Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up Bundle and the FREE Sale-A-Bration Carried Away DSP, to create my share for today.  Don’t you just love this time of year when you can earn so many wonderful FREE products from Stampin’ Up!  


Lift Me Up Bundle Cardiology by Jari


We had a sketch to challenge us this week:Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop sketch challenge


I started by cutting out the large NIght of Navy hot air balloon from the Up & Away Thinletswhich are a part of the Lift Me Up Bundle.  Next, I die cut the pieces for the peek through colors on the balloon.  There are 6 die pieces and I used Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, and Peekaboo Peach from top to bottom, repeating the colors in the same order. Next, I stamped the smallest hot air balloon in Peekaboo Peach onto Whisper White and die cut it.  I stamped the Thank You sentiment in Versa Mark onto Watermelon Wonder and heat embossed it with White Emboss Powder.  I was also die cut, then popped onto the balloon with a dimensional.

The Whisper White individual clouds were then stamped in Mint Macaron, die cut and set aside.  My card base is Watermelon Wonder.  The next layer consists of some Carried Away DSP adhered to a panel of Mint Macaron, then popped onto the base with Dimensionals.  The smaller center panel is another pattern of Carried Away DSP (clouds), adhered to a panel of Mint Macaron.  It was also popped onto the card front with Dimensionals.

Once all of the layers were secured, i added the hot air balloons and the clouds with Dimensionals.  I filled in the largest balloon with some Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some bling, and the front was complete.  The inside of the card has a Whisper White panel with a strip of the Carried Away DSP adhered just to the left side to leave room for a note.

And, because this paper is so cool, I decided to fancy up the outer flap of the envelope.  Just cut a strip of DSP a little longer and wider than your envelope flap, add some liquid glue to the outside of the flap, place the strip on top and cut off the excess with your Paper Snips.

So, if you do not have this Lift Me Up Bundle yet, have I convinced you that you really need to get it?  

I will provide the card stock cuts in inches and a list of the products to create this card at the very end of my post.
