Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop

Saturday, July 25, 2009

Hey guys! While you are reading this, I'm in the middle of my little girl's birthday party. I wanted to make sure I had a card ready to post and I'll have to sneak away to post a link on the Papertrey Ink Forum. This month, blog hop participants were to make a card/project using text of any kind. I chose to use a page from a magazine.

I used Everyday Button Bits as for my stamp set. I love this set (so glad I was able to get it before they were sold out!). I used my Coluzzle to cut out the big circle and the small ovals. The edges of the ballons are sponged with pink ink, but it didn't really show up in the picture. I cut little pink triangles to make it look like a real balloon with a knot.
Here's a close up to show that the balloons are popped up on foam dimensionals. If you want to see all of the other blog hop entries, click -->HERE and look for "July Blog Hop" and then "list of participants".
Have a great rest of your weekend and enjoy the hop!

Cute card! Love the way you showed how Button Basics doesn't have to be used with just buttons. Great use of text. Glad you could sneak away from the party to link it up -- and hope the birthday girl has an extra happy day!

Great idea to use a magazine! Maybe I'll start with that since I can't imagine tearing up a book...

Too cute! Love the text on your balloons, and how you created the "ribbon" for them!
