Happy Birthday Creator - Balloons by Elin

Hi, crafty friends. Today is the first Friday of the month, which means it’s RAM Stamps release day. This month’s release is a birthday creator set. If you’re not familiar with the creator sets, they contain lots of different images that you can put together to create different scenes. There are so many options, the sky’s the limit for these. I chose to use this Balloon stamp only for this card, but do know there are lots of other images to choose from in this release.

I printed the image fairly small, I wanted it to fit the width of a portrait style A2 sized card. I colored the image with my Copics, going in somewhat of a rainbow order.

I covered the front of a card base with a piece of pink patterned paper with hearts. I don’t know where this patterned paper is from, it came in a mystery box from Simon Says Stamp a few years ago. I think it might be Doodlebug, based on some of the other patterns in the pack, but I’m not sure.

Above and below my colored piece, I added thin strips of Gold Shine cardstock from My Favorite Things, before mounting it all on foam tape near the top of the card.

I used the Sweet Sentiments die set from Altenew to  die cut the word celebrate. I die cut four out of white cardstock and one from the gold shine cardstock I used for the strips. I stacked them all together for dimension, and adhered the sentiment onto the balloon strings, before finishing off the card with a few sequins from the Heaven Sent mix from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

Happy color palette.

P.S. I apologize for the stray hair in the background on the flatlay photos, I didn’t notice it until I wrote this post. #keepingitreal
