Balloon Adventures

ccmc439HAPPY first Thursday of the New Year!  One of the BEST things about this year is that there is a new Occasions mini and  it is Sale-a-bration time!

I really love the new Balloon Adventures set and matching framelits and I LOVE the Urban Underground dsp….LOVE the colors and the cool patterns in this collection…just AWESOME!  So I thought the two together would be perfect for sketch challenge this week!

Here’s the details…

  • Delightful Dijon – 4 1/4 x 11, folded, stamp on the confetti using Delightful Dijon.
  • Black/Grey print – 2 x 4 1/2, run through the hexagon dynamics embossing folder and add to card front
  • Slashed print – 2 x 3 1/4, add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/8 x  4 1/4 add to card front
  • Very Vanilla – stamp the dotted balloon and the striped balloon using Delight Dijon and punch out.
  • Basic Black – cut out the dotted balloon and striped balloon framelit and two strings; layer everything together and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Very Vanilla – stamp banner using Memento Black and greeting using Delightful Dijon, cut out and add using dimensionals
