Balloon Adventures Stamp Set
The Balloon Adventures stamp set is one of the many amazing birthday stamp sets in the new occasions catalog.
Today I have a quick way to use this stamp set and create a fun birthday card.
Never Enough Birthday Cards
Let’s face it, we will never have enough birthday cards on hand. It’s not possible, at least for me anyway.
At first I asked myself did I really need another balloon stamp set? Quickly I thought no, but there are a few things about the Balloon Adventure stamp set that caught my eye.
- The fonts in the greetings of this stamp set are amazing. It is definitely something that caught my eye which makes designing SO much easier for me.
- Not one, but two coordinating ways to cut images in this set. The balloons coordinate with the Balloon Bouquet punch and the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies.
- Party Animal Suite coordinates with this stamp set perfectly.
Masking with Balloon Adventures
One of the ways you can quickly create fun birthday cards with this set is by masking the balloons.
The masking technique creates the illusion that one image is behind the other and creates depth. The first image you stamp is the image that will be in the front.
To mask using the Balloon Adventures stamp set you will need a simple Post-It Note. Stamp the image onto the Post-It Note and cut the image out just inside the lines. This is now your mask.
Stamp the image again onto your cardstock. Place your mask covering the image completely to protect it as you stamp the second time. I love using Post-It Notes because the adhesive sticks to the image and makes it easy to stamp over.
Stamp the image again, positioning the image partially onto the mask. This second image will appear to be behind the first. Continue to move your mask around to create more depth.
You can see how I created many balloons in a bunch using one mask in this picture below.
You can also see how I masked in the original card below. I love how they all look bunched together.
Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies
The new Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies are perfect to create an interactive card. Plus, another great thing I found is the banner attached with this thinlits.
The banner I created for this card is part of the pop-up. I simply trimmed in a couple of places on the cardstock to make the banner stand alone. Once it was die cut, I stamped the banner images from the Balloon Adventures stamp set.
