Here is a card I made using one of my favourite set of stamps Up, Up & Away by Verve. I made a masculine card for the Designed 2 Delight blog and also for Magic in the air with cupcakes blog.
I have followed the sketch from Card Patterns #118 and I am also submitting it for anything goes over at Birthday Sundaes.
The card sort of didn't turn out the way I wanted - I had an idea that I could make the hills and clouds more 3D and rounded by using a broad embossing tool on the back of them and giving them a bit of a lift but alas it didn't quite work! To try and emphasise the roundness of the hills I used silicone sealant instead of foam tape - takes a long time to dry (overnight) but it allows the hills to maintain their roundness - can't quite see in the photo but trust me the hills feel round when you see it in real life!
here is a close up of the balloon which I have fussy cut and applied liquid pearls.
I have fussy cut a few of the swirls and have lifted them up slightly and also applied liquid pearls to the trees.
materials: Kaiser 'Lone Ranger' papers; Blue cardstock; Stazon timber brown ink; Verve 'Up Up & Away' stamps; Grant Archival 'small birthday set' stamps, Spellbinders Labels 4 dies; MFT notebook edge die; broad tip embossing tool; Helmar clear silicone adhesive sealant; Ranger white opal liquid pearls.
Thanks for looking and have a great week.
