I haven't been around much lately. Still finding some time here and there to work on some mini scrapbooks but mostly been getting my kiddo prepared for his big day. First day of Kindergarten. Where does the time go?
Anywhoo, I decided to play along with this weeks Mojo Monday sketch since I had a couple of birthday cards I needed to make.
I got out my Simon's Says stamp September Card making kit for this one. I knew I wanted to use the balloons. So I stamped the outline with Staz On Jet Black Ink and the inside with Stampin' up's Melon Mambo. Then fussy cut them out. My fussy cutting leave a lot to be desired. I can't cut anything out well...no idea why.
The sentiment was placed on a 3x3 inch square in the same Melon Manbo color. I also inked the edges.
The next layer was from the patterned paper in the collection. The doily behind that is from Recollections. I picked that up last winter when the Christmas things were on sale.
I added some blue hemp for the balloon strings. All the layers were added to a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch white cards base.
All done! I made two of these while I had everything out so I am all set.
