Good morning! I am so excited to be starting off my week of Growing in Unity! In case you aren't familiar with it, I will be sharing a project all week using Unity or Ippity stamps with you, and at the end of the week, I will draw a random winner from those who leave comments throughout the week - and they will win 2 Itty Bitty stamps of their choice!!! So make sure and leave me a comment throughout the week for more chances to be the lucky winner! So...without further ado, here is my first card for the week:
I used the colors from this weeks Play Date Cafe challenge:
I have always loved hot air balloons...the thought of going up in one terrifies me, but I think they are so beautiful! So...the sentiment seemed to be a perfect fit for the images!
I used the hot air balloon and cloud images from the most recent May Kit of the Month, and the sentiment is from the April Kit of the Month. Here is a picture of each of them:
I used pattern paper from one of the new Indie Chic 6x6 paper pads from My Mind's Eye - I'm in love with these lately!!! I stamped and fussy cut out the clouds and hot air balloons, and arranged them on a panel of blue paper.
After matting that panel in black, I adhered it to the background paper (also matted in black) - with washi tape! This was my first attempt at using it, and even though I am still figuring out what to do with it - I am hooked! It is so fun!
I added the sentiment, and pop-dotted the balloons for some dimension.
Finished off with a jute twine bow, and a PTI button.
So glad you stopped by to visit me today! Have a wonderful day - and don't forget to "have Courage to Dream!"
