Winnie & Walter June 2017 Release Premiere Day #2

Hi and welcome to Day 2 of Winnie & Walter's June release! Today we are showcasing From the Bottom of My Heart (+ coordinating dies), the free with qualifying $25 purchase stamp set: Happy Birthday to You, Sentimental: Birthday, and Big Balloon Cutaways. 

For today's card I decided to create a large shaker using the super fun balloon cutaways. I left the largest two dies attached so I can die cut multiple balloon frames that have exactly the same size. I adhered two fun foam frames together to create the wall of the shaker, and used a glitter frame and acetate for the front window.

I really wanted to create a festive birthday card with lots of vibrant colors, so naturally I went with rainbow colors. After some trial and errors, I decided to stamp the cake image (from the Happy Birthday to You set) with Neon Red, Orange Soda, and Butter Bar Hero Arts shadow ink. I wanted to create an ombre effect so once I've inked up the stamp (top left photo), I used my finger and tapped on the inked edge (top right photo) to remove the harsh lines. (Bottom left photo)

For the middle shade, or Orange Soda in this case, I tapped on both the top edge and the bottom edge. 

Sometimes you leave fingerprints on the stamp while you're tapping, but that's okay because you won't see them after layering two or three more coats of ink. (Thanks to the MISTI. Gotta love this tool!)

I completed the rainbow look by watercoloring the background with Mowed Lawn, Lucky Clover, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Dusty Concord and Wilted Violet distress inks. Then I added a handful of colorful sequins to the shaker window. 

I did add some more texture to the card front by stenciling embossing paste with Scenery: Spotty Creative Screenings (to be featured on Thursday, June 29), although you can barely see it from the photos. Finally, I embellished the balloon with a silver bow and gemstone and that completes the card! I hope this colorful card has brightened up your day a little, thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you again tomorrow!
