Lift Me Up Hot Air Balloons

Lift Me Up! Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Have you ever gone Hot Air Balloon chasing?  It's quite the adventure.  Who knows where the balloon might land.  The last time we went on a Hot Air Balloon chase was a lazy evening just before dark.   A beautiful Hot Air Balloon was riding low over our farm house.  Curiosity got the best of us.  We hopped in the car for a balloon chase.  Believe it or not the Balloon landed in a cow pasture a few roads over.  The cows just stood there chewing their cud staring at the strange new arrival.

Today's card brought to mind that dusky evening balloon chase.  The Lift Me Up Bundle captures the beauty and the romance of ballooning and was a perfect choice for making today's card.  It's a must have stamp and die bundle for all Hot Air Balloon lovers.

Lift Me Up Hot Air Balloon Stamps

To get the look of a dusky sky, I heat embossed white Hot Air Balloons, then sponged Soft Sky and Wisteria Wonder ink across them.  This Technique is called Emboss Resist, because the embossed areas resist the ink.  Next, I stamped Wisteria Wonder Clouds and cut them out with the Up & Away Thinlits Dies and my Big Shot and scattered them across my sky.

The Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi is this week's Splitcoast Stampers color challenge.  I'm happy to announce that I've been asked to be a Guest Designer for the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge for the month of February.  Be sure to stop back, every Tuesday for a new color combo.

Make a Card in 10 Minutes

Make a Card in 10 Minutes

Here's a few simple tips and tricks to making this gorgeous card in 10 minutes or less.

Note Cards

Psst--My number one secret to making quick and is cards is Note Cards & Envelopes.  They're cut, scored and ready to stamp and send a card. This thick white base is a fabulous card starter.  And there are 20 of these babies in each package---with envelopes!

Beautiful You

Stamp one of the gorgeous gals from the Beautiful You Stamp Set and stamp one of the many sentiments below her.  There are so many fabulous choices in this 13 piece stamp set.

Floral Boutique Designer Paper

The next step is a simple technique called Paper Piecing.  Simply stamp your girl again on designer paper and cut out her dress and hat.  Glue over stamped image.  Presto!  It's as simple as that.  I used the classic Navy and White Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper.

You could stop right there and have a beautiful one layer card.

Kick It Up a Notch Card Tips

If you would like to kick your card up a notch, trim off 1/2" from the front right side of your Note Card.  Then, cut a Copper Foil heart border with the Love Note dies and the Big Shot.  Slip your border in place and ooh, la la!  The Navy and the copper look absolutely fabulous together.   To compliment, the Brighter Days to come sentiment, I tucked a piece of Daffodil Delight Card Stock on the inside.

Love Notes Sealed With Love

Card Making Tips & Tricks

I stamped my background with a combination of Timeless Textures and Sealed with Love Stamps with Mint Macaron and Pink Pirouette inks.

Next, I layered on all manner of cuteness stamped and cut with the Sealed with Love Bundle with soft pastels.  

I stamped "Hello Love" with Basic Gray ink for a softer than black pop. 

Hint:  White space highlights the card's focal point.

Sealed with Love Stampin' Up!

 The Sealed with Love Bundle is overflowing with an eclectic mix of tiny sweetness and it's all about love.  And I can think of reason to express love 365 days of the year.
