Hello Creative Friends!
I am back to share another sneak peek from the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog coming out June 4th! For this card I used a new Stamp set and punch, check it out!
The new stamp set used is called Above The Clouds and it has a fabulous matching punch that allows you to cut out the hot air balloons as well as the little basket. The name of the new punch is Hot Air Balloon. The stamp set and punch are not the only new things on this card. This card has TWO of the new In-Colors for the 2019-2021 time frame! These beautiful colors are called Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile! As you can see, the blue is a fabulous, soothing color and the Terracotta Tile is a superb, earthy tone you could mix with many colors. To make this card I started with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches card base in Seaside Spray. The next layer is a skinny layer of Terracotta Tile cut to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 inches. The Whisper White layer is 3 3/4 x 5 inches. I used one of my sponge brayers to quickly run some Seaside Spray across the White card stock in straight across lines. I wanted it to appear to be a light sky. For the clouds I used Balmy Blue stamped off once. The outline of the small balloons were stamped in Terracotta Tile full strength. The more pale inside part of the balloon is a separate stamp using Terracotta Tile stamped off once. I used this same technique for the large Balloons in both colors. the little baskets were stamped in Gray Granite. The sentiment was also stamped in Gray Granite. I popped the large balloons using dimensionals and added some basic rhinestones to finish it off.
Check out all the great stamps that come in this set and the handy punch that matches!
I hope this sneak peek helps you get as excited as I am for the new catalog! Come back soon for more creative inspiration!
