With SAB ending this Friday, 31 March I thought I would share with you some of the cards using the FREE products you are able to earn while it is still going. Don’t be late – all you have to do is place an order of $AUD90.00 to qualify for your free product. Please be aware that some of the items have been sold out.
My card today is using the lovely (FREE) “Carried Away” Designer Series Paper (DSP) which matches the “Up & Away” Bundle from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue & includes the “Lift Me Up” Stamp Set & the “Up & Away” Framelits.
I will admit that this is not my idea, I have actually cased it from a friend of mine, the very talented Kris. Thanks Kris for your inspiration – it was a perfect way to get me started on this DSP! Be sure to pop on over to her blog to check out all the amazing creations she does.

The challenge this week over at Freshly Made Sketches is simple & easy. You can make it what you like. I decided to keep mine fairly simple with a little Water Colouring thrown in.
To create my card, I coloured a piece of Shimmery White CS with my Aqua Painter, Pear Pizzazz Ink for the grass, Soft Sky & Pool Party Inks for the Sky.
Once dry, I then stamped the Grass Image from the “Glamper Greetings” Stamp Set over my “grass” in Pear Pizzazz Ink. A couple of small clouds from the “Life Me Up” Stamp Set were stamped in the sky (very had to see) in Soft Sky Ink.
I then cut the piece into 3 equal pieces before layering onto piece of Basic Black CS leaving small edges showing around all pieces. I originally had it layered onto Whisper White, but it did nothing for the card. The Black makes the piece pop & the soft Water Colouring stand out a little.
The piece was layered onto a piece of Whisper White CS & then to the Base Card – Basic Black.
I have had an idea in my head about using this image after seeing Balloons in a certain way, so I set out & inked the large Balloon from “Lift Me Up” Stamp Set with Bermuda Bay Ink & Daffodil Delight using a Sponge Dauber. I love how it turned out with the 2 colours. This was then die cut with the matching “Up & Away” Framelits & adhered to the CardFront with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The small Balloon was inked in Bermuda Bay, cut with the matching “Up & Away” Framelits before it too, was adhered to the Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I masked off the top part of the “…..Happy Birthday” Image from the same set with Sticky Tape, inked it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, removed the mask & stamped it onto a scrap of Whisper White CS. I then cut it into a Banner Shape 1 end before adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To complete the card, I tied 2 small Bows from Whisper White Twine & adhered to the Balloons with Mini Glue Dots. The birds were hand drawn with a Project Life Journaling Pen.
Thank you once again FMS for a great sketch. You still have time to play along.
