Birthday, Challenges, Flowers, Stampin' Up!

Balloon Celebration as flowers

Dear Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Pals Paper Arts. The challenge this week is an Colour Challenge PPA#283.


As soon as I saw this colour challenge, I knew I had to give it a go! This is one of my favourite colour combinations.

I started with a Mint Macaron card base and added some coordinating dsp which I sponged the edges.

Next I stamped the images onto Whisper White card stock using the Memento Black Inkpad. The stems are from the Flower Patch stamp set, as is the sentiment, but those flowers are actually from the Balloon Celebration stamp set. Yes, it is that “wheel” looking stamp that we all looked at and wondered what on earth it goes with in the theme of the balloon celebration stamps. It had me stumped for days, but I was determined to have a play and work out exactly what I could create.

The flowers are coloured with the Stampin’ Write Markers, Melon Mambo and Mint Macaron. I stamped the dotty circle image onto vellum and punched it out with the 3/4″ circle punch.

I added each vellum circle with a glue dot and then added a large pearl to the centre of each flower.

Check out that gorgeous white jute ribbon behind, adding the perfect amount of texture!!!
