Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest: Shannon Lane - Lift Me Up

http://crushoncolour.blogspot.com.au/2016/11/snow-much-love.htmlWelcome to the Crazy Crafters' Blog Hop with our Special Guest stamper, Shannon Lane - we are thrilled to have Shannon join us this month and so excited to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) any project that has been created by her.

Whether you are starting the blog hop here at my blog, Stephanie Fischer - The Crafty Thinker, or have come from the person before me, be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey on this blog hop.

This is Shannon's card that I have chosen to CASE.  As soon as I saw the mountain elements, I thought of the gorgeous Carried Away paper in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue (free with a purchase of $90).  


So this is my card based on Shannon's.  I cut the mountains out and glued them onto the sheet of paper with the cloud images (from the same paper pack).

I love the Lift Me Up suite and the way that it coordinates with the Carried Away Paper pack
The balloon is stamped in Basic Black ink onto Real Red cardstock and cut out with the matching die (buying the stamp set and thinlits as a bundle gives a saving of 10%). To blend the balloon basket with the sky, I cut off the lower part of the red balloon and replaced it with one I had created with Mint Macaron cardstock.  I used a Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker to colour the basket.  I then adhered the balloon to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I hope you've enjoyed this card and I welcome your comments.

Your tip about stamping the basket onto the cardstock to match the background is simply genius - I will be using that tip for sure!
