Up & Away – A Travelling We Will Go

Welcome back!  I have a fun and quick card for you today.

Inspired by: Use Your Stuff (#477) Travel Theme; Cupcake Inspiration (#563) for the colors; and Paper Players (#629) for the sketch.

Here is the result:



  • Case Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Accent Panel: (3⅞” x 5⅛”) Real Red cardstock.
  • Focal Panel: (3¾” x 5”) Basic White cardstock.
    • Using a torn piece of Copy Paper to resemble Clouds and a Blending Brush, Blushing Bride ink was applied to create the Sky of Clouds.
    • The sentiment, Treat Yourself to a Wonderful Day!, from the retired Wagon Full of Fun stamp set, was stamped with Real Red ink.
  • Focal Image – Hot Air Balloon:  Tahitian Tide, Real Red and Basic White cardstock scraps.
    • The Hot Air Balloon was die-cut using the Balloon die from the retired Up & Away Thinlits Dies set.
    • Blushing Bride ink was applied to the Basic White cardstock with the Blending Brush and fussy-cut to fit behind the Balloon.
    • A bit of Real Red cardstock was fussy-cut to fit behind the Balloon Basket.

Keeping the card clean and simple, the Hot Air Balloon was added to the card front with Dimensionals.

Have you ever been up in a Hot Air Balloon?  It is on my bucket list and what a great gift that would be!

Glad you spent some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!
