Hello there, I love playing with new stamp sets but every once in a while, I love going back to the classics. I love this Up & Away set from Mama Elephant. It is great for so many occasions and today I am using it for a birthday card.
I started off by stamping the monkey and balloons from the set with black ink. These were coloured using Copic Markers. I then fussy cut the balloons and used the coordinating die from the die collection. I didn't use the balloon die as it does not cut the strings and I wanted to keep those intact on the die cut. I then cut various pieces of white cardstock and vellum using the MFT Pierced Square Frame die and then the ME Landscape dies for the clouds.
I took the inside piece of the frame and blended Distress Ink over it, as well as the frame. I used Peacock Feathers at the bottom and Tumbled Glass at the top. I took the sentiment, from the ME Mini Messages stamp set, and stamped this on to the bottom cloud with black ink. I then layered up the clouds on to the piece and then added it to a white 4.75" x 4.75" card base. The frames were layered up and then added also. The monkey and balloons were added with foam tape. I then coated the balloons with Glossy Accents.
