Linda spotted some really fun looking cloud paper when we went to the scrapbook store last weekend and when she got a few sheets I knew she would do something fantastic with hers and I would be jealous she had the paper and I didn't. I couldn't let that happen so I got a few sheets too! I told her I thought it would be good to do a card with hot air balloons. This one turned out to be my favorite card out of the 5 different designs I did over the weekend.
Make The Cut
Miss Kate Cuttable's File
Studio Calico Here and There Collection
Various patterned cardstocks
Cri-Kits Gel Pens
Colorbox Chalk Ink
Stampin Up Markers
will not be offering this file for download since it was purchased from
Miss Kate Cuttlables. You can purchase this file here - Hot Air Balloons, for a mere 50 cents. I did tweak mine a bit and welded the basket to a balloon so I could have a solid base layer.
did make my banner in Make The Cut and I used the Cri-Kit gel pens to
get the sentiment on the banner. I moved the letters around to get them
to work on the wave of the banner. I forgot to take a picture of the
inside of the card, the inside sentiment reads "An Uplifting Birthday"
and it was done using Hallmark Studio. I was able to match the fonts,
which is another feature I love about using Make the Cut.
dimension on the banner was done by curving it in several places and
then just adding glue to the part that is under the balloon and then on
another wave *okie isn't sure if that made sense or not and wonders
if there are classes for being able to give clear instructions and then
decides she is too lazy to even google it*. I guess you will just have to take my word that it was easy and it made the banner look really cute and wavy looking.
all I would say my "get back into the groove of card making" weekend
was a success. I know I would have gotten more done if it weren't for
that stinking True Blood marathon I was doing but I still say that a
total of 30 cards isn't bad for a weekend of crafting!
