cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


Another card to share with the Lift Me Up Bundle. This time I wanted to add some colour behind the balloon.  This is so easy to do with the shaped framelits in the Up and Away Thinlits set. This card was inspired by a card shared by a Demonstrator friend.  



Adhere a piece of the ‘Falling in Love’ DSP to a Sweet Sugarplum card base.

Cut the large Hot Air Balloon from Very Vanilla Cardstock.  Using the shaped framelits in the Up and Away Framelits cut pieces in various colours of card.  I used Blushing Bride, Soft Sky and stick your card pieces down. Adhere the Balloon to your card.  Tie off some Sweet Sugarplum (from the Succulent Ribbon Combo) and some Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and adhere on to the Balloon with a ‘Falling in Love’ Embellishment.

Stamp the sentiment on to Very Vanilla Card and cut that with one of the shapes. Sponge the edge with Sweet Sugarplum ink. Cut an oval from the Layering Oval Framelits from Sweet Sugarplum and layer them together.  Raise them up with Dimensionals.

A really very easy card once you put your Hot Air Balloon together.  Try it with different colour combinations perhaps?

Have a great day.

Here is another card for you that we made at Onstage last year.  This one uses the very delicate ‘So Detailed’ Thinlits.  Quite pretty and very elegant to add to your cards.


A few card details:

Card base is Soft Sky and the very gorgeous Designer Series Paper is the ‘Falling in Love’ DSP.  All the papers in this pack are so lovely.  This one gives a Bokeh effect without all the sponging to create your own!

When we made this card the strip created with the So Detailed Thinlits was a Belly Band around the card.  I felt that the card was a bit bare when you take it off, so I just cut it to the width of the card and made it in to a strip so the card opens as normal.

The sentiment is from ‘So In Love’ set stamped in Sahara Sand I think.  It is finished off with the gorgeous, soft Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and the ‘Falling In Love’ Embellishments with some Copper Thread.

This would make a very elegant Wedding card.  What do you think?

Check out the Thinlits and the stamp set.

I hope the weather is good for you where you are? It is sweltering hot here.  Well really melting hot.  (I can say that).  It was a bit hard in my craft room today but I managed to get a few projects done to prepare for my Catalogue Review this weekend.  I can share these with you soon. 🙂
