TSSC356Yep…time for another fun Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge and I decided to ‘celebrate’ with some fun balloons!

I thought that print from Best Year Ever SAB dsp sort of looked like confetti so I thought using that and adding balloons would be fun for the sketch this week.

And yes…I was crazy enough to cut out those streamers for the balloons – you do know I like to cut things out!

Here’s the details –

  • Coastal Cabana – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Best Year Ever (SAB) dsp – 3 1/2 x 1 1/4.  Cut out three and add to card front.
  • Stamp solid balloon using Crushed Curry then add the confetti using Soft Sued.  Stamp Happy balloon using Calypso Coral then add birthday using Soft Suede.  Cut out balloons using framelits.  Stamp streamers using Soft Streamers cut out and add behind balloons.  Add Crushed Curry balloon using single dimensionals and Calypso Coral balloon using double layer of dimensionals.
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.

Such a GREAT sketch…I hope you can join the fun!    Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

TSSC353Here we are at another Monday and Mary Jo really has an interesting sketch for us today.  I have to say….this one made me really have to think what to do.

I just love this balloon set…it’s just so much fun and REALLY happy!    When I saw the sketch the first thing I thought about was this fun balloon and turned the strips into banners.  when I did that things started working for me!

Here’s the details –

  • Night of Navy – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Confetti Specialty paper (Birthday Bash dsp) – 1 x 4 1/4 add to card top.
  • Night of Navy – 4 1/4 x 4 3/4.  Run through Lucky Starts Embossing Folder add to card front using dimensionals
  • Banners – Gold Foil 1 x 4; Calypso Coral dotted 1 x 1 1/4, Bermuda Bay striped 1 x 1/2.  Add all to card front.
  • Stamp balloon using Bermuda Bay, stamp birthday using Night out Navy.  Cut out balloon.  Add Gold Sequin Trim behind balloon and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Cut out gold foil bow using framelits, add to balloon
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off.
