CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Up In the Air


Our theme for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop is “Up in the Air”!  Now…that could mean butterflies, dragonflies, birds, bugs.  I went with the Lift Me Up stamp set as a hot air balloon being up in the air.  I wonder what the rest of the Design Team will use!  We don’t see each others cards before the hop!


Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Soft Sky cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
  • A 2-1/2 x 4 piece of Sweet Treats Designer Paper in the Soft Sky grid pattern was added to the top of a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White.
  • Some Playful Palette Washi Tape was added along the seam and cut on an angle.
  • The hot air balloon from Lift Me Up was stamped with Emerald Envy Ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored with Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum Markers and the AquaPainter.
  • Clear Wink of Stella was added over the Sweet Sugarplum Marker for a little sparkle.  It was cut with the Up & Away Thinlit Dies along with a couple of the clouds.
  • The greeting from Lift Me Up was stamped with Emerald Envy Ink.
  • A few In Color Enamel Shapes were added to the front under the greeting and one to the hot air balloon itself.
