Balloon Celebration by Stampin’ Up! – another sneak peek

Balloon Celebration by Stampin’ Up! – another sneak peek

I’m back with project two using Balloon Celebration by Stampin’ Up! this week. Again I am going to be entering the Global Design Project #GDP015, whose theme is celebrate and also Retro Sketches again, as I used their sketch for the second time.

Balloon Celebration by Stampin’ Up! is definitely becoming a firm favourite and I love that you can create different looks just by changing colour and layout. This card is much softer and more subtle than the one I created on Monday, don’t you think?

I teamed the set up with the new Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper and coordinating Honeycomb Embellishments and took the colour scheme from those. You can just see a shimmer on the wooden sentiment, which I created using the clear Wink of Stella pen, also coming soon. I’m really spoiling you with all the sneak peeks on this card aren’t I? ย 😊

Let me know if you arenโ€™t on my catalogue mailing list but would like to be (UK, NL, DE, FR, AT only Iโ€™m afraid). I will send out catalogues between Christmas and New Year, so there will be plenty of time to have a good thumb through and get those wish lists written!

I still have a few Christmas projects to complete and I will share those if you aren’t all fed up with Christmas already but oh joy, oh joy, oh joy! The Christmas cards are all done! Bar one or two I’ve no doubt forgotten – I usually do as I have a few separate lists kept in separate places and formats. I really should consolidate but that would be bordering on organised, which I’ve never been on a personal front. Professionally I used to be very organised, as a Project Manager, so maybe that is why I rebelled in my personal life and went with ad hoc or spontaneous as I like to call it (in reality totally disorganised and scatty would be a better description)! 😆

Well that’s it from me today. See you tomorrow!
