Kylie 's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop July 2019

Thanks So Much for stopping by!

For those who are stopping for the first time, 
my name is Annette Ball I am an independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Canada 

Welcome to our Demonstrator Training Blog Hop!  I am so thrilled to be a part of Kylie's Demonstrator Training Group.  I have learned so much!  And Always look forward to this Hop!! I am Excited to share my card with you today. 

Today I am featuring the Above the Clouds Bundle!! One of my favourite kinds of bundle...a stamp set and makes easy cards in no time at all!!

item# 151135

Here is my card...I was inspired by those pictures you see when the sky is filled with hot air balloons...

For the background I used the Pretty Label Punch to punch out one label, laid it on my piece of Whisper White and sponge daubered some Balmy Blue layering them in rows to create my sky.  Then I stamped a several balloons in a bunch of colours...Lovely Lipstick, Blueberry Bushel, Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody and Coastal Cabana.  I did the same with the little balloons...which I fussy cut!! But first I used Memento Ink to stamp the black outlines to complete the 2-step stamping process.
I took a piece of soft suede and ran it through the wood plank embossing folder (which I just realized is no longer a current product/but the subtle folder would have worked just as well) to give my baskets a little dimension...given the chance to recreate this card |I would have sponged the edges too!!

|Here is a closer look..Pretty much every balloon has dimensionals and some have double to add more dimension!

I Hope you enjoyed my card today.  And that you hop along to the next blog..there are some Amazing cards to see!!
Thanks so Much for stopping by!!
