piece from the ‘Itty Bitty Banners’.  I added a Paper Lace Doily and some Melon Mambo dots from the ‘It’s My Party’ Enamel Dots.

I have used a number of the balloons from the ‘Balloon Builders’ set and drew the legs freehand.  This is a fun set and you can create so many cute things with it.  Here is the set if you haven’t noticed it in the catalogue.

This is on p. 14 of the catalogue.  It is a photopolymer stamp and is $28.  Great value for 19 stamps!

The original Flamingo card can be found HERE. Go and check the link out though because Ruth has lots of clever ideas with this set.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have yourself a great day where ever you are. 🙂
