Birthday Chick’s Balloons


First, I punched the balloons in Basic White Cardstock, and used this as a stencil. Then, I placed the stencil on top of Basic White Cardstock (3″ X 4 3/4″), and with Sponge Daubers, I filled in the balloon “holes” with four colors of ink: Mint Macaron, Garden Green, Granny Apple Green, and Coastal Cabana.

I backed this with True Love Designer Paper, 1/4″ larger, to give it a fun, black & white border.


Next, I stamped “Happy Birthday,” from the Hey Birthday Chick Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink, and glued this to a Pool Party card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

The chick wanted to say “hello,” so we found the word in the Snailed It Stamp Set, stamped it in Memento Black Ink, and cut with its Snail Die.


Now, for the chick. I stamped her in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and added a touch of color with Stampin’ Blends: Granny Apple Green, Smoky Slate, Real Red, and Pumpkin Pie.

After backing her with Thick Basic White Cardstock for sturdiness, I attached her with Dimensionals, and she was ready to fly away.
