Rise to the Occasion

Nothing quite says celebration like a bouquet of colourful balloons. For this month's Die-namics Design Challenge we are sharing cards created with balloon Die-namics. I have a trio of cards to share with you today, they all feature the fabulous Blueprints 26 Die-namics. I LOVE this set of dies!

For this first card, I die-cut the balloons in Razzle Berry card stock and a print from the Dots & Stripes Sorbet Patterned Paper. For the happy sentiment, I adhered some Scor Tape to the back of a piece of Razzle Berry card stock before I die-cut it. This makes adhering the die-cut to the card super simple. The birthday day sentiment is from the Birthday Chalkboard Greetings stamp set.

My second card features three balloons die-cut in Black Licorice, Razzle Berry, and the Dots & Stripes Sorbet Patterned Paper. When I die-cut the balloon strings and bows, I used the same trick as on the previous card. I adhered the adhesive to the card stock before I die-cut it. It works so well on thin little pieces like these strings. The fun sentiment is from the new Birthday Wishes and Balloons stamp set.

For my final card, I used the super cool large balloon edge die to cut a piece of the patterned paper from the Dots & Stripes Sorbet Patterned Paper. The balloon string was die-cut in Razzle Berry card stock. I finished off the card with a few enamel dots.
