Join us for this month’s Die-namics Design as we go up, up, and away with projects featuring balloon Die-namics. Patterned, painted, textured, and peek-a-boo – so many fun embellishing options with this iconic image that just says party. Celebrate with us, won’t you?
What a fun challenge!! MFT has a great variety of balloon Die-namics and today I’m using Balloon STAX Die-namics for my card. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then trimmed down a piece of Blue Breeze card stock to work my design. I stamped the sentiment, from Blue Skies Ahead, at the bottom with Black Licorice dye ink and the rest of the design was achieved with Die-namics. The sun was cut with Blueprints 20 Die-namics from Daffodil card stock, the clouds with Cloud Cover-Up Die-namics and Sweet Tooth card stock, and the Balloon STAX Die-namics cut from several pieces of stamped up backgrounds from my scrap drawer. Left to right: LJD Spring Backgrounds on Sweet Tooth card stock with Wild Cherry dye ink, LJD Darling Dots on Orange Zest card stock with Sweet Tooth pigment ink, and Damask Background on Sweet Tooth card stock with Lush Lagoon dye ink. I added some hemp cord strings and popped them up on foam mounting tape. I finished off with some enamel dots and some stars cut with Blueprints 25 Die-namics and wood veneer paper.
And that’s it for today! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!
