Guest Designer – JUGS Challenge #310 Trend Week – Balloons

Hi! I’m excited to be here with you today with a card for Just Us Girls Challenge #310 Trend Week – Balloons.


I’m very happy to be Guest Designing for Just Us Girls for the month of September! This is my second post  as JUGS’ GD this month. I hope that you enjoy the DT cards, along with mine, and are inspired to play along. 🙂

IMG_0275editedI used PTI’s Polka Dot basics II and my NBUS SU Celebrate Today stamp sets to make this card. I also used an Avery Elles’ Pinked rectangle die and the balloon die is from SU. I’m going to play along at Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #200 Let’s Celebrate, Darnell’s NBUS Challenge #5, SSS Monday’s Stamp And Punch/Die Cut and SSS Wednesday’s Simon Says STAMPtember® Use A Stamp Challenge And Blog Hop.

IMG_0278editedI did some ink-blending on the balloon on this fun and bright birthday card.  All paper and ink are Stampin’ Up, with the exception on the black ink which is VersaFine. I also used a Uni-ball Signo white gel pen to do some tracing and highlighting and a gold one to add some sparkle to the stamped confetti image on the balloon. I finished it off with a little gold enamel dot from PTI’s Make it Market : Garden Gild Set and some SU! gold thread.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is so gorgeous…Love the inked background and layers of stamping here. So glad you joined our 200th Challenge at Word Art Wednesday last week. We have a new Challenge today and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God’s Word in Colossians 2:6-8 which says, “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.” Have a blessed day!
