I love the colors (Azure Afternoon, Lemon Lolly, and Bubble Bath) in the Sheer Ribbon Combo Pack, and that was the beginning for today’s card.

Ribbon and Balloons


To show off the ribbon, I stamped three balloons from the Beautiful Balloons Stamp Set, in the same three colors of ink, on Basic White Cardstock, 3 7/8″ X 5 1/8″. 

The stamp set has two-step stamping for the balloons, so I used the stamps to add some texture. After stamping the balloons, I stamped balloon strings with Memento Black Ink. You can see the all of the stamps in my Product List below.

The card base is Basic White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, topped with Zoo Crew Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″.  Doesn’t the 1/16″ border of black and white designer paper make the colors “POP?” LOL


The birthday greeting is from the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. After cutting, “wishing you the happiest of birthdays,” with its Sentiments Silhouettes Die, I attached it to the card front with Dimensionals.

The last detail was adding the knotted ribbon to the balloons with Glue Dots.



I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
