Birthday Balloon

If I need a jumpstart to my creativity, I find the quickest way, is to go to one of the many cards I have pinned on Pinterest. Either I make it exactly the same or I change it up a little. Once I've made one, I find more ideas flow from that.

Going back awhile, I was so inspired by Amber Rain Davis' card using the Altenew Whimsical Herringbone stamp.

So I made a very similar one, but I used more masculine colours and instead of the die cut sentiment, I stamped.

Now I was left with the tiny strip leftover.

I rather like CAS cards and wondered how to use it. Fitted perfectly into the gap in the striped stamp from the Tie Dye set (I bought it for those little stripes!!)

Added a balloon, a sentiment and liquid pearl dots. Voila!

  1. Two fab cards, Janet! Especially love how you utilized the cut out strip on your balloon card - genius!!

  2. Terrific that you were able to create two wonderful cards out of the same supplies, Janet. Love your version of 'lines'. Thank you for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week. x

  3. That is such an awesome way to get more from your supplies. Both gorgeous, but the CAS one is right up my street. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards , hope to see you join in with future challenges too. Stay safe and keep crafting!

  4. How wonderful to make the 2 cards - Love the colourfulness of them both. I also love how you have started by looking at inspiration from others....I'm sure we all do that and isn't it lovely that we can all share. Chantell Just Add Ink

  5. Terrific cards, Janet! It's always a treat seeing your designs in the CASology gallery.
