Lets Party

Hello there, all my wonderful friends –

I hope you are doing well and feeling happy on this fine Saturday!!

Made this card this evening:


Started with a Pink Passion card base – top folding, added a mini Cupcake doily from Doodlebug Designs – used a rectangle and a banner die to cut pieces out of watercolor paper – Stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches Word Salad Set and the heart balloon from the Paper Smooches Smoocheroos set!

Stamped the heart balloons and sentiment with the  Versafine – Onyx Black  inkpad and used Clear ultra fine embossing powder.

Colored the hearts in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens  – 025 Pink, and 026 Light Pink and a paintbrush!! On the rectangle I colored with my Zig 031 Cobalt Blue and then used water to blend it out! I did the same with the banner – I used 025 Pink with water to blend it to cover the banner with color.

I am linking this card up to these challenges:

I used a Sweet n Sassy die set to cut the banner – I used partial die cutting to make it longer!

    My dear friend, with travel and work in triple doses of late, I’ve fallen nearly TWENTY posts behind! Your charming, pretty, innovative, inspired and all around smile-making delights have all been gazed at, admired, oohed and ahhed over, so hopefully my awe at your creativity found its way to you. I’m going to start afresh and strive to stay caught up! Fingers crossed! I’m melting over your heart bouquet…so incredibly sweet…and talk about being an expert with the Zigs! Impressive! I’m still wrestling with mine! Sending you much love and sunshine!
    Hugs, hugs and hugs~c

    There are so many fabulous things to say about this card! I love the balloon bouquet and how you popped the balloons then added the matching twine. Brilliant! The blending of the color on the banner created such a fantastic effect. I love the combination of tones of pink with the blue. What a magnificent card!!!
