Surprise Party Paper Cards with Angelica and Juliana

Hi everyone! Angelica here, and I have a fun project to share today. I LOVE the Surprise Party paper pack. Every paper is so vibrant! They're double sided, filled with bright celebration patterns on one side, and tone-on-tone patterns on the back. I used the tone-on-tone sides for my card today.

I stamped five 2-layered star balloons from the Bold Balloons Stamp set.  I used the coordinating die to cut them out, then added shimmer and Crystal Glaze for shine.

On the top side of a horizontal 8.5 X 4.25 card base, I stamped confetti from the same stamp set. Next I positioned the balloons where I wanted them on the card base, and marked their spots. I used a multiliner pen and a T-ruler to draw balloon strings from the marked spots to the middle of the card base.

I cut a thin strip of black card stock, and glued it where the balloon strings stopped. I used the Happy die to die cut black card stock 4 times, then stacked and glued them for height. I cut 3/8 inch strips of pattern paper, then glued the strips under the black line, using a grid to keep my strips straight.

Once the balloons were dry, I adhered them with foam adhesive. I used glue to attach the die cut word, then added shimmer and Crystal glaze to match the balloons. I picked words from Happy Thoughts stamp set to stamp and white heat-emboss onto black card stock. I trimmed the words down to strips, and attached them to the card with thin foam squares.

I hope I have helped you with ideas on how to incorporate pattern papers to your cards. That's all for today. Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Friends! It's Juliana here and I'm very happy to back with you this week after taking a break last week for our move into our new home! Today I'm sharing a birthday themed gift box featuring the Wrap Around Box Dies, Silly Sloths Stamps and the Surprise Party Paper Pad!

To create the box, I used the Wrap Around Box Dies and I followed the wonderful instructions found in this blog post. I began with a solid piece of teal cardstock. I then used some of the fun patterns from the Surprise Party Paper Pad to decorate each side of the box. For the oval frames, I used the plain stitched oval in the Fancy Frames Oval Dies.

Once the box was complete, I started stamping the adorable sloths and leaves from the Silly Sloths Stamps. I colored them in using Copic Markers and then die cut them using the Silly Sloths Dies. After all of the coloring and die cutting was complete, I began adding a sloth and some leaves to each section to create a little scene.

Because I wanted this to be a birthday gift box, I knew those cute little sloths needed some party hats! The adorable Party Pups Stamps had just what I needed and they fit the sloths perfectly! Another option for party hats can also be found on the Purrfect Birthday Stamps.

To finish off the gift box, I created 2 small tags using the tag dies that are part of the Wrap Around Box Dies. I stamped Happy Birthday on one of them using “happy” from the Fabulous Flamingos Stamps and “birthday” from the Silly Sloths Stamps.

Originally, I only had the one tag with the sentiment, but then I saw those cute sloth faces and knew it would fit perfectly on one of those tags.

To adhere the tags, I added a length of yellow craft floss to each tag. I dropped the ends of the floss into the box opening and once I had the tags hanging out as far as I wanted them, I adhered them in place with a bit of adhesive and then trimmed off the excess floss.
