Blog Hop Practice Run LoL :P

Ok Stampers! Today I did an amazing card that I'm super happy with for the Blog Hop we (Crazy Crafters) have coming up on 3 April CASing Dawn Griffith - do check back in for that! But I used the amazing Sale-A-Bration stamp set "Party Pants" which will only be available until 31 March for the card & it's no good showing you guys an awesome stamp set that's no longer available, is it? So you're lucky & you get to see this card today instead (& then back to the drawing board for me! haha!)

Here is the card I have come up with:


I have used the Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper for this card, which is double sided kraft cardstock with matte colour geometric designs printed on one side & metallic designs printed on the other. The colours look so vibrant against the kraft! I have cut a 12x12" sheet in half to make two cards from it. I have layered it with the reverse side of the same cardstock.


I have used my Balloon Punch for the balloons & the sentiments are all from the Party Pants Sale-A-Bration stamp set. This is a really cute stamp set! If you love making birthday cards, it's a great one for your stash! I have layered the inside of the card with a piece of Whisper White cardstock & stamped the border with Bermuda Bay using the hearts & dots from the Birthday Blooms stamp set.


I have layered the card with Silver Foil & Silver Metallic Glitter Tape (also a Sale-A-Bration item) & I have used Silver Metallic Thread for the balloon strings. All the stamping has been done with Archival Black ink so that it doesn't smudge off the print on this DSP - it's a really clean, crisp black to use & it's permanent so once it's dry, it doesn't smudge or run.

So here is Dawn's card that I was casing:
