Beautiful Balloons Card & NEW Catalogue Walk-Through

Happy New Annual Catalogue Day, friends!

Today I've got a special demo for you, with a walk-through of the new catalogue. There are samples, peeks at many new products, and a special project featuring all new colours, plus the DSP and stamp & die bundle from the Bright & Beautiful Suite. 

See my demo here.

To make this card, I started by using the brush tip of Azure Afternoon Stampin' Blends™ (dark) to colour a small length of Gold & Vanilla Satin Edged Ribbon. I then set it aside to dry well. Tip: place a piece of cardstock or several layers of paper underneath, as the alcohol markers will bleed through.

Next, I did my stamping with the brand new Beautiful Balloons Stamp Set. I stamped the large balloon in Bubble Bath ink, and the two smaller balloons in Azure Afternoon and Berry Burst inks. I also stamped the sentiment in Azure Afternoon, right onto the Bubble Bath balloon. 

I love these three new Core Colours - and they go beautifully together!

I used the Beautiful Balloons Dies to cut out the balloons. Here's a look at the new Beautiful Balloons Bundle, just in time for birthdays, graduations, and other summer celebrations:

To assemble the card, I adhered a 2 1/4" x 5" strip of Berry Burst Cardstock to a 4" x 5 1/4" panel of Azure Afternoon Cardstock. then I added a 2" x 4 3/4" strip of Bright & Beautiful DSP. 

This terrific new DSP provides a great sampling of many new Core Colours: Lemon Lolly, Lemon Lime Twist, Azure Afternoon, Blueberry Bushel, Berry Burst, Bubble Bath, Fresh Freesia, Lost Lagoon, Pretty Peacock, and Misty Moonlight.

To create the balloon strings, I added Simply Elegant Twine (Gold) to the backs of the balloons, securing under a Stampin' Dimensional™. I layered the balloons on with Stampin' Dimensionals™ as well. Simply Elegant Trim is very versatile, as it comes with a skein each of Gold and Silver:

I used the coloured Azure Afternoon ribbon to make a knot around the balloon strings and trimmed it. Then I added the card panel to a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Basic White Thick Cardstock card base with Stampin' Dimensionals™. I embellished with Classic Matte Dots.

Thanks for stopping by, friends. I hope you enjoyed exploring the brand new Bright & Beautiful Suite with me, found on pages 14-15 of the new Annual Catalogue.
