This is the final card I have to share from my stamping session with Brandi. This cute stamp set immediately caught my eye. It also had a super cute doodled rainbow that I wish I would have had time to play with, but that'll be for next time, I guess.
There's lots of layering on this one, but the putting together is quite easy to reproduce. I started by die-cutting the oval out of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the clouds in Bashful Blue. I didn't bother with masking since I knew I wanted to paper piece the balloon and could therefore hide the clouds. I stamped the balloon three times: once on my oval die-cut, a second time on the patterned paper and the third time, I only inked the pennants with a Melon Mambo marker and stamped them on a scrap of white cardstock before paper piecing it to the balloon.
The colour combo was really close to the colours used in the hostess paper pack, so that was the starting point of my card. I added some polka dot scallop ribbon and a button held with baker's twine on the bow. The sentiment, from the You're a Gem set, was punched with the smallest oval punch.
