Today’s card was inspired by a “cool” color combination from my Inspired by Color board on Pinterest.  Be sure to follow my board for fresh and modern color combinations to inspire your card making.  NEW color ideas are added all the time!


  • The Confetti Embossing Folder from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog creates a festive background for the bouquet of balloons.
  • Balloons Aren’t Just for Kids! The Silver Glimmer balloons and fresh color combination give this card a bit of sophisticated “fun”.
  • The balloons are cut using the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and the Balloon Bouquet Punch.  They coordinate beautifully!  The punch also was used to create the Island Indigo layer below the detailed balloons.
