Up and Away

I'm a bit later than normal to the LIM party this week - I messed up my card so started again!  The theme is up and away which gave me the perfect excuse to break out some new balloon dies and to pair them with one of my all time favourite stamps - I think it came out super cute.

The balloons were die cut from a sheet of card covered with stick-it thin sheet glue so I could foil them with rainbow foil before die cutting.  The letters are die cut from the balloons automatically so I can add those to another project later.   I added some sewing cotton around the balloons and tied them together around my favourite panda's arm so it looks like he is being carried up and away as per the theme.  Adding a couple of comic book style "zooms" under this feet shows he's moving pretty fast too!


  1. That foiling looks awesome Tara... what a great effect!
