The Alley Way Stamps - Sneak Peek #1

Hey there!!

Today kicks of The Alley Way Stamps February Release Sneak Peeks!!! You are going to LOVE February's release!!! I'm giving you a sneak of Speak Easy!

This set is made up of sentiments! And for my card i used the sentiment Flying By To Say Hi. I first stamped it in pink, then covered the rest of the card base with the sentiment but in blue ink.

Next i stamped the hot air balloon from the Lighter Then Air set 3 times on vellum. I colored the balloons with distress markers. I used a white opaque pen to color the scallops on the basket.

Then i cut each out and ran them through my sticker machine. But i turned over the vellum first. I wanted a softer look, so my stamping and coloring is on the bottom and the 'wrong' side is on top.

Last i adhered each balloon to my card base, trimming the one balloon that was over the edge. Since this card is one layer, its perfect to just pop in the mail to send to your favorite little gal or guy!

That's all from me today! Stop by The Alley Way Stamps blog for more sneak peeks from the other design team ladies! You can also win a new stamp set while you are there!! And Friday is release day, lots of sneaks until then!!
