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”
Memento Tuxedo Black- to stamp the balloons for coloring, for inside sentiment
Classic Stampin’ Ink Pads:

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!
