winnie & walter Share the Love Week Featuring: Simon Says Stamp Day 2

Welcome back on day 2 of the winnie & walter share the love week featuring: Simon Says Stamp! The second challenge has been a real challenge to me! It is a 10 Minute Dash Challenge. Phew. I can work quite fast, but 10 minutes is not much. After one failure, I was able to whip up this card:

I combined the following products:

To safe time, I like to prepare card bases. I trim and score card bases from white and cream card stock to have them ready when I need them. So I grabbed one of those, some scraps of colored card stock and started creating. First, I die-cut the balloons. Then I trimmed off one side of one balloon and one top of a balloon to line them up to create the impression of a second panel. To get them onto my card straightly, I used a strip of card stock as a guideline. For more dimension, I used foam tape on the yellow one. Now I stamped my sentiment from The Big, The Bold, and the Happy. Using a fine liner, I drew the strings of the balloons. Finally, I added some enamel dots (it would have saved me some time if I had the matching ones ready on my desk, but frantically digging through a drawer took some…). Here comes proof that I managed the time limit:

I hope you'll try this challenge! So fun! Now it's time to hop to the winnie & walter blog for your chance to win a wonderful prize! Thanks for stopping by today, I hope to see you back on Thursday for the 4th challenge.
