Seize the Birthday - Rainbow



Hello there!  I can't believe how fast the two months have flown by and I am now at my final post as the Surprise Party Guest for Seize the Birthday (STBf)!  I want to thank the team at STB, in particular Nancy, for having me join them this summer.  I've enjoyed playing along with the optional toppings and this one was no different because I love Rainbows!


Rainbow cards are always so cheery and fun.  Here's my clean and simple (CAS) birthday card.


On a stitched rectangle die cut from Whisper White cardstock, the HB2U was stamped with Memento black ink, then masked.  Next, took a DIY die cut balloon stencil in my supply and blended distress inks in rainbow colours with a mini blending tool.  On three of them, I double stencilled by inking through a Shooting Star stencil over top of the balloon stencil.  



Drew in the balloon strings with a black Copic multiliner.  Heat embossed the sentiment from the same set with white embossing powder on a black strip.  Adhered the panel to a white card base, then added Crystal Glaze to HB2U for some shine and dimension.  Popped the sentiment strip up on some foam tape to finish.



And that concludes my time with the ladies at STB.  For more fabulous inspirations, head over to the  STB blog HERE.  Hope to see you in the gallery.  Thank you for your time.  Have a wonderful day!

those rainbow balloons are beautiful Trina, and the crystal glaze on the HB2U gives so much dimension.

This is such a fantastic card! The HB2U looks like it is popped up, not like its actually the same layer - I was so surprised when I read that! The balloons look absolutely fabulous too! Thank you so much for being a fabulous Party Guest and such a wonderful inspiration!

The diagonal of stencilled balloons is just perfect and the addition of the balloon bubble letters is brilliant! Lots of fabulous empty white space too! Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.

This is a delightful card, Trina. Like the abbreviated sentiment...HB2U. It's sure to appear some way on the next birthday card I make. tfs

This card is so much fun! The translucent look of you rainbow balloons is fantastic (also adore the stars on some of them) and the sentiment is adorable!

Barbara said...

This CAS card is just a light looking feel to tit with the balloons floating in the air. I love the look that you got with them. Thanks for being our Surprise Party Guest for Seize the Birthday.
