Balloon Bash

CCMC350Happy Thursday everyone!  Since it is Thursday, it is time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and this week we have a fun color challenge for you – Night of Navy, Calypso Coral, and Crushed Curry.  How great are those!

I decided I wanted to pair up the Birthday Bash set with Gorgeous Grunge set to make a fun and happy birthday card!

Here’s the details –

  • Crushed Curry – 4 1/4 x 11 folded,
  • Balloon Bash Specialty dsp (Crushed Curry dotted) – 5/8 x 5 1/2 , add to left side of card base.
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 5 1/2.  Stamp larger splatter using Crushed Curry and smaller in Calypso Coral.
  • Night of Navy 1/2 x 5 1/2 – cut TWO and add one to each side of panel.  Add panel to card base using dimensionals.
  • Stamp balloons using Night of Navy, cut out and add to card base using dimensionals
  • Stamp the celebrate banner twice – once using Night of Navy and once using Calypso Coral, cut out, layer and add using dimensionals.
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.

  1. Fantastic birthday card! I love the splatters and the strip of DSP! Looks great!

  2. Love all of the fussy cutting that you did! This card is so cute especially with the splatters on the background!

  3. Those fussy cut balloons are worth the effort – they look great against the grunge background. I really should use this set more!

  4. These colors really do say “birthday” to me, and your birthday card is like a party on a cardstock base! It is so happy and fun!

  5. Your card definitely looks like a big fun party! Love how you used the grunge stamp and layered on all those balloons for such a great effect!
