MFT - The Birthday Project Challenge

Hello there! I'm back with a new The Birthday Project challenge from My Favorite Things that rolled out last month.

 The Birthday Project challenge will be posted on the third Thursday of the month and feature ideas for getting creative with your birthday card making. Enter the monthly challenge for a chance to win a $50 MFT gift voucher!

This month we're focusing on balloons. You can add a single balloon or cover your entire card with it. I had so much fun with this challenge that I couldn't stop after making one card, so I have two cards to share with you using the same supplies.

To begin, I stamped the images on a Blending Card. I colored them with Copics and cut them out with coordinating dies. 

To created the front panels for both cards, I die-cut acetate to make balloon stencils with two of the balloon dies from Ballon Stax Die-namics. I stenciled in the balloons with various Premium Dye Inks on the panels as shown.  (listed on link deli)

The sentiment "Celebrate" was embossed with silver embossing powder and "It's Your Birthday" with black ink in both cards.

To finish the first card, I mounted the four monsters with mounting tape. For the second card, I added a die-cut balloon that I blended with a dye ink and a green monster. I wanted to make him look like he's floating up and away with the ballon. That's it for today!

details and more inspiration from the participating design team.

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day and happy cardmaking!!
