Happy Little Stampers August 2021 CAS Challenge

Good evening

Going into a brand new month means a flurry of new challenges at Happy Little Stampers.  Here's the cue card for the August CAS challenge, which is just starting now...

I went super simple on my DT card for this one but I love this balloon base die and I've not used it for a while, here it is...

I used the balloon base die to cut a piece of aqua cardstock.  Before adhering to the upper part of my card base I blended from the edges with Speckled Egg Distress Ink, just to give the impression of some shadow.  I wanted some contrast so I die cut the tie and string from some bright pink cardstock and adhered these.  And to finish I stamped the sentiment, slightly curved to follow the shape of the balloon.

Materials used:
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Blueprints 26
  • Cardstock from stash
  • Ink: Distress Ink - Speckled Egg; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Stamp: Clearly Besotted - Simple Script

As with all the HLS challenges, the link will remain open until the end of August.  Thanks for visiting :)


  1. Your balloon is perfectly shaded! Perfect CAS card, love it.

  2. I love your balloon. I have on my desk two balloons that I just sewed floss to be the string. HAGD.
