I even got smart this time around, and took a photo to show how tall the balloon ACTUALLY is!
Once I had the largest piece created, it was a matter of creating additional pieces that suited the display. Some were planned, while others happened due to a random strike of inspiration while walking through a store. For instance, when I saw the bottle below, I knew it needed a balloon floating in it.
These rosettes were something I had planned, however, they seemed to grow a bit between my mind and the actual item...
I had known I wanted to try this lip balm card, from the first moment I had my hands on the stamp set. The largest balloon stamp was a great fit.
As my display last year was mostly edible , I knew I needed to add some yummy elements as well. However, don't try to eat the cupcake. It's foam and would be rather chewy.
The gumballs are fine though!
I also knew I wanted a banner in front of my table. I chose to use the Lots of Labels Framelits, as I thought the rounded edge suited the rounded balloons, and offered a bit more fun to the banner shape.
And of course you have to have a few cards in the display!
The final piece in the display was the chalkboard that I put together the night before we set up. I have used this technique before, but I don't think I have shared it. I colored the stamps (this works best with rubber) with a chalk marker, and then quickly stamped the image onto my chalkboard.
Thanks for stopping by!
