The Beautiful Balloons stamps and dies are perfect for shaker cards- some of the dies are HUGE. The Bright & Beautiful Suite has the bundle, plus 6×6 DSP and Gold Celebrations Specialty paper. I used all of it on this card! It’s all on page 14-15 in the new catalog.
For the balloons, I die cut them from Basic White cardstock. Using the foam adhesive sheets, I die cut them again to give me a perfect border so my sequins wouldn’t fall out. To see my video doing this with the diorama dies (so SAD they are retiring!), here it is!
The new catalog has some sequins, but we weren’t able to pre order any of them. So, I used the For Everything Fancy sequins- which is also retiring.
Instead of using regular Window sheets, I used the Gold Celebrations. It is window sheets with gold foil. The other side is not gold, but I thought it looked silver so I used that side to show.
The star paper is from the Bright & Beautiful DSP. I used it for the stars and the bottom layer of the the fringe layers. There’s a die in the Balloons that makes that fringe! Stampin’ Up! had a pair of scissors years ago that did that and I loved them! Still have them!
The balloon strings were die cut with the Silver Foil.
Here’s the inside of the card:
The blue paper and ink for the sentiment is Blueberry Bushel- a returning color. It’s a great dark blue!
Check back on 5/2 to see everything I used!
