SugarPea Designs: Sweet2Repeat with the Fall release!

Hey everyone!

I'm finally being able to get a bit more crafty in-between my lonnnng to-do list, since back to school. And it's just in time for the newest edition of Sweet2Repeat at SugarPea Designs, yay!







I've decided to celebrate with a very simple card, using the brand new Birthday Balloons stamp set and the SugarCut - Card Front Element Builder. They're both so festive!


I started the project by creating an A2 cardbase, onto which I stacked a kraft diecut with the largest rectangle from the Card Front Element Builder. Then, I diecut the scalloped rectangle in white cardstock, so that I can easily stamp and colour on it, without adding too much dimension on my card. I first stamped the outline balloon stamp twice, then the solid on right in the middle of the cardfront in a bright Coral Cabana tone (ink from Catherine Pooler). After that, I stamped the different patterns in each balloon in black, to create a contrast. 

TIP: Add some depth by colouring with a light marker on the left side of your balloons!

Next step was to either stamp the string below the balloons (I prefer to handdraw them), and heat embossed a sentiment in gold on a piece of black cardstock that is popped with foam tape. And that was it!



Make sure to start hoping from the SugarPea Design Blog in order to win some prizes!

What a great balloon card! I like the pop of pink color and the contrast of the black/white. I think your sentiment really is great layered onto the scalloped background. TFS! Great idea.
