Balloons are so much fun—especially MFT’s Pumped-Up Alphabet and Pumped-Up Numbers Die-namics! I hadn’t used them for a while so this was the perfect opportunity to remedy that!
To begin, I created my background by using Sweet Tooth card stock, Mini Cloud Edges and Grassy Edges Stencils with Blue Breeze and Gumdrop Green dye ink, stamping the sentiment from BB Birthday Buds Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink, and adhering it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.
Next I cut Pumped-Up Alphabet and Pumped-Up Numbers Die-namics from Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper sponged with Dried Marigold, Broken China, Shabby Shutters, and Spun Sugar Distress Inks and popped them up on the card front with foam tape.
Then I stamped the image from BB Birthday Buds on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, paper pieced the hat using Birthday Brights Paper Pad, and coloring with Copic markers. Once that was done I popped it up on foam tape, as well, and added baker’s twine from the balloons to his trunk for the finish!
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you can find the time to have some balloon fun, too! See you soon!
