The Celebrate Today Stamp Set was introduced in the 2015 Occasion catalog back in January – and it was included in the 2015 – 2016 Annual Catalog that came out in June. I was looking for inspiration for a birthday card and picked up the set….. just to see what ‘vibes’ it would give me………. although the set has a balloon theme it also has a bunch of greetings that would celebrate most life experience occasion…… birthday, baby, wedding and graduation.
While I made the birthday card – which I will share, I also thought it would be a great opportunity to create a week of cards using this set……. so here is #1……..
Base card 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 ~ Crushed Curry, scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Whisper White Card
Ink colors ~ Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz and Real Red
This stamp set comes with matching Framelits which cut out the balloon and that little ‘tassle’ hanging below it, which was done with a tiny scrap of Silver Foil card.
To give the card some dimension I popped the balloon up on a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The spots on the balloon were dabbed with a little 2-way glue pen and then scattered with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter.(although it doesn’t show too well on this photo)
The ‘Happy’ is cut from Pear Pizzazz card using the ‘Hello You’ thinlets dies.
A nice, bright, cheerful card…………. I hope you enjoyed this one – let me know your thoughts below …………
