Up, Up and away!!

I’m so excited to share that I have been chosen to be a part of The AddINKtive Designs team!!   My clever friend, Bronwyn Eastley, creates the most amazing card tutorials (check out her tutorial shop here).  Each month, I’ll be showcasing my projects using her tutorials.

For my first card, I decided to use the One Wild Ride, Z-Fold, Slider card tutorial (Try saying that fast!!).  You can check it out Bronwyn’s card, here.

I don’t have the One Wild Ride stamp set so I had a look through my stamps to see what might work.  I found the Lift Me Up stamp set and the matching Up and Away thinlits and thought that the large thinlit balloon would work perfectly on the slider.

I was so brave and decided to cut that stunning piece of dsp from the Birthday Memories DSP, you know, the one with the animals walking over the hill.  I thought it would look like the hot air balloons were floating in amongst the drifting balloons in the sky!

Using old olive cardstock, I created the slider piece and added in some hills.  I sponged it to get some texture but it still need a little bit of something else.  Just as I went to grab my camera to take the photos, I noticed the Sheltering Tree stamp set and it has a grass stamp!!  Just what it needed.

To cut out the large balloon thinlit, I stuck together the piece of dsp and a piece of thick whisper white cardstock using the returned Multipurpose adhesive sheets.  I wanted to give the balloon a bit of stability so that it would fall over.  I then put a little piece of white cardstock behind the basket so that you can’t see the dimensional behind it.

I then coloured the balloon stamps with markers and cut them out using the thinlits.  I just love not having to fussy cut!  I deliberated for a while about what sentiment to use but ended up going with one from the Birthday banners set.

I have discovered that these cards are hard to photograph!  So here we go!!

I’ll be sharing a tutorial from Bronwyn each week so make sure you follow my blog!

Let me know what you think about this project!

Happy Stamping

  1. That DSP is the perfect back drop for your hot air balloon scene. Love the creative way you substituted the stamps to add a whole new look to that card fold. Your debut card certainly has the WOW! factor.
