Up Up and Away in the frame


Woohoo we have sunshine today.  Let's enjoy it!  So without any more chat let's get a look at my card for today. 

The Less is More challenge this week is to follow a sketch either using a square or a circle.  I've chosen the square - 


My design came from the inspriration of another blogger - Susan.  She does amazing work, you can see her card here

I've started with a 5" x 5" square card.  I've started with a Night of Navy mat base.  Added some Whisper White onto it and stamped clouds and birds from Up Up and Away in Night of Navy.  Then added a frame of Bashful Blue with the middle punched out using the 1 3/8" Square Punch.  The Whisper White frame was punched out with the 1 1/4" Square Punch and scored with lines using my new fabby Scoring Tool.  This was attached using Dimensionals.

I inked up my balloon using Rose Red Stampin' Write Marker and stamped on Whisper White.  Then coloured the middle stripe with Wild Wasabi.  I also used this colour for the basket.  Then cut out using my trusty Paper Snips and attached to the frame with a dimensional.  The sentiment was also inked up with the Rose Red Stampin' Write Marker. 

I'm really pleased with how this has turned out and I'm loving this new stamp set from the new Summer Mini avaliable from 1st May.  The new scoring tool is also in this catalogue.  Remember to check them out and the other new fabby products!
