Balloon Ride Layout

Layouts are easy with the fun "ZIP STRIPS" that come with our papers.  Each sheet has a zip strip, and this layout uses two of them.  The 3 short journaling phrases are from a zip strip, as well as the fun strip across the bottom of the layout.

Balloons make everyone feel happy

These two balloons were a fun addition to this card.  How did I get them to look like the patterned paper?  I stamped them ON the patterned paper and cut them out, placing each balloon on top of the original stamped image on the card base!  Love this technique.  Adds so much to any stamped paper crafting.

Sand it down

CLose to my Heart card stock is different than most..... it has a fantastic White Core!  What does that mean?  It means you can sand it, distress it, etc and have the white core show through.  The card above has two pieces of card stock that have been run through the machine with an embossing folder, and then sanded gently to show some of the white core.  Oh, and yes this frame is from the cricut cartridge, art philosophy also and the stamp is from the same set of stamps as the others in the past few posts!  Close to My Heart offers so much.  You just have to check it out

Big Hug

Here is another card using LollyDoodle papers and another fun Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge shape, and yep, there is a stamp set that goes along with it as well, in fact.... it is in the same stamp set as the frame in the blogpost on the18th.  Each set of stamps has many shapes, designs and fun.  Oh and another favorite in this idea book.... the fun epoxy embellishments (which you see above on top of the flowered strip and wash tape.)  You didn't know we have washi tape?  Well yes, we do.  We have many fun designs.  Check out the new idea book.
