Up up and Away Graduation

Aw I'm sad today.   It's the last week of my guest spot at The Friday Mashup.  It's been great fun though, lovely fab challenges and a great bunch of ladies on the team.  Thanks for giving me such a warm welcome. 

Here's this weeks challenge -

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project for "Graduation".
  2. Or Make a project using " Text or Definition Stamps and/or Paper".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a " Graduation project with Text or Definition stamps/papers".

For my card I've given you sneak peak into the new Summer Mini Catalogue available from 1st May.  I've used Up up and Away, a fab hot air balloon set with some cool sentiments.  A definite must!

First of all I sponged a panel of Whisper White to make cloud shapes with Marina Mist.  I then stamped Happy Graduation from Teeny Tiny Wishes all over the panel, also in Marina Mist.  I attached this to a mat of Marina Mist. 

I stamped the little basket and trailing flags in Basic Black.  Then on another piece of Whisper White, I again stamped an area with Happy Graduation. Over this I stamped one of the hot air balloons in Basic Black and cut out.  Then attached with a Dimensional.

The background panel is a Basic Black mat with Designer Paper from the Neutrals Stack.  I added Basic Black 5/8" Satin Ribbon over the join of the two papers. Then attached the hot air balloon panel over the top.  The sentiment from Up up and Away is stamped in Basic Black and punched out with the 1" Circle Punch.  It's attached to a mat of Marina Mist punched out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.  It's popped up on a Dimensional. 

The card base is Bashful Blue.  Hope you join in this week and have fun crafting.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend. x
