Hello friends! Hope you’re having a great week so far. The month of October is flying right through and I know once Halloween gets here, it will be the end of the year before we know it!
Today starts a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday this week! We are looking for “Spots and Dots” on your creations this time! We look forward to seeing your take on this one!
For my card, I decided to keep it rather simple:
This card is using items from the Simon Says Stamp Sweet Birthday Limited Edition card kit which has since been sold out, but I know that you can still purchase a few of the items that were included in the kit.
I started out by taking the SSS Celebrate stencil from the kit and spread on some Deco Foil Transfer Gel over a white piece of cardstock from the kit and let it completely dry before moving on. After it was dry, I took the Rainbow Shattered Glass transfer foil sheet and put it through my laminator. It looks so pretty and shinny with a wow factor to it! I cut this piece down and layered it over a black scallop square die cut panel. I then layered these pieces over the green colored Tim Holtz Metallic paper from the kit.
For the square card, I used a black top folding 4.25″ black card base and then layered another piece of that green metallic paper over it. I took a ‘dotted’ piece of paper from the Honey Bee Over the Rainbow papers (included in the kit) and layered it over top of the metallic green. Then I added my foiled balloons panel over this.
Lastly, I took the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Sweet Birthday stamp set and white heat embossed it over a piece of black cardstock that I trimmed down to a banner and popped up over the card with some foam tape.
I really didn’t want to add too much more to it as it was for a male and I think with all of that foil and shine, it really didn’t need much else! I think it’s fun, simple and really cheery looking especially with that foiling done.
I know that I’m getting this fun kit out again very soon as I am in need of another birthday card to send to someone that needs a good birthday cheer!

Your spots/dots card is beautiful – would you believe as long as I have been a stamper I have yet to try foiling. It is on my bucket list. Loved your get away photos. This is the weather to start out with a heavier coat and start shedding it about 11. I love this fallish weather we are having here in southern MO.

Fabulous card Vicki and love the metallic balloons.Great travel pics and such beautiful scenery-glad you had a good time
I adore the foiled balloons, Vicki! I got so distracted by those gorgeous photos that I almost forgot about the card. 😀 What wonderful weekend trips you’ve had over the last month. Wish I was traveling around in your part of the country.
Love your project! Thanks for joining us at the PIP Challenge th
WOW, loving your balloons and the card you created. I have some older (ok really old) papers like that and have never used them! Fun pictures of your excursion, I had to laugh that you went from heavy oats to just light jackets. Beautiful scenery and looks like it was a nice getaway for you both.
You know I appreciate your artistry in your cards but it was good to see photos of your trip too. Here’s to many more happy excursions!
