Happy Monday! It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge! This week’s inspiration is a fun toucan balloon print!
I love the new bundle, Bonanza Buddies! I couldn’t wait to use it on this challenge, it came together SO quickly! Such CUTE little animals in this set!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Pineapple Punch cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White cardstock.
- A 1-1/2 x 4-1/4 piece of Birthday Bonanza Designer Paper was added across the front.
- The Layered Circle was cut from Pineapple Punch cardstock and added on top.
- Let’s Celebrate You from Bonanza Buddies stamp set was stamped with Memento Black on a 3/8 x 4-3/4 piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and added over the circle.
- The toucan from Birthday Buddies was stamped with Memento Black Ink and his beak colored with Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody and Pineapple Punch Markers. He was cut with the Bonanza Dies and added to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The birthday hat was stamped with Pumpkin Pie Ink and added to the head, then a red pom-pom was added at the top with Tombow Multipurpose Glue and then added with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional to the card.
- The balloon was stamped with Poppy Parade Ink on scrap Whisper White and cut with the Bonanza Die, then the string stamped with Memento Black and hand-cut. Both were added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A Rhinestone was added to the balloon.
How fun is this card??? I’m sure one of my grand-kids will get this card for their birthday this year! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
