Balloon Celebration

I recently attended a fundraiser day held by Pat Carr where we had a great time stamping and catching up with friends.  We made some terrific projects and raised funds for the Cancer Council while we where at it, what a great day.  Thank you Pat for hosting the day.

My first card is a cross between two cards that we made on the day, I have used the colours and the layout of the balloons from one card and the paper pieced strip section on the bottom from another card.  I really liked this idea of using up all those little strips of paper that you seem to have left over.

My second card is also using the same balloon layout and colours but this time I attached 2 cm strips of Designer Series Paper on the background piece.    This is another great way of using up strips of paper.  I love the colour combination of Blushing Bride/Melon Mambo, Soft Sky/Mint Macaron and So Saffron/Crushed Curry used on the balloons they just pop (no pun intended) on the Whisper White.

The patterned paper is from the "It's My Party" Designer Series Paper Stack.  This pack is one that keeps on giving, with 48 sheets of 12" x 12" with 4 pages each of 12 doubled-sided designs.  It is perfect for birthday invitations, cards, favours and decorations.

Thank you for visiting.



  1. Beautiful! Love both of these ideas, especially the first one. Did you hand cut the wave? So fun and festive!

    1. Hi Michelle, yes I did hand cut the wave. Cheers, Carolyn.

  2. What embossing folder did you use?

    1. I used the Softly Falling Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!
