"Jazz It Up!" with Blog with Friends

Welcome to "Blog with Friends" where I join five other bloggers as we focus our content on the theme of "Mardi Gras". You'll find images, and their links, at the bottom of this post so be sure to go check out what they have to share with you! 

Unsure how I wanted to tie in Mardi Gras with my love of papercrafting, I decided to incorporate the color scheme is this celebratory card. By using the balloon stamp image and coordinating Thin Cut from the Celebrate Today Cardmaking Workshop Kit I kept it pretty simple but sparkly. 

The gold accents were incorporated through the use of a few products. Balloons were cut out of Gold Glitter Paper, accents on the balloons were created through the use of Golden Rod Stickles Glitter Gel, and I had to include a bow on the strings. They were tired using Gold & White Ribbon. And last, but not least, the beautiful "celebrate" sentiment is from the "Sentiments by Melissa Esplin" stamp set. (If you aren't aware, we are celebrate Stamptacular this month where you can get stamp sets for up to 50% off. HUGE SAVINGS! Click on this link to find out more.)

While you're here, be sure to make your way around to my friends' blogs. They will appreciate it and you'll find some great content. 

Make it a great week!


  1. I love this project, it has the colors of Mardi Gras, but can be used for any occasion.

  2. That card is really nice. I'm always envious of those who are really crafty. I never seem to be able to keep the patience for it, and I'm definitely not too artistic in regard to it. I stick with graphical design on the computer... at least there I feel I can keep up a little! Nice work!


Thanks for showing me some blog love with your comments!
