Thanks For the Lift!

Did you know that there are some Spring items in the Holidays from the Heart Gift Guide?  The Lifting Spirits stamp set landed on my doorstep last week, and I have been wanting to ink it up to show you how fun the Spring product is, too!  I used the sketch from The Paper Players for this card.

Now who wouldn't love getting this balloon in the mail?  The clouds, balloon, and banners are a part of the Lifting Spirits stamp set.  I didn't use a lot of patterned paper on this card  - just a little Chantilly and Surf's Up.  I've colored the banners and balloon with Buttercup, Sky, and Sorbet markers after stamping the images with chocolate pigment ink.  Do you see that woodgrain pattern?  That is one of the washi tapes in the book, and I will be using that one a lot!  I brought out the white core in our paper by sanding the dots after dry embossing.

If you don't have your Holiday Guide yet, you can view it online HERE.  The fun thing about going to this link is that you will also find the recipes for the projects in the current Idea Books!

Thanks for stopping in today and giving me a lift!
