Timeout Challenge #151

Hey there! I am joining the talented Timeout Design Team today to celebrate a new challenge and Unikos' birthday!
We are inspired by words today. Use the phrase for your inspiration for a card, "It's your birthday, so party and throw acts of kindness around like confetti!" .

My card started with an white, top-folding card base that I stamped with Avery Elle's Circle It stamp set. I used Versamark ink and white detail embossing powder to heat emboss the confetti across the top of the card. I then embossed the greeting from the Stamploration's Power of Words stamp set on a white tag. Using blender brushes to blend the distress ink across the tag. I added Wink of Stella to give the balloon and confetti a little sparkle. I then added Nuvo Crystal glaze over the balloon, tied on the twine and popped up the tag with fun foam on the card front. I hope you will join us in the fun "Inspired by Words" challenge.

Happy 8th birthday Uniko and 
thanks for stopping by, Sue.


  1. Sue what a joy to have you join us for this challenge. And with such a stunning card. I do love that background of confetti, so subtle. And then what a fab sentiment-I have it and it hasn't been used but you have shown me how it can-thanks for the inspiration! And what gorgeous blending x

  2. What fun, subtle confetti, Sue, crowning that glowing ombré tag ... a wonderful combination! The shiny, glossy balloon is deliciously plump and celebratory! thanks so much for inspiring our players as our Guest Designer at Time Out! Anita :)
