Thanks for joining us on this edition of the Stamp Review Crew blog hop where we're "reviewing" Celebrate Today! We're a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who hop on the first and third Monday of each month. We all use the same stamp set for each hop and it's always amazing at all the different projects created with one set! If you get off track at any time please click the image below to go to our page where you'll find a full list of hoppers for this week.
If you're not starting here you may have come from Holly Krautkremer's blog, Rubber Redneck. Holly always has great projects!
I have seen so many awesome projects on-line using Celebrate Today that I wondered what I could come up with that was any different. I'm not sure this is different but "Gold" came to mind and that's where I started with this card, with a bit of gold….
A bit of Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape and the balloon framelit in the Balloon Framelits Dies that coordinates with Celebrate Today was how it started. I layered up the Washi Tape on a piece of Whisper White card stock and once I ran it through the Big Shot with the framelit I had my first ballon. Then things just "ballooned" when I chose Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss to go along with the gold. The flag banner was stamped repeatedly using Blackberry Bliss ink and Gold Metallic Encore Ink on Perfect Plum card stock for a fun background. Celebrate was stamped in Versa Mark Ink on Blackberry Bliss card stock and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder before trimming out with the balloon framelit. The Gold Metallic ink was used to stamp the polka dots on the second Blackberry Bliss balloon. The gold ribbons were hand drawn using a Gold Stampin' Dazzle Marker. The Balloon Framelits has a cute little bow die that was used to cut two Gold Foil bows to add to the Blackberry Bliss balloons.
I had an extra balloon that was embossed in gold and I used it inside the card…..
Thanks for hopping by today and I hope you will continue hopping along for some more awesome projects using Celebrate Today. Your next stop is Bronwyn Eastley's blog, addINKtive designs, and you're sure to find more inspiration there!
