Above the Clouds Birthday

November 19, 2019

Today’s card is one that I cased from Teri Pocock, a UK Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I love the simplicity of this card.  I embossed Whisper White card using the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.  The embossed card is attached to Balmy Blue card and then scored and folded Basic Black card.  I stamped the cloud image from the Above the Clouds stamp set onto Whisper White card using Balmy Blue ink.  I stamped the greeting from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set onto the left hand side of the stamped Whisper White panel using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I embossed Balmy Blue card using the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder and attached it behind the stamped Whisper White card.  The panel is attached to the card front.  I stamped the outline of one large balloon from the Above the Clouds stamp set using Highland Heather ink and stamped the fill image using the same ink which I had stamped onto scrap paper first.  I stamped the second large balloon from the same stamp set using Mint Macaron ink, again stamping onto scrap paper first for the fill image.  I punched out both images using the Hot Air Balloon Punch.  I stamped the basket image from the Above the Cloud stamp set using Sahara Sand ink and again stamped the fill image using the same ink which is stamped onto scrap paper first.  I punched out the basket images using the Hot Air Balloon Balloon Punch.  The baskets are attached to each of the balloons.  I attached the Highland Heather balloon onto the card front and added the Mint Macaron balloon using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the small three balloon image from the Above the Clouds stamp set several times onto a strip of Whisper White card using Balmy Blue ink.  I stamped the fill image using the same ink stamped onto scrap paper first.  I also stamped the cloud image from the same stamp set around the balloons, using post-it-notes where necessary to mask the balloon images.  I attached a narrow strip of Balmy Blue card behind one long edge of the stamped card before attaching the panel to the bottom of Whisper White card.

Don’t you agree this is just so gorgeous.  Thanks Teri for the inspiration.

Bye for now,

Kris
