January Birthday Workshop

So this weekend I had a workshop that was postpone due to weather.  So I thought I would make the card up in a video and share the instructions with you guys as well.  I think the card turned out super cute and has a great tag also.   I am using two great sets Lift Me Up and Balloon Adventures.   And right now is the best time to buy, taking advantage of Salebration!!!


Birthday Card
White Card 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded in half.
Layer Crumbcake 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 and then cloud piece 4 x 5 1/4
Die cut large hot air balloon and elements for underside of balloon.
 Cover hot air balloon die cut, with wink of stella. 
Glue underside layers  to the backside of large balloon with fine tip glue pen.
 Stamp small hot  air balloon in crumb cake on vanilla cut out
stamp hot air balloon on watermelon wonder on 1 1/2 x 4 piece card stock to far left side
stamp Happy Birthday sentiment in crumb cake to the right of the hot air balloon
 Attach watermelon piece down with snail adhesive toward bottom of card,
add small  air balloon on  dimensional next to big balloon.
 Stamp the envelope in each color crumb cake and watermelon wonder with small hot air balloon in corner.

Birthday Tag
soft sky piece 2 x 5 1/2 cut first end in the ornate punch
other end in the triple banner punch
stamp confetti stamp in soft sky ink off on scrap paper first then tag do this multi times at the top of the tag until you are happy. (this should give you a light stamped look if you want it darker you dont have to stamp it off first, you can stamp it directly on the tag)
stamp birthday sentiment in dapper denim ink,
choose balloon to ink toward right or left.
Stamp strings in pool party,  already inked balloon and to area where you are going to place die cut balloon.
Die cut you balloon with balloon bunch or cut one out with framelits.

Avent Garden & So Very Much

 Sale a Bration Time is such a Great Time for buying with Stampin up.  And these two sets are the perfect example why.   This Card uses two of the stamp  sets you can choose from when you purchase $50 or more from any Stampin Up purchase.  This can be the new Occasion Catalog, Annual or even Clearance section.     I love the color Mint Macaroon and Watermelon Wonder together.  I embossed, did some watercoloring with this, and some dimentials and ribbon really bring the card together.  It was lots of fun, and great for that moment when you need to say Thanks. 

I hope you enjoy the tutorial below,  products and link to store below also.
