Hi card making friends, I’m so excited that today is finally here for the Stamp to Share Lift Me Up Bundle Blog Hop.
Welcome to a brand new International Blog Hop – Stamp to Share.
Once a month my Stampin Up friends and I will fill your screen with Stampin Inspiration from around the globe. If you just arrived from Kylie’s blog welcome – and I know you enjoyed her projects because they are FABULOUS!
For March our Challenge is the Lift Me Up Bundle – one of the most popular from the current Stampin’ Up Occasions catalogue.
Stamp to Share Lift Me Up Bundle Project #1 – is my Over the Top Card.
The front looks pretty normal – LOL
I used the FREE Sale-a-bration Designer Paper Carried Away (page 7 of the brochure) for my card and stamped all the balloons in the coordinating colours of Crumb Cake, Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach.
The sentiment is cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and I used the coordinating Up & Away Framelits to cut out the balloons and clouds – don’t you LOVE the clouds? hope so, haha…
The big balloon is actually a pop out, so it sticks out of the inside of the card by an inch. To help cover up the hinge I covered it in clouds and then I kept on going..haha, but I LOVE the finished design. I have been for many balloon rides in my life, I used to be on a team, so I can totally relate to the picture I created….and it brings back such happy memories.
Stamp to Share Lift Me Up Bundle – Project #2
Took just a bit longer, haha – I call this “Sunrise”. It reminds me of The Albuquerque Air Balloon Festival.
This is a 9 x 21 inch shadow box frame. I water coloured a large piece of water colour paper for the background and then sponged the rays in Daffodil Delight.
Stamped coloured and cut out all the air balloons and clouds.
The trees along the bottom are the Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set.
Hope you enjoyed my projects. Now it’s time to go and see what the rest of the “Stamp to Share” Designers have come up with for this week’s challenge.
