Up, Up and Away

Hi Friends! 

I hope you are having a great week so far!  This evening I had a chance to create a quick Clean and Simple (CAS) card for Joanne's PP283 Up, Up and Away Challenge at The Paper Players as well as the Splitcoaststampers’ Alphabet Challenge (B is for Balloons).

If you have not had a chance to visit the above sites, I hope you will find time to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Fussy cut the balloon images from the Graphic 45® World’s Fair 8x8 Designer Paper (Balloon Bouquet).

Use the Big Shot™ to die cut a piece of Very Vanilla with the My Favorite Things® (MFT) Stitched Rectangle STAX Die and emboss a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.

Trim the embossed panel and mount onto the Tangelo Twist card base.

Adhere the smaller balloons directly to the stitched rectangular die cut (I used Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive) and add the larger balloon using dimensional foam.

Prepare a piece of Tangelo Twist cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the sentiment from Six-Sided Sampler with Versamark™ Ink, stamp onto the prepared cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Winter White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Trim the “Hello” from the sentiment and create the banner points with the Hexagon Punch.

Mount the rectangle die onto the card front using dimensional foam and add the sentiment to the larger balloon image to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:; Six-Sided Sampler  (Stampin’ Up!)

Ink: Versamark™

Paper: Very Vanilla, Tangelo Twist, Graphic 45® World’s Fair Designer Paper

Accessories: Big Shot™, Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (retired), MFT Stitched Rectangle STAX Dies, Embossing Buddy™, Stampin’ Emboss® Winter White Embossing Powder (retired), Heat Tool, Hexagon Punch

Thanks again for stopping by!!  Have a fabulous week, my friends!
