Love is in the Air


I hope everyone had a great weekend!! I had to work, but i did some crafting and spent some time with my mom and brother, which meant staying away from the computer!! It was a nice break but now its back to regular scheduled programming (which means blog posting, photo editing, studying, blog reading!!) :D

One card i made this weekend (you should see my pile of card i need to blog about!! its over flowing!! hehe) was a card that came together nicely!! (love with that happens!!) I was digging in my overflow stash and found a cloud die cut and a circle die cut. When i saw them together i though about making the circle a sun and that's when i new i had the perfect stamp set to use with them!

I pulled out The Alley Way's Lighter then Air set. I stamped the hot air balloon on some pattern paper and paper pieced the balloon. Next i used some distress ink and an ink applicator to create my sun. I added a 3 tiny clear buttons to my cloud.

Next i found a die cut banner in my stash and stamped the sentiment Love is in the Air. Before adding all my elements i used a tiny heart stamp from Once Upon a Time and second generation stamped the heart in blue ink, but it was really light so i added a few more with first generation stamping!

I love the little scene i created, especially that i was able to use a some of my stash!!

Have a great day!!

  1. I love it. Great colors, love the dimension, piecing, the little hearts on the background, just perfectly balanced.

  2. Your little balloon, sun and cloud scene is absolutely adorable, Dana! the wee hearts and buttons add that extra impact! Fabulous! Great to hear you had some mom and brother time over the weekend; nice to connect with family! Fab card, my friend!

  3. The internet went down - I spent some time with my family. They seem like nice people. :D
    I totally love this scene - the depth on the sun with that inking is awesome!
