It’s A Party! CTS#29

Hello Again!

My Second Post for Today!

I couldn’t pass up this Sketch Challenge from

CAS(E) this Sketch #266


Here is my Card!


Here is the inside of my Card!



And you know…I have to make a matching envelope!


The Stock and Measures:

unless noted, all items are from Stampin’Up!


Bermuda Bay- card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ score @ 4 1/4″, fold in half on the score

Whisper White- inside panel 4″ X 5 1/4″, and a piece to stamp the balloons on

Basic Black- for the word “celebrate”

Ink Pads:

Memento Tuxedo Black- to stamp the balloons for coloring, for inside sentiment

Classic Stampin’ Ink Pads:

Bermuda Bay- balloons

Berry Burst- balloons

Lemon Lime Twist- balloons


Picture Perfect Party- front panel and slanted piece, inside strip


Big Shot-die cutting machine

Celebrate You Thinlits- “celebrate”


White Gel Pen- to draw the reflecting light lines on the balloons


Here is my Card again!


Do you ever buy something that you really like and then you set it aside?

I did that with this DSP stack…This DSP has real photos (like the bottom balloons)

and it has printed paper (like the confetti look). I fell in love when I saw it in the

Catalog, I HAD to have it…then I put it in the 6″ X 6″ storage container and I forgot

all about it! When I saw this Sketch Challenge, right away I wanted to do balloons.

I was trying to decide the background and I pulled the container down and flipped

through all the sheet of DSP, and these 2 patterns were my decision for the Card!

I wouldn’t describe it as hoarding, because I will use it, and then try to use it all up!

I don’t know…maybe getting the fever for the New Catalog Peek I will be able to

peruse tomorrow! Trying to use up my stash before I order the NEW Stuff!

We shall see how restrained I will be…I do have to say, I did good restraining on the

Occasions Catalog…I resisted quite a bit! Maybe I was saving for the New Catalog!!!

We shall see!


Until the next Post…Blessings and Party Feelings to you ALL!

  1. This one is great, too! 💖
    I definitely need to step up my game on the inside of the cards and the envelopes as well.

Let me know what you think!
