Party Stamping

Merry Christmas eve to you! Several days have gone by since I have been able to put ink to paper. I think I was going into withdrawal. Lol. Well with Christmas cards in the wraps I thought I might do some birthday stamping. I made  three birthday/party cards with lots of sparkle.

 This starts with some 110lbs white cardstock that I stamped with Wonky Backdrops by Ellen Huston. Then sprayed the stamped pieces with Shimmer Spritz and die cut the letters. I also die cut the same letters from white glitter cardstock. Off set the letters and mounted them to a white 110 lbs cards base.

This card also started with a 110 lbs card base. Stamped the balloon from Concord and 9th's Hi There Bear set in Versafine black ink. Then stamped the balloon in various Stampin Up inks. Colored over the balloons with Wink of Stella. Celebrate greeting is from Honey Bee Stamps. I made some of the strings a little longer with a black journaling marker. One layer.

This card started with a WPlus9 printed vellum. I had never done that from a digital file before. I mounted the vellum onto white 110 lbs cardstock. Stamped the greeting from Essentials by Ellen in Versafine black ink and heat embossed in clear detail powder. Filled the crown with Glossy Accents and sprinkled glitter over it. I then mounted the panel to a black A2 card base with black fun foam to pop the panel up. 

Several of these cards will be entered in the challenges listed below:
