It's Amazing - Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrases

   I'm finding the 2022-2024 In Colors perfect for summer boy birthdays!  After seeing the Paper Players challenge to use Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide and Basic White for a card I knew they would be a great combo for a teen boy birthday.

  I did add a bit of black as a neutral to make the colors pop even more than they do on their own and it was also an opportunity to throw in a little bit of Black Glimmer paper for some sparkle.  I used it on the '14' and the '!'

  The Amazing Phrases Sale-a-Bration reward stamp set has been seeing a lot of ink.  I think the casual fonts and fun mix & match possibilities work nicely for cards for teens and men.

  I created the background panel by stamping the balloon from Penguin Place (a returning favorite from last Christmas season! You can find it in the July-Dec. mini catalog) in Tahitian Tide ink onto Tahitian Tide cardstock.  

  Next I stamped all my sentiments and fussy cut them and popped them up with dimensionals around the dir cut 14. I stamped a few more balloons and fussy cut them to add to the side of the layout.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
