up, up and away!

I thought I'd show you one of the new sets in the Summer Mini. Its called Up, Up & Away - basically its really fun hot air balloons. I just LOVE it! 

So this is the make and take we made at my preview party last Monday!

No Limit!

Stamp Set: Up, Up & Away
Ink: Pool Party, Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso
Cardstock: Pool Party, Whisper White, Lucky Limeade
Big Shot: Adorning Accents
Punch: 1" Circle
Accessories: Pool Party Baker's Twine

We started with stamping the birds and clouds in the background. Next we had a go using the adorning accents with the big shot - first to cut the curvy edge and then to emboss the co-ordinating curvy edge - doesn't it make a fab "hill"?! Everything was adhered together. The balloons were stamped in Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder and Calypso Coral using some of the different patterns available, they were cut out and adhered with dimensionals to the card. To finish it off stamp the sentiment, punch it out and add some baker's twine. I am SO totally loving this baker's twine at the moment - such a great addition to cards and SO inexpensive too!!!

I hope you enjoyed seeing these hot air balloons! I am certainly enjoying them a lot!! Why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think?! 

Thanks for popping by,

Happy Stampin',
