Pink & Main - 5th Birthday Blog Hop


Hello and welcome! I'm thrilled to be joining Pink & Main's 5th birthday celebration and blog hop. 
Your next stop on the hop will be Ilina's blog.  I have shared the full hop list at the end of this post in case you've missed anyone.  There's a fabulous giveaway too... be sure to leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win.  There will be five winners chosen and each winner will receive a $50 Pink & Main store credit.  

Now on to the card I'm sharing today... 
I used the new Party Balloons stamp set and dies along with the Celebrate stamp set and dies.


This card is a slimline design that measures 8.5 inches long by 3.5 inches wide.  I started by blending some aqua ink onto the front of the card.  I kept the blend heavier at the top and lighter towards the bottom.  I stamped out several of the different balloons and then die cut with the coordinating dies.  For the aqua colored balloon, I heat embossed the confetti pattern with Ranger Silver Tinsel embossing powder. 


Once I had decided on the placement of all the balloons, I stamped the strings directly onto the card front with dark gray ink.  I then adhered the balloons with foam squares.  I trimmed a skinny strip of dark gray card stock and white heat embossed the stamped part of the sentiment leaving a gap for the die cut celebrate.  For a little more sparkle, I added some silver iridescent gems. 

Be sure to check out Pink & Main's new release ...now available!
