I have been eyeing the Up, Up and Away stamp set for awhile and when Michelle Zindorf made a card with the set that I fell in love with I had to buy it. Now I have not been brave enough to try to recreate her card as I am not great at brayering but I did use her ideas and took them in my own direction. Check out Michelle's Up, Up, and Away card Here.
I used Summer Smooches DSP as my Colour guide and stamped the Balloons in coordinating colours on scrap white. Using my Whisper White Ink and Bashful Blue Card Stock I created a sky by sponging some white onto the blue paper. I added a very faint "Make a Wish" sentiment in the sky using White and Bashful Blue Inks. I then cut out the balloons and using my Stamp-a-ma jig I stamped the buckets on the CS and popped the balloons. I stamped some birds and then set out to cut flags using the Summer Smooches DSP. A little Daffodil Delight paper and an Indigo Ink base and the card was done, almost.
I then added a layer of Whisper White Card Stock to the inside of the card and decorated it.
I am loving this stamp set! Below are just some of the items used while making this card. To place an order just check out my Stampin Up website!
