poppystamps Terrific Tricycle Birthday…

Pam Sparks Birthday Balloons & Trike

Hi everyone! Staying in out of the heat to stamp these days! So thankful for air conditioning!

When I saw these new HAPPY Balloon dies, I knew I wanted to hang the new Terrific Tricycle die from them.

So ‘happy’ with how this turned out.  It’s always a relief when something is blog worthy! lol

I die cut the balloons and trike from watercolor paper and colored with the Zig Clean Color Brush markers and the Zig Water paint brush.

I die cut the trike from black foam so the handlebars would be sturdier for tying on the buttonhole thread. Glued it to the painted trike.

I ink blended a little Tumbled Glass Distress ink on the background of an A2 size white card-base.

I figured out where the balloons would go and then stamped the sentiment from the new Ornamental Butterflies stamp set. I’m really liking the sentiments in this set and I have another card to show soon using the butterflies…pretty.

I mounted the balloons with foam mounting squares… tied on the buttonhole thread…glued the trike on, except for the handlebar area…tied the thread to the handlebars and then glued it down.  I did put a teeny bit of glue on top of the knots on the handlebars too.

Hope the card made you smile and remember your trike days! hehe
