Sky High Birthday
Here is a fun card from the Up, Up & Away (122757) stamp set.
Use Midnight Muse cardstock cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" for your background. Cut paper from Summer Smooches(#125409) patterned paper set to 3 3/4 x 5" and adhere on top of the cardstock.
2. Using stamps from the Up, Up & Away stamp set, stamp 3 overlapping balloons using the Masking technique. Stamp these on Summer Starfruit cardstock in Midnight Muse, Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple. Loosely cut out around the balloons and strings.
3. Use the birthday stamp from the same set to stamp your greeting on white cardstock in Raspberry Ripple. Punch the greeting out using the Extra-Large Oval(#119859) punch. Ink the edges of the oval on the Midnight Muse classic ink pad. I am really starting to love these newly reformated ink pads. They are so juicy that you really don't have to work at direct to paper inking!
4. Adhere this to the bottom left corner and the balloons to the top right corner. For fun, you might stamp "the sky's the limit" on the inside from this same set.
