Uniko Studio - Balloon Bash ....

...  Hello again!  I'm back to introduce the first of four mini-sets from Uniko Studio - Balloon Bash.  All the sets being released will be available on Wednesday 11th February at Uniko Studio.  We're celebrating Uniko Studio's 3rd Birthday and you always need balloons at a birthday party.  Here's my card:

Stamps: Uniko Studio - Balloon Bash, All Occasion Sentiments #2, Fontiments - Birthday, Simply Said - Birthday
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Real Red;


I've used the colours from this week's Colour Q challenge - cQc#278 - they are so bright and such fun!  I've gone for quite a clean simple look.  I cut a mat layer of red card just smaller than the card base and then a panel of white card.  I stamped a simple birthday sentiment using stamps from a couple of older Uniko sets.  Then I went to town and created my balloons.  I stamped two oval balloons  in shades of pink, over stamped with a couple of the smaller stamps from Balloon Bash - love the little confetti style images.  I stamped the third balloon in orange, added some tiny flowers and then fussy cut all the balloons.  I stamped a background of stars and bubbles (the little confetti style stamps) onto the card base.  I stamped the balloon strings and added a large bow to look like the balloons are tied to the birthday greeting.  On the inside of the card I cut another mat layer of red card and on the white panel stamped a greeting (a sneak peek of another new set) and added some more confetti.
