This week at Just Add Ink, Trish has come up with a very cool theme .... just add balloons, to your papercraft project.

I have made a card for a little boy.  I don't actually know any kidlets turning 3, but the number of balloons I added to my card determined that the card would be for a 3 year old!

Starting off, I chose the cute starry paper from Stampin' Up!'s Snow Festival Designer Series Paper pack.  My Color Coach suggested I team Gumball Green with Marina Mist and Midnight Muse - and what a cool colour combination it is! 

Stamps: Button Buddies, Memorable Moments, Itty Bitty Banners, Owl Occasions
Card: Gumball Green, Whisper White, Midnight Muse
DSP: Snow Festival Designer Series Paper
Ink: Gumball Green, Marina Mist and Midnight Muse stampin' pads
Other: Labels Collection framelits dies, Bitty Banners framelits, Midnight Muse stitched satin ribbon, Square Lattice embosssing folder, 1" and 1 1/4" Circle punches, sponge dauber, glue dots, Post-It note (for masking), paper snips

  2. Gosh you are right this colour combo is smashing!! I just adore that star dsp :)

  5. Gorgeous and very fun little boys card Christine. Love how you used two banners for the sentiment down the bottom - great effect!xxx

  6. Pigs might fly huh!! This is a fun take on the challenge Christine and the colours and banners are most certainly going in my case file. xxx

  7. Fab colour combo, Christine and such a cute card too. Love the little diamond created by the banner sentiments - a super idea.
