TGIF Challenges | TGIF #205 Bonus week!!! It's a party! | Birthday Statement Stamp Set

Hello, hello stamping friends! Welcome to my blog. Today I'm playing along and entering my card in the challenge over at TGIF Challenges | TGIF #205. It's a super fun Balloon Party Theme.


When I saw the TGIF theme for this week I knew exactly which set I wanted to use and play along with for this challenge, Stampin' Up!'s Birthday Statements stamp set. It's got the balloons. decorations and flowers, perfect for a party. I purchased this set a while ago but just hadn't had the chance to ink it up. Till now.

I've kept my card fairly CAS (clean and simple) as this image from the Birthday Statements set is quite busy. All it needs is a bit of colour and a little bit of trim. I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I used the Stampin' Up! Stamparatus Stamp Placement Tool when stamping the image so that I could repeatedly stamp the image, reink and stamp again to get a crisp, clean image with full ink coverage.

Once the Memento Ink dried I coloured the image in using the Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. The colours I used were Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Granny Apple Green but you can use whatever colour combination you like. Or even try a different colouring medium.

Just a little bit of Linen Thread, Gold Metallic Thread, Gold Mini Sequin Trim and a Heat Embossed Sentiment to finish off the card and that's all that it really needs.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
