My projects today features the Above the Clouds stamp set & coordinating Hot Air Balloon Punch. I love the versatility of this set.
The card on the left is a shaker card & the one on the right is my attempt at simple stamping. Let’s have a closer look at each card, starting with the simple stamping card…
The images were stamped with Early Espresso & the fill in colours were stamped off before stamping on the card stock. I used a masking technique to layer the balloons then cutting them around the top outline. And of course I couldn’t not have layers with my cards, so the panel is popped up on dimensionals 😁
Now, let’s take a look at the shaker card…
This shaker card was a labour of love to create. The shaker area was created using NINE layers of Whisper White Thick cardstock for the stitched frame. It took a long time to create but was so effective & allows the shaker fillings to move a bit more freely.
The shaker fillings are silica beads that I dyed with Balmy Blue ink refill. Funnily enough, they turned pink instead of blue, but this turned out to be a happy little accident since the pink actually shows up more 😊
The little balloons were fussy cut out and I attached them using invisible sewing thread which gives them the illusion of floating when you shake the card.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed all my projects & are inspired to give this versatile set a go if you haven’t yet.
