An Enchanting Up, Up & Away!

Gosh, where has the week gone?!  The weather here is still dismal so I have been busy crafting and have lots to show you over the next few days.


It was my nephew's birthday this week.  Do you find 8 year old boys are hard to make cards for? Well I think this set Up, Up & Away is perfect!    
As you can see I teamed it up with the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Papers which are still available - but only until the end of the month (or while stocks last).  Can you also spy the gorgeous Organdy Ribbon and Everyday Enchantment Brad - these are from the Exclusive Free Pack you receive when you purchase £45 or more of Stampin' Up! products - aren't they gorgeous? 
The balloon images were stamped onto Confetti Cream card using Lucky Limeade, Pool Party & Calypso Coral ink, the basket was added in Soft Suede ink using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure it was in the right place. I love the flying birds image so added a few of those in Basic Gray ink. This panel was then matted onto Lucky Limeade card. The base card is also Lucky Limeade with a mat of Confetti Cream and the Everyday Enchantment DSP. I hid the join between the papers with a length of 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon in Very Vanilla.  The sentiment from Up, Up & Away was stamped on Confetti Cream using Soft Suede ink, punched using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and layered onto a Calypso Coral Scallop Oval Punch.  I wound the Organdy Ribbons round my fingers before securing onto the card with a Calypso Coral Brad.


Up, Up and Away is available in the current Summer Mini Catalogue - it is such a versatile set containing 14 stamps.
