Golden Balloons – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

Hi there! I’m back with post number two for today! I have the pleasure of being a Guest Designer for Concord & 9th this month along with the rest of the fabulous Design Team over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! For the next three Friday’s we will be featuring a new product from the August Release! This week it’s the awesome Happy Balloons Stamps and Dies!

Any of you that know me know that I love a little heat embossing on Vellum! I thought that the balloons would look pretty cool done that way! Three of the balloons from the Happy Balloons Photopolymer Stamp Set are heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto 65lb Vellum. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. They are adhered to each other and my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Multi-Matte Medium that is strategically placed! My greeting is also heat embossed in Gold onto a piece of Solar White 110lb that is cut out with the banner die from the set. I added some Gold Thread to the balloons and then adhered the greeting banner to the card. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins add a bit more sparkle and the card is done! Isn’t that a fun stamp set and I love the that the overlapped balloons sort of make a heart!

I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer card for Concord & 9th! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of talented Teammate’s projects! I thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your Friday! 🙂

Fab Friday 119

Fab Friday 119

It’s Friday already?! That was another quick week! I had a fun day with my friend Sue. We worked on Etsy stuff and went out to have some lunch. There was a little stop at Marshall’s before we headed back to her house to finish up a little more stuff before I headed home. Last night we had Thirsty Thursday at Heather’s. Stephanie was there and Taylor stopped by for a few. This morning, more things to cross off my to-do list! 😀

It’s a Fab Friday week and we have a fun sketch for you…

I got my August My Monthly Hero Kit and had to have a little play! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Galvanized Curious Metallic. I used the large die from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit to cut out a piece of Black 110lb. The little boy on the moon is heat embossed in Hero Arts Sparkle Embossing Powder onto another piece of Black 110lb and cut out with the Coordinating Die. I adhered the large Black die cut to the card with Black 3D Foam Squares and the boy on the moon with E-Z Runner. My greeting is also from the set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Black Sparkle Embossing Powder onto another piece of Galvanized Curious Metallic. I flagged the right side and used a few more Black 3D Foam Squares to adhere it to the card. For some more sparkle I added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins! I love the August Hero Kit, so much fun! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! Check out the rest of the Team’s cards over on the BLOG and let’s see your take on the sketch in the gallery! Thanks for stopping by this morning! I’ll be back on a little while with another post for you! Until then have a fabulous Friday morning! 🙂
