Stampin’ Up! takes you Up & Away with this pretty card!

Hello Crafty Friends,

I am finally home from a very extended time away from home helping out my brother.  I am thankful to have visited him, but it is always nice to come home!

I found some time to do some stamping and came up with this card:

Stampin’ Up! carried over the Lift Me Up Stamp set and the Up & Away Thinlits from the prior catalog.  I am so glad they did!  I never had a chance get creative with this set until now.  I was able to use the new Color Theory Designer Series Paper for this card by cutting out the gradient Berry Blurst colors with the Thinlits for the balloon.  I also used the Berry Burst  1/2 inch Finely Woven Ribbon  and the Glitter Enamel Dots to bring in more of this pretty color.  I used Shimmery White card stock to cut out the balloon and the clouds.  To make the sky look a little like wind was blowing, I embossed Soft Sky card stock with the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I used Thick Whisper White card stock as my base.

While I have been away from crafting for a while, Stampin’ Up! added a wonderful new deal!

How awesome is that?  I am late in telling you about this deal, so be sure you get some goodies before the end of the month so you will have some free money to spend in August!

Thanks for checking out my blog and I hope to share something with you again soon!
