Happy Birthday Gorgeous for Creation Station

I’ve created two very different cards using this versatile stamp set – my something new.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous card for Creation Station from theartfulinker.com

My first card is a clean and simple card.

It used a color combination of Night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White.

I stamped balloons from Happy Birthday Gorgeous in Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist on Whisper White.

Then, I added an accent balloon stamped in Night of Navy on Lemon Lime Twist.

My something old is the Balloon Bouquet Punch.

After punching the balloons, I added Whisper White Baker’s Twine for the balloon strings.

Then, I stamped Happy Birthday in Night on Navy on Whisper White.

Using the Pretty Label Punch, I cut out the sentiment before

adding it with Dimensionals.

My second Happy Birthday Gorgeous for Creation Station card

took a twist!

I used an Aqua Painter to create a Lemon Lime Twist background on Watercolor Paper.

Then, I adhered this panel to a base of Berry Burst.

I stamped seven balloons in Berry Burst on Whisper White.

Again, I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to cut them out.

Next, I arranged the balloons like flower petals.

After adding a ¾” Circle Punch of Night of Navy and a Clear Faceted Gem,

I attached the flower to the watercolored layer with Dimensionals.

Using leaves from Happy Birthday Gorgeous, stamped in Tranquil Tide.

For the sentiment and its border I used stamps from the same set and inked them in Berry Burst and Night of Navy.

The Classic Label Punch is another “something old”.

Under the sentiment is a ¾” Circle Punch of Silver Glimmer Paper.

And, the final accentes are Glitter Enamel Dots.

    I think your cards are amazing! Your balloons made into a flower are pure brilliance. I’m going to have to borrow that idea for sure.
