Lighter than Air Card Tutorial

today’s card uses the Lighter than Air Designer Series Paper (162747) that uses lovely soft subtle colors for spring. Here in North Georgia Helen holds a Balloon Festival each year that includes a race called the Helen to the Atlanta Balloon Race.

This event is held in May this year and so when I saw the paper it immediately made me think of all the different balloon’s that dot the sky as they head to the coast. If you haven’t seen something like this it is an experience for sure.

Today’s card uses a quick and easy fun fold that highlights these lovely papers.

And since I wanted to convey a sentiment that was not included in the Hot Air Balloon Stamp Set (162748) I chose to use the Perennial Postage Stamp set (162598) instead. Check out this tutorial that I created for you.

And of course I’m including my PDF that has the measurements, supply list, step by step instructions and video link too. Making it simple to have everything together when you create yours.

Sweet as a Peach

Today’s card uses one of the Suites from the Annual Catalog, It immediately drew my attention with it’s wonderful color pallet. After all I live in Georgia, so how could I resist a set great sentiments and images of peaches? We are the peach state after all.

I think you’re going to really like this Suite, so much so I’m going to be doing a class with it in August! I made today’s card for the Maui Incentive Trip card swap that I will be participating in this week. And really love the way it turned out using a simple sponging technique to create a two tone effect on the fruit and branches.

And it’s a fun fold too! So why not check out my video tutorial and see what you think?

Pinch me… I can’t believe we’re in Maui!

And on a personal note since today is the first day of the Maui Incentive Trip I wanted to share the little package that I received last month with our travel documents.

This little package contained a Maui pin, along with our name tags, luggage tags, travel wallet with paperwork, and masks since Maui has a mask mandate still in place.

I can’t tell you how excited we are to be in Maui, courtesy of Stampin’ Up! And we wouldn’t be going if it weren’t for my amazing team, The Blue Mountain Stampers and my wonderful stampers, and customers. This will truly be a trip of a life time for us. So thank you again and stop back by, as I’ll be sharing some photos will you both here and on my facebook page with you as I’m able.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing the cute little 3D project I made for the swap with you.
