Pootles Design Team Week 5 - Balloon Builder Flower Card

Wow - The last few weeks have really flown by haven't they. I can't believe this is my last week as part of the Pootler's design team. 

Each Thursday in June we have been sharing projects using the Balloon Builder stamp set.

All of my previous projects have focused on the 'balloon' aspect of this punch so I though for the last project I would try to think outside the box and focus on the 'builder' aspect.

I am pretty pleased I did as I really like the outcome. 

I've focused on three purples here, Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant. 

The stalk and leaves are Old Olive with a pop of Daffodil Delight for the centre of the flower- picked out again in the mat on the card base.

There is a lot of layering and dimension involved in this card. The larger two layers of petals are punched out using the matching balloon punch and layered up. The centre of the flower is stamped and then punched out with the 1/2 inch circle punch.

I really hope you like this project and have enjoyed the others I have shared over the last few weeks.

  1. Your card is beautiful! Very creative to use the balloons for a flower.

    1. Thank you - was time to think outside of the box x x

  2. Beautiful. This is what I have a problem with...."thinking outside the box" I look at a stamp set and I just see the stamp set. I don't think I have a very creative mind lol. Thank you :o)

    1. Thanks Audrey - I must admit I struggled a bit with this set but after playing around for a while I was glad inspiration struck x c

  3. This is a really great idea! Love it!

  4. The level of service at I got with these guys was above and beyond. Even when I left word in an email that I wanted to downsize my order there was no fuss no muss. I was so impressed. I would not hesitate to use this NYC Flower Delivery again.
