Create a card using one of Gina's fabulous videos listed HERE. 
One of my most favorite people, Judy Woodland, 
is hosting Gina's Challenge this month.
Judy is wildly talented, and you can see her beautiful creations HERE.  

***Fun Fact***

Gina and Stamp TV brought Judy and I
 together so many years ago!

For this card I was inspired by Gina's 5 minute card making video,

I was only able to scrounge up 3 rubber bands quickly lol
For the technique I used inks in; 
Calypso Coral, Tempting Turquoise and Wild Wasabi.
Amalgam Black ink for sentiment.
Clear Embossing Powder.
Gina's Birthday Hoot and Wishes stamp sets.
Gina's card stock in; Coral Reef, White and Black Onyx.

Balloons were stamped, colored and fussy cut out which I then popped up on foam dots.  
I also added Glossy Accents to each for a pretty shine.
Spellbinders Classic and Scallop Ovals dies.
Copic Markers.
Sakura Glaze and Glitter Pens.


 A wee bit of dimension.

Thanks for strolling by.

  4. Love your rubber-band plaid!! I've watched Gina do that technique and have yet to try. You've inspired me. A very fun, colorful card. Thank you so much for joining the stamped image challenge at Allsorts.

  5. What a hoot. This is such a fun card. Love that rubber band background. I'm going to check out Gina's video.

  6. Boy I haven't seen that image in a long time. Always a favorite of mine. That background is just wonderful with that cute owl, and I love your colors. What a fun technique and you have done it perfectly!! Fussy cutting the balloons and popping them up is such a genius idea, as is the Glossy Accents. I love everything about this card!!
