Balloon Celebration by Stampin’ Up! – #GDP015
Balloon Celebration by Stampin’ Up! – Celebration card for Global Design Project Celebration Challenge #GDP015
I’m back on the challenge merry go round this week, entering #GDP015, with this celebration card using Balloon Celebration by Stampin’ Up! from the upcoming new Spring/Summer 2016 Catalogue.
I just couldn’t resist this stamp set and matching punch combination when I first saw it and remarkably it has sat untouched on my shelf since it arrived last week in my pre-order. I have been itching to use it, but have resisted (until now) as I am still desperately trying to finish off Christmas craft projects before it’s too late. Just look at that balloon punch out! What do you think?
I love, love, love, it!! I was toying with making this a New Year’s card by adding 2016 to it, but decided against doing so, as the card can be used for any celebration now! Besides I already have a card in my head for New Year’s. It just needs to get out of my head and on to paper!
I did a quick wash of Real Red ink on to Watercolour paper and dried it with my heat tool, before stamping the pattern on to the balloon (also in Real Red) and punching the balloon out. The little splatters around the edges are from an awesome new set that will be a perfect partner to Gorgeous Grunge – it’s called Timeless Textures and you can be sure you’ll be seeing as much of that stamp set on my blog as you do Gorgeous Grunge!
Give me more time and I’ll have more projects to share with you using Balloon Celebrations by Stampin’ Up! and the matching punch. Both of which will be available to order from January 5th.
