Lift Me Up – Fab Friday 110

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge at Fab Friday this weeks.

My card today starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and using a brayer and Pool Party ink I created a gradient look of color.  Next I used both the larger and smaller clouds and stamped them around the card in Pool Party ink.  I matted this on some more Whisper White cardstock before adhering it to the card.

Next I created my hot air balloon using the Lift Me Up Bundle.  The outside of the balloon was cut out of Whisper White cardstock and I used Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, Night of Navy, and Old Olive cardstock for the inside of the hot air balloon.  I adhered the balloon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I tied a bow around the bottom of the balloon in Night of Navy solid baker’s twine.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lift Me Up stamp set in Night of Navy ink.

  1. So lovely! I love the large balloon pieced together with colors – and it looks GREAT in OUR colors, lol. Beautiful background, too – thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

  2. This is “one” of my favorite stamp sets. The back ground is beautiful. How do you manage to get such a light touch with a brayer? Do you have a tip you can share? I always make such a mess of mine when I try using a brayer.
