12 Days of Giving

Happy Monday! Kim here with a quick card to share!

I have been wanting to work with this paper collection from Heartfelt Creations for sometime now, but there always seems to be something else that needs to get done! Friday morning I put it on the top of my to-do list and am so happy I did. Creative time is so good for my soul!

Celebrate the Journey collection also has some wonderful dies and stamps that play fabulously together! These are just a few!

I chose to make my own background paper using Canadian Scrapbooker’s Superstock, Clearsnap Colorbox chalk & pigment inks and of course the wonderful stamp shown below!

I matted the background with paper from the collection and began to build my card.

I used the hot air balloon stamp to create my dimensional elements and layered May Arts ribbon &  pieces of patterned papers to get the look I wanted. The Spellbinders tag die was used to cut a corresponding element in the collection…such a well designed pack of paper! I ended up cutting the top of the tag off…but was still excited to see how these dies worked with the papers themselves!

Finishing touch for almost all of my cards is to pull out my envelope maker [LOVE!!!!!]  from Stampin’ Up and create a matching envelope! Now to get it addressed and in the mail – the hardest part of the process!
