Celebrate with Stampin' Up! Balloon Builders!

Stampin' Up! Balloon Builders Stamp Set is so much fun to create many sweet celebrations, endless adorable animal creatures, and of course balloons!

This week's DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge inspired a celebration!   Every celebration should have something sweet!


Let me show you how I was able to create this sweet birthday cupcake card with Stampin' Up! Balloon Builders Stamp Set!

So, lets get started with the fun!

Cut two Watermelon Wonder Cardstock 5 x 6 1/2 and one 2 x 4, one Crushed Curry Cardstock 4 3/4 x 6 1/4, and Whisper White Cardstock 4 3/4 x 6 1/4 and 1 3/4 x 3 3/4.  Inks used Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry, and Soft Sky.  Balloon Builders Stamp Set, Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set, Swirly Scribbles Thinlets, and Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Die cut right side of Crushed Curry Cardstock with Swirly Scribbles Thinlets and mat on Watermelon Wonder Cardstock.

Emboss Crushed Curry Cardstock with Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Lightly sponge Crushed Curry Ink on to embossed cardstock to highlight 'strings' of design.

Stamp two sizes of watercolor images of balloons in Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry, and Soft Sky Ink on watercolor paper.

Stamp cupcake on watercolor paper.  Stamp strawberry frosting with the upside down heart balloon in Watermelon Wonder Ink and Soft Suede Ink for the sprinkles!  Add the short thin balloon as the candle.  Stamp the cake in Soft Suede and blend color with an aqua painter.  It looks delicious!

Cut around balloons and cupcake with paper snips.

Stamp splashes of color with the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry, and Soft Sky Ink on 1 3/4 x 3 3/4 Whisper White Cardstock.  Mat on Watermelon Wonder Cardstock.

Stamp hash lines vertical in Crushed Curry and horizontal in Soft Sky ink.  Cut out sentiment tag with paper snips and mat on Watermelon Wonder Cardstock.

Stamp sentiments in Tuxedo Black ink.

For inside of card stamp splatters with Gorgeous Grunge.  Add balloon strings with Balloon Builders in Tuxedo Black ink.  Mat on Watermelon Wonder Cardstock.

Add balloons and sentiment banner.

 Stamp strings in Tuxedo Black and adhere small panel, cupcake, and balloons with dimensionals.  Enjoy this delicious treat!
