Birthday Celebrations

Hi everyone, unusually for me I’m back with a second post today as I have made a card for some special birthday celebrations in blogland. If you would like to see this morning’s Tracy Evans floral card, please go here.

Bev at Uniko is celebrating the brand’s 12th birthday so has a special celebration challenge and blog hop here with some superb inspiration and fabulous prizes. I have made my card using only Uniko stamps and stencils.

It is also a 10th birthday celebration at Time Out, so this card was also made with that in mind.  Here it is.

I cut a square of white stamping card and blended Versamark through the balloon stencil (one balloon at a time!) and heat embossed with 3 colours of embossing glitter. I stamped the balloon strings in grey so they would not look too harsh, then added the stamped sentiment in blue. A few little stamped stars, edging of the panel in blue and matting onto silver mirri card, and it was job done! I love how easy it is to create CAS cards with Uniko designs. 

Here's an angled pic to show the extreme glitteriness (is that a word??).

Stamps: Uniko Balloon Bash, Birthday Sentiments;
Media: Versafine Clair (Morning Mist, Medieval Blue, Charming Pink); Versamark; WOW embossing glitter (Midnight Dream, Fruit Tingle, Silver Sparkle);
Tools: Uniko stencil - Balloon Bash.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Simon Says (Wednesday) - Anything Goes
Time Out #257 - Time Out 10th Birthday

Uniko - 12th Birthday Celebration

Take care, and thanks for visiting.

Oo yes a bit of glitter to celebrate a birthday! Having only just discovered glitter embossing powder myself recently (yes I know, where have I been??!!) this is beautiful to see and gives me some ideas too. Thanks for joining in with Uniko’s 12th birthday celebrations. X

Fabulous sparkly balloons and what a great idea to add the embossing ink through the stencil they turned out awesomely for so many celebrations. The lucky recipient will also love it. Thanks for playing along with us at AAA Cards too.
