Balloons AND More Balloons!

K… there is lots of fun to be had with the new Up Up & Away Cutting Plate from Taylored Expressions. This die set comes with extra dies for the balloons so layering is a breeze. So much fun and it can be used many ways!

My cards today are both from the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoast. So many challenges all month long!

Are you playing along with us? If not, you’re missing out on the chance to lift the spirits of women battling breast cancer at MD Anderson, and also on more than $5000 in prizes from your favorite crafty companies.

So what are you waiting for? Get to stamping!

For this card I trimmed the frame off of the Up Up & Away Cutting Plate with scissors and used old book page that was inked  to die cut my balloons. I sprayed a little Dylusions Spray White Linen and doodled a border. The phrase is from When Your Heart Speaks.

For my next project I trimmed two of the balloons from the frame of the Up Up & Away Cutting Plate and added Silver Glitter Paper (that I inked with Touch Twin Markers).  I heat set the balloons with a Ranger Heat Tool. I added a phrase first (Leave a Little Sparkle) and then attached my balloons. I used a pen to fill in the letters and stars onto my balloon strings.
