I'm continuing the simple theme today with 3 cards made from the Spellbinders Up, Up and Away die set. There is quite a variety of dies in this set but, like Country Charm, it is not a favourite of mine. All the cards are very simply constructed which is useful if you need a quick card.
Here's the first one -
Balloon has been cut from Kraftcore and sanded. Basket is from a patterned paper and has been inked through the die with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Baker's Twine is from the Earthtones Set. Sentiment is from the Creative Expressions Time Flies Stamp Set - I've cut it out with Labels Twenty-Eight and inked through the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I popped an Idea-ology Hinge Clip on top. The background is Couture Creations Ornate Diamonds - I thought it looked like clouds this way up. I inked all over with Faded Jeans.
Here's the second card -
Background is Couture Creations Seedling Nouveau and has been inked all over with Dried Marigold Distress Ink. The Baker's Twine is from the Pastel Set. The sentiment is from the Creative Expressions Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set and has been stamped using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Labels Twenty-Eight. The balloons are cut from DCWV Nana's Nursery. I edged the card with some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl.
Here's the last one -
The main part of the kite has been cut from Kraftcore and sanded. The bows and the backing paper are from Prima. The Baker's Twine is from the Vintage Set. The flower border is from Studio 490 - It's More Flower Art and has been stamped using Dusty Concord Distress Ink. The sentiment is from Studio 490 - Sentimental Art and has been stamped using Plum Archival, cut out using Fancy Framed Tags One and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.
Hope you find some inspiration from these if you have purchased these dies.
Thanks for stopping by.
