Up, Up, and Away (posted by Judith)

Hi folks, well this is the last of my samples for this batch of cards. I have had so much fun creating my projects with these great stamps, and still have so many ideas that I want to make. I have combined Crafty Individuals stamps and the new Artistic Expressions stamps in this project.

I started by creating a background with Distress inkpads, and using a Crafter's Workshop template, sponging some colour through, and then stamping the large swirl over the top. I stamped the large 'inspire' in the bottom right hand corner. I stamped the ballon stamp onto another piece of card, and coloured that with Distress inkpads too. I stamped several Crafty Individuals clocks, and cut them out, arranging them around the balloon image, as if it were travelling through time. I added some Glossy Accents to the clocks. I decoupaged the balloon image, curving the balloon before I attached it to the card. Finally, I added some texture paste through the Mini Punchinella template from Crafter's Workshop, which I coloured with gold paint when the stars were dry.

Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx


  1. That's it - I really do NEED those word stamps now!! This card is brilliant and I might just need to add a couple of CI stamps to the order too. Great background technique and love the colour combination.

  2. The colours are just wonderful especially with that honeycomb effect combined with the swirl: I'd not thought of doing that at all.
