Birthday Cards x 2 with Calypso Coral

Balloon Celebration Stamp Set Creation
I decided that sometimes when I sit down to create a card, I just can't get all the ideas together. I have so many options, so I've tried something new. I decided just to grab any one of my stamp sets. This time I chose Stampin' Up's Balloon Celebration Stamp Set. I then just sketched out in a journal/sketch book, what I kind of wanted things to look like. So far it seems to be working out well. I don't always have time to take out my supplies to make something, and this way, I can just draw out the main idea, so when do have time, I can get right to it.

Some dimensionals helped pop out these cute little
balloons and the balloon punch that you can
bundle with the stamp set makes it a breeze.

Birthday Sentiments on Mint Macaron

I really had a fun time with this card. I had sketched this card out and it seemed quite simple and needed a little extra something. That's when I brushed the edges and added the flower stamp to the card background. Turned out better than expected. 

Supplies - 
  • Stamp Sets: Balloon Celebrations, Botanicals for You, Perfect Pairings, Rose Wonder & Endless Birthday Wishes
  • Ink Colors: Calypso Coral & Early Espresso
  • Paper: Tip Top Taupe, Whisper White, & Mint Macaron
  • Misc: Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon, sponge for the edges

I hope you like my ideas. If you have any questions on any of these, please don't hesitate to ask.
