Let’s Fly Away

I’ve always wanted to get in a Hot Air Balloon and just fly away but the fear of heights has always stopped me from doing it. This stamp set ( called Lift Me Up)  just let’s me dream away about the joy of seeing everything from above. Do you have a fear of heights or fear of getting in a hot air balloon?

For this card, I started off with a standard card base 4.25 X 11 inches scored at 5.5″. I then cut a piece of white card stock 4 X 5.25 and cut out my two cloud with my dies. I then cut out an additional cloud and embossed them using my Stampin Up! Elegants Dots embossing folder. I then took some more white card stock and stamped my three hot air balloons using Flirty Flamingo, Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim. Once stamped I cut them out using the two different sizes Hot air balloon dies. I then stamped my cloud images ( in Marina Mist) on my white card stock and my sentiment in Flirty Flamingo. Once I was done stamping I then started layering my clouds and hot air balloons on my base using stampin dimensionals to pop them up of the card front. After finishing up with the top of my card, I adhered the card front to my blue base. I adhered a white piece of card stock to the inside of my card with a sentiment and stamped a hot air balloon inside.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my creation. I would love to hear from you so please do leave me a comment.

Hey Chick!

Happy New Year! A New Year and a Couple of Chicks to start it off! For my Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies card. I decided to use a new stamp set called Hey, Chick! I just love these little chicks, they are so fun and lively. For my card, I decided to start off by cutting out two stitched ovals. I then stamped my images and colored them with my comics. ( I tried to give them a little attitude with their colors, as all chicks are different) I then cut out the ovals on my Bermuda Bay card stock and decided to do an inlay design. I don’t do many of these but I just thought it would be cute. I used stampin dimensionals behind the bermuda bay and ovals to make them really stand out. I then added the layers to my white card base. I decided to make a little banner for my sentiment and added a few pearls to give it a little more character. I hope you enjoy the chicks and wish you all a Very Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year!

Happy Little Stampers Blog Hop

Today I’m joining in Happy Little Stampers Blog Hop showcasing one of their newest stamp sets Christmas Joy.  For this card, I decided to make a simple design that I could duplicate easily. I’ve been busy making cards for the Caring Heart Drive and now I’m going to make some cards for the local nursing home that I take lip balms, lotion, socks and stuffed animals to each year.

For this card, I started off with the standard A2 base in SU Mossy Meadow and then added a 4″ X 5 1/4″ Real red base that I embossed. I then used my new stitched die from Stampin up to cut my circle. I then stamped my poinsetta with SU Black Archival ink. Once my ink had drived I used my Copic Lipstick Red to color in the poinsetta and my Spectrum Noir and Copic to color in the leaves. I added a little Metallic Green thread behind my image and used my clear Wink of Stella to give the poinsetta a little sparkle.

Jar of Thanks

It’s that time again, another Wonderful Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies. For this month, I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love Stamp set and dies. I started off by choosing my color scheme. I went with Mint Macaroon and Watermelon Wonder. I started off by using a stencil for background. I sponged it with both of the colors (Mint Macaroon/ Watermelon Wonder) and then started adding my layers. I stamped the jar and (3) flowers then added my sentiment (Thanks). After stamping, I then used my jar and flowers dies to cut them out. Once finished with this portion,  I carefully figured out where my jar would be and started stamping the branches.  I added dimensionals to the back of the jar to make it pop up and then added the pearls to the flower centers. I also, cut a piece of Watermelon Wonder ribbon for the bow on top of the jar.

Just Dropping In

I’m getting ready for a little fall weather. For me fall, is just a little cooler as it doesn’t really get to cold where I live. Would just love to be in the 70’s honestly. For this card, I wanted to use the sketch from Sunday Stamps SSC136 and I  really wanted to use some pretty fall colors which I found with a package of leaves that I had in my stash.

Grateful, Thankful and Blessed

This card is just a great card to tell someone how Grateful, Thankful and Blessed that you are to have them in your life. When life’s moments come your way, most of us realized that we feel this way. My mom had a TIA, two weeks ago and I’ll tell you everything flashed before me. My mom is pretty young (at least I think so) and I didn’t expect anything like this to happen. My mom is doing well, in fact in just hours after she was doing fine. It was just quick and short but really made me think about how grateful, thankful and blessed I am to have her in my life.
