Greetings! I'm playing with an adorable new stamp set today, Moving Forward. This set has been on my wish list for a while, in part, because by purchasing it I'm helping a charitable cause. Stampin' Up donates $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities with every purchase of this set. Plus the images are so cute and the greetings perfect for so many occasions.
What a great sketch from Create with Connie and Mary! I love the flags at the bottom of the card. They are so popular right now. This sketch was perfect for using this stamp set. I had plenty of room to fly my blimp among the clouds.
The trick to making these embossed clouds was something I picked up from my fellow Stampin' Up demonstrator, Mary Brown. First you cut out the clouds using the frosting part of the Cupcake Punch. Then they were embossed using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder. So cute! Thanks, Mary!
The flags were all cut using Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper, which became my color scheme. The greeting was cut out with Bitty Banners Framelits. The blimp is "lifting off" with a few Dimensionals.
