I made a panel for PTI"s Make It Monday #128: Stamping Random Background Patterns with the confetti stamp from Birthday Style using four different inks and then wasn't sure what to do with. I had been thinking of a birthday card, but it just wasn't coming together for me, so I put it aside.
After flipping through my PTI dies this morning, I decided to try a partial die cut of the "thankful" die and the card came together pretty quickly after that.
I absolutely love the image Cath has given us for the Tuesday Trigger: It's Completely Collagical!
The colors stood out to me more than the images and I was reminded of some older Prima paper that I knew was kicking around the office somewhere. I rarely use 12x12 patterned paper these days, but have so many favorites that I still hoard and occassionally thumb through.
The papers have so much going on that I really only needed to selectively trim them and add a simple sentiment.
My last card is for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Trend Watch: Sheer and Clear and this inspiration photo.
I stamped the balloons from Hullabaloo on several shades of pink & purple vellum scraps and fussy cut them out. A touch of liquid adhesive along the black outline was enough to adhere them to the panel.
Thanks for stopping by,
