Hot Air Balloon Birthday

Over the next 12 days, I will be posting my Birthday Series creations with all of you!  For this series, I will be sharing a variety of birthday card ideas!  If you are attending my 1st Annual Birthday Bash today then you will be the first to see and make all 12 of the birthday designs in one day! 🙂

The first card in my birthday series was designed from the “You’re Amazing” stamp set that I received at the 2012 Stampin’ Up! convention!  Initially, I was not to sure what to create with the images in this set.  However, after receiving a few swaps and seeing some pics on Pinterest, I finally was inspired to create something!  I wanted to use the core’dination cardstock…that’s the sandable cardstock that we were introduced to in the Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog.  I used two different types:  the gumball green (from the holiday catalog) and pool party (from the spring catalog).  The very cool thing about this type of cardstock is that once you emboss them you are able to sand the raised edges to achieve a weathered look.  Visit http://bit.ly/13LC6f6 to check out the core’dination cardstock and other cool products!
