Balloon Celebration Glimmery Celebration Card Stampin Up! UK

Today I am sharing a card that uses once of Stampin Up!'s Bundles, giving you a 15% saving on the purchase price, should you order the Balloon Celebration stamp set and the Balloon Punch Separately. This bundle would cost £45 meaning you would also qualify for a free Sal A Bration product. In the list of products used today a little further down today's post, I have included the Flowering Fields Stamp Set as your Freeby, but should you place an order, you would, of course, be free to chose a Free SAB product with every £45 you spend (excluding postage costs)

Me being me, I have used more than just the Bundle mentioned. I decided that rather than stamping the balloons, I decided it would be fun to punch out the balloons using a combination of Cardstock and Glimmer Paper. So I went with  Blushing Bride Cardstock and Glimmer Paper, and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
The background is stamped using stamps from the Balloon Celebration stamp set and Smokey Slate Classic Ink Pad. The balloon strings and the sentiment are stamped using Early Espresso Classic Ink Pad, with a little Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper (DSP).
