Color splash alert! Today's card plays with Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point and Peach Parfait. All these colors were inspired by Ice Cream Parlor Designer Series Paper (available exclusively during Sale-A-Bration). I added one of the patterns to the envelope flap for a little coordinating polish.
New punch behind the sentiment? No, it's a splendid variation using the Stampin' Up! Decorative Label Punch submitted by Stampin' Pretty reader, Tracey. She thought it would be a good idea for a 1 Minute to "WOW" Video Tutorial and I immediately agreed. Oh, how I adore the versatility of my Stampin' Up! Punches!
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- The fun checkerboard background was inspired by Amy Gehman, one of my Stampin' Pretty Pals, who shared this card in an earlier post.
- The 3/4" x 15/16" Oval Punch (120908) for the balloon is not in any current Stampin' Up! catalog but IS a carryover (still available) from the Holiday Mini. Click for all Holiday Mini Carryover items.
- Quick variation . . . revamp the color palette and substitute the oval with a heart (Heart to Heart Punch, #119881). True love!
- Line up your brads with precision using a Paper Piercing Tool and the Stampin' Up! Mat Pack Piercing Template. Learn how on this video.
