Default CAS434 - Balloons

Title: CAS434 - Balloons

Hostess: Kia (kiagc)
Keyword: CAS434
Week of: June 19th



Kia here with you for a new Clean and Simple Challenge. As it was my birthday yesterday, I have balloons on my mind. But, it is also Canada's 150th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation, and then there will be the US 4th of July to celebrate. Lots of balloons!! Now, in case you have not figured it out yet, I would like to see balloons (any balloon) with a bit of sparkle please.

1. There is no deadline to play along with the CAS challenges.
2. Take all the time you need to finish and upload your card.
3. Upload your card to your gallery and link back to this thread so we all can see your project.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword CAS434 when uploading your image, a copy/paste of the keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
5. Please feel free to combine the CAS challenges with any other challenge.

The challenges are to provide inspiration and to get us stamping, so have fun and follow your heART. We can't wait to see what you create!



The fave from last week is done by sistersandie and can be found here. Congrats Sandie, please grab this blinkie to share on your blog if you like.

And, not to disappoint, a bit of information on rubber balloons.


The first rubber balloons were made by a scientist named Michael Faraday in 1824. He used them in his experiments with hydrogen at the Royal Institution in London, England. Faraday made his balloons by laying two pieces of rubber on top of each other and pressing the edges together. The tacky rubber stuck automatically. To prevent the pieces of rubber from joining all the way through, he rubbed the inside of the balloon with flour first.
Modern balloons are made from a liquid rubber called latex. Latex comes from the sap of the rubber tree, Hevea brasiliensis, which grows in many tropical countries. The balloon manufacturing process is mostly automated. Liquid latex is sent through treatment processes, colours are added, the latex is shaped, and the outer surface of the balloons may be stamped with designs.
Before 1824, early balloons were made from dried animal bladders.
Soon after Michael Faraday's invention of the balloon, a rubber manufacturer named Thomas Hancock came up with a way to sell them. In 1825, if a person wanted one of their own, they had to make the actual balloon themselves. Hancock's balloons were sold in the form of a do-it-yourself kit, consisting of a bottle of rubber solution and a condensing syringe.
In 1907, rubber balloons started to be manufactured in the United States.
Balloons are now manufactured by the millions daily in a number of countries. They are available in all kinds of shapes, sizes, and colours and have become a fixture at birthday parties and celebrations.


THE MORE YOU KNOW.

Heart CAS434 Cutie Pie

Kia- great challenge, thank you! I started this little girl card yesterday, but couldn't figure out what element it needed to make it "pop". Your balloons saved the day!! I used My Favorite Things PI Sassitude for my little miss, and Lawn Fawn's Cutie Pie for my luscious pumpkin dessert. Here's Cutie Pie

I have to say, I am quite balloon deprived when it comes to my stamp and die stash, but I pulled out a very old stamp that has never seen ink before - great challenge for me today : )
Happy Belated Birthday, Kia!

Here is another card for the balloon challenge. I didn't have any already made so had to come up with some new ones and it was fun. I like them both.
