Hello crafty friends!
How about a crafty project that isn’t winter or Christmas themed? Maybe something cheerful and uplifting? :) I think this card will do the trick:
I used oodles of designer paper from the Sidewalks pad from October Afternoon and the recently released Sky’s the Limit stamp/die set from Taylored Expressions. I stamped the large hot air balloon on Choice Snow White cardstock and cut out with the matching die. I then paper pieced the balloon portion with a piece of the designer paper and highlighted the swirls using a Copic marker. The die set also has a couple of itty bitty clouds that I also cut from Choice Snow White cardstock. For the background I cut a circle using a Lacey Circles Nestabilities die and stamped a sentiment from it in black ink. I added dots of Light Blue around the outside edges using a Viva Decor Pearl pen.
I accented the main image with some twill ribbon that I tied into a bow. I added a couple of little heart stick pins through the knot. To keep the pointy ends from poking anyone I dabbed a bit of Glossy Accents to the tips. No more ouchy ouchies!
That is it for me tonight but I should be back soon with a … tag! One inspired by the twelve tags of Christmas that Tim Holtz has been making. :)
