This week the theme for the challenge over at the A Muse|Studio Challenge Blog is "which way does the wind blow?" and I thought, what am I going to do with that? So...I looked through my stamps and yes, my kite jumped out at me....several times.....but then, I saw it, perfect!!! The hot air balloon from the Love Conquers All stamp set. I stamped it on sugar card stock, using bubblegum, lime and grape ink, and cut the 3 hot air balloons out close to the edge. Using the cloud dies, I cut the clouds from sugar card stock. Using the grass die I cut the grass 3 times, once from grass card stock, and twice from the gingham grass card stock.

I stamped the sentiment "Come fly with me" from the Come Fly With Me stamp on the grass colored grass. I then layered one of the gingham grass die cuts behind the grass die cut using Tombow adhesive. Using 3D foam squares I adhered the 2 layers of grass to a Sky 4 bar card base. I then applied Tombow adhesive to the back of the 2nd gingham grass die cut and slid it down behind the grass on the card base and pressed it in place.

Next I started layering the hot air balloons and clouds on the card, using Tombow adhesive, and 3D foam squares, I used 2 layers of foam to create more dimension on one of the hot air balloons.

Been a bit absent from the challenges the last couple weeks but glad to be back up and creating.

For this weeks Blog Challenge the theme is "Bloom Where You Are Planted". So for my card I decided to go super clean and simple. I love the Friend to Friend stamp set, because you have such choice of botanicals and sentiments. I have several Thank You cards to make, so that was the sentiment I chose for my card.
I used Papaya for the card base, and cherry and onyx mats. I stamped the flower using Versafine Onyx ink on sugar card stock. I layered the mats, using 3D foam mount in between the onyx and cherry mats, and tomboy adhesive to adhere the sugar layer to the onyx layer, and then the cherry to the papaya card base. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx ink....quick and simple and a little elegant!!
