So, here I am today! I have another one of the cards I was asked to make. I did this one in one of the new In Colors 2017-19 Powder Pink and then with Soft Suede and Whisper White. I stamped out the balloons in the Powder Pink Ink onto Whisper White card stock and then again on a scrap piece and cut it out using the matching framelit and then cutting out two clouds also using the dies that coordinate with this stamp set. I then stamped a retired stamp set, in which is completely is not coming to mind right now and I'm not in range of looking.
I tied a piece of Smokey Slate Thick Baker's twine around it all. Well there is two down and one to go. I will be back soon to post the last one.
Hello everyone! I have some cards the next couple of days that I have made for retirements and birthdays. I will apologize in advance that this one and one other uses one retired stamp set (the "celebrate" sentiment) because I needed something to make the card pop and this was the perfect size. So, I made this pretty simply. I used two layers of Whisper White cardstock. On the front layer, I stamped out the clouds from the stamp set Up and Away in Soft Sky and then one more on a scrap and cut it out using the Up and Away Framelits.
I cut out the square using the Stitched Shapes dies and cut it out of Crumb Cake card stock. I stamped the hot air balloon in Real Red on Real Red card stock and cut it out with the matching die.I tied some Night of Navy Baker's Twine behind it before adhering it to the card. I popped both the hot hair ballon and the cloud up using Dimensionals. I finished off that part by using a Soft Subtle Enamel shape(heart) on the front of the balloon.
And here's the retired "celebrate". I stamped it in Real Red and then stamped the other sentiment from the stamp set Happy Celebrations in Basic Black ink onto Crumb Cake card stock and just fussy cut it out.
I'm leaving for Hawaii in 7 days! I will do my best at getting the rest of my cards blogged for you before I go.
Have a great Thursday!
