My new stamp set from Christmas has been sitting in my craft area for 3 months and I haven't even touched it....can you believe it??? I can't either!!! Of all the cards I have done since Christmas I haven't once used this new stamp set. It is called Up, Up and Away by Stampin UP!. It is a really cute set that includes several hot air balloons (on this card and envelope you see 4 out of 5), clouds (as seen above), birds and several little sayings. You could do a lot with this stamp set and I am sure that you will see more of it in the future.
To begin with, I tore a green patterned paper into strips and glued them down to appear as a grassy hill. I stamped my balloons onto white paper and then proceeded to cut them out...very slowly...that is not my best skill! I then placed them where I wanted them to go and stamped the balloon rope of each onto the card base. I then used pop dots and placed the balloons on the card. I stamped the sentiment onto a scallopped square and placed it as well. The clouds where in this set as well and I stamped them with white ink onto the card front.
Hope you enjoy the card! Have a great day and remember it is always homemade!
