Balloon Adventures~

I wanted to take some time today before card class and post another swap of mine from the Stampin' Up! Achievers Swap I recently participated in. I always have so much fun doing this swap, because there is so many talented ladies in this swap that I am never disappointed in the ones I get back.
This swap was for the Ocassions Mini and the Salebration catalogs.
I choose to use the Balloon Adventures stamp set and the Up and Away DSP that is FREE with a $50 purchase! I love how the two books coordinate with product to kind of go hand in hand.
This one is done in Peekaboo Peach as the base of my card.  I layered up a Whisper White with a banner of Up and Away DSP( I used the Triple Banner Punch for flagging the end). I wrapped a piece of Smokey Slate Thick Baker's Twine around it.
I stamped the Crushed Curry balloon onto Whisper White and cut it out using the Stitched Framelits(WHICH ARE NOW BACK IN STOCK!) and then stamped the polka dot balloon in Watermelon Wonder and punched it out using the Balloon Punch and popped it up with Dimensionals.  I stamped out the balloon strings with the Basic Black Archival Ink Pad.
I finished it off by stamping the sentiment in Peekaboo Peach in the bottom right corner.
I think that these two catalogs are going to be the BEST that we have had in a long time!
I'm off to my craft room for card class! Have a GREAT Wednesday!
