Celebrate Today ~ Travel

Dear Crafters,

Happy New Year!!!!

Seeing as it is holiday time here in Australia, although we are not going anywhere, I wanted to make some cards for those who may be heading off for their annual break.

I have a new product from the Occasions catalogue (on sale from 6th January) called Celebrate Today, and I wanted to incorporate the balloons into this card. Not only can these balloons be used for birthday celebrations, but I also imagined them as hot air balloons!

Celebrate Today

I used the World Map stamp as the background and sponged it with Soft sky ink.

The balloons are inked with soft sky, but before stamping, I kissed it against the World Map stamp, then onto the paper! What a great effect!!!! Next use the Big Shot to die cut the images.

Celebrate Today

I tied a piece of twine at the bottom of each balloon and stamped the sentiment from our Project Life range, Remember This stamp set. I added these with dimensionals.

Celebrate Today

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card too!

Traveler (part 3)

Hello Crafters,

Here is part 3 using the Traveler Stamp Set and World Map.

This cardstock colour is Lost Lagoon, one of the new 2014-2016 In Colours and I think it is just beautiful.

The World Map image is coloured using sponge daubers and ink pads, in Pacific Point, Lost Lagoon and Wild Wasabi.

This little anchor I found in a box stashed away for many years. I am not sure where I got them from, but I thought they just went with this card so well!

Traveler (part 2)

Hello Crafters,

Here is part 2 using the Traveler Stamp Set and another great background stamp, World Map.

I began by stamping the images onto white cardstock with Stazon Black Ink.

The colours are Real Red & Pacific Point. I coloured the World Map image using the Aquapainter and ink pads.

I love the mini Silver Brads around the ship image to give it a port hole look!
