Lift Your Spirits – Lift Me Up

The inspiration for today’s card came from this week’s challenges over at Fab Friday and Global Design Project.



My uses Thick Whisper White cardstock as its base which I layered with a smaller piece of Whisper White cardstock over Watermelon Wonder cardstock.


I stamped a few of the bigger and smaller clouds from the Lift Me Up stamp set in Watermelon Wonder on the right side of the card.  To create my hot air balloon, I just used a paper towel.  This technique is normally done with a daubber or sponge, but I didn’t have either so I just inked up a paper towel using the ink pad and dabbed the top of the stamp with Daffodil Delight ink and Emerald Envy ink.  I cut it out using the coordinating Up & Away Thinlits and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I then cut out a 1-1/2″ banner from the Carried Away DSP and tied a bow using Emerald Envy Baker’s Twine at the bottom.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Lift Me Up stamp set in Emerald Envy and adhered it over the DSP.
