Inspire.Create.Challenge #044

It’s challenge time!!! This was a much needed creative break as I am in middle of moving. I love how creating a handmade card can relieve stress and overwhelm! Today Inspire.Create.Challenge Design Team used a card sketch for our challenge! I can’t wait for your to see not only mine but the others!!


I wanted to share some new products coming out June 4th in our new Annual catalog! I can’t wait to use this set more over the next year! Above the Clouds is a photopolymer stamp set with hot air balloons and beautiful sentiments! It’s a bundle with a coordinating punch. The punch can also be used to create flower petals with!

I started with a Coastal Cabana card base. I have it’s fold on the left hand side for a little something different. I then ran it through the Tufted embossing folder.

Next I used the clouds and VersaMark to create clear clouds on some vellum paper. I just used clear embossing folder then the heat tool to give them their shine! I adhered it down under the balloon and under some of the clouds.

For the hot air balloon I stamped the balloon with VersaMark onto some new Designer Series Paper called Follow Your Art. Then I used the clear embossing powder and heat tool. I thought it gave a hint of a stitched feel. I then punched it out. The

I added some white baker’s twine behind the balloon to attach the basket of the balloon. I then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to add it to the card.

For the sentiment I used Pacific Point ink and stamped onto some Whisper White and flagged it.

I can’t wait to send this card out! I already have someone in minds because of all the amazing steps they are taking in lately! It would be perfect as a graduation card too!
