Carried Away Up And Away Hot Air Balloon

by Joanne James15. February 2017 21:57

Wednesday evening already? Where did the beginning of this week go?! That's what having the James Juniors home from school on half term does for you! We have been having fun with more still to come this week. Time I got back to sharing a card or two with you though; here's one that I made in my Sale-A-Bration class earlier this month featuring a selection of the gorgeous balloon papers that can be yours free during Sale-A-Bration with an order of £45 or more:

 

 Here's the low-down on today's card:

Carried Away With Colour - I love designer series paper at the best of times, but I could get totally carried away with this one! The bright and colourful prints in the Carried Away designer series paper pack are just gorgeous; great for cards but they also make great scrapbook backgrounds too. Check out this gorgeous palette of colours to be found in the 6 designs in this paper pack:

 

Lift Me Up Too - We all know how Stampin' Up! does such a great job of product co-ordination in terms of inks, cardstock and accessories; there are also times when suites of products co-ordinate too. The Carried Away papers are designed to co-ordinate perfectly with the Lift Me Up Bundle in the Spring-Summer Occasions catalogue. The diecut and stamped balloons along with some useful sentiments in a great modern font, make it easy to pull together professional-looking cards. Here I left some of the diecut balloon open so that the papers below would peek through and used the stamp set for the sentiment and to decorate the envelope and inside of my card.

Everyone Loves A Freebie - Would you like to get your hands on the Carried Away Designer Series Paper?

Everyday Hero - You're My Super Hero

by Joanne James13. February 2017 07:00

Happy Monday everyone! Today I'm sharing another card using this week's CAS(E) This Sketch, along with the colours over at Can You Case It:

   

This was the first idea I had when I saw this sketch - I just had to break open my Everyday Hero set and get colouring! Here's my card:

 

Everyday Hero is such a fun set! There are lots of different super hero stamps that can be combined to make great comic book characters. Today I created a 'superwoman' and coloured her with my markers before fussy cutting and positioning her flying in from the side with a few clouds that I had left over from some of my balloon projects. I stamped my skyline onto a piece of Basic Grey and adhered this directly onto my Bermuda Bay panel, then popped my sentiment in between.

I love this fun card and can think of so many women deserving of this accolade!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your day; it's officially the first day of half term here so I am looking forward to making the most of spending some time with the James Juniors with lots of things planned. I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
