It’s Time to Sale-A-Brate – Carried Away Designer Series Paper

Stampin Up - Carried Away Designer Series Paper & Lift Me Up Bundle
Stampin Up - Carried Away Designer Series Paper & Lift Me Up Bundle

Happy Wednesday and first day of Sale-A-Bration and Occasions catalogs. There were some technical difficulties earlier today, but the Stampin’ Up! website and my Online Store are live with lots of new products. Check them out by clicking here.
Today’s project is one I made a few days ago when I had some time to play with the Carried Away Designer Series Paper (a Sale-A-Bration product you can earn for FREE with any $50 order). The paper coordinates with the Lift Me Up Bundle in the Occasions Catalog.

I don’t know about you, but hot air balloons are very trendy right now and Stampin’ Up! is right on trend. I remember holiday shopping and noticing hot air balloons in store displays including Target.

Want to make this project? Here are the instructions:
1. Score a piece of 8.5” x 11” Smoky Slate cardstock on the 8.5” side at 4.25” and then score on the 11” side at 5.5” to get two card bases. Set one card base aside for another card.
2. Cut a piece of 12” x 12” Designer Series Paper to 3” x 4”. Tip: If you cut your paper to this size there will be no waste. Just make sure you are cutting the design the right way.
3. Stamp the two smaller clouds on Whisper White cardstock in Smoky Slate ink then cut them out with the coordinating cloud shaped thinlits
4. Stamp the hot air balloon on Whisper White cardstock in Watermelon Wonder ink then cut out with the coordinating hot air balloon thinlit
5. Cut a piece of Smoky Slate ribbon 5” and adhere across the middle of the Designer Series Paper securing the ends behind with glue dots
6. Add your hot air balloon with three Stampin’ Dimensionals
7. Adhere the Designer Series Paper to your cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue
8. Add your clouds with Multipurpose Liquid Glue
9.  Stamp the sentiment in the lower right corner of the card in Smoky Slate ink
10. Add four rhinestones to the hot air balloon

I have been busy playing with the Lift Me Up Bundle and Carried Away Designer Series Paper this past week. I have some special projects to share with you this Friday. I hope you’ll come back to check it out!

Happy Stampin’,
Christine
