Heartfelt Creations - Balloon Getaway

Good Afternoon All!
I have not had a very good week craft wise, so many projects/cards started and nothing seems to be going the way I would like it to.  I think I need to have a good tidy up and hopefully some inspiration will return, especially as I have so many beautiful products to create with at the moment - did you all see the sneak peak of the new Sweet Lullaby Collection on the Heartfelt Creations Blog yesterday? 

My card today is made using the Celebrate the Journey collection, a CAS card for someone leaving to go on a  travelling adventure or a long holiday!

Card Size : 11 1/2cm x 11 1/2cm (4 1/2" x 4 1/2").
Cut out the paper as shown from the paper collection.  Cut down to 10 1/2cm x 10 1/2cm (4 1/4" x 4 1/4"). Add black ink around the edges and heat emboss with clear powder.  Adhere to the card front. Stamp the Hot Air Balloon onto cream paper from the collection, using the London Fog Ink. Cut out and add the same ink around the balloon edges.  Adhere into place using foam pads. Create a loopy bow from cream twine and tie around the card as shown. Die cut the message from the paper collection using the matching die. Adhere into place using foam pads to complete.

The products used can be found on the Heartfelt Creations blog, along with more ideas and inspiration from the design team.

Thanks for visiting me today,

Oksana, I love the compass rose behind that dimensional balloon...looks like the rays of the sun. It's lovely. I certainly can't tell from this card that Mr. Mojo is on vacation....but I know how not fun that can be. Hope your creativity gets jump started as you tidy up your space. Hugs! said...

This is very beautiful!

Hi Oksana, you're like me..trying to get things made and then have to recognise the fact that the reason I'm not getting anywhere is that I have an ever encroaching plethora of stuff on my desk and my craft room needs a good tidy...of course once I've done that, I can't find anything! Your card is gorgeous, love the background behind the balloon, hugs and happy weekend, Carole Z XX

Oh I love this card. I especially like the balloon and the colors you chose, it ties it all together, kind of vintage style.Thanks for joining us at the Craft-Dee BowZ challenge this month. Join us again soon. Hugs, Barbara

Hi Oksana
Love the vintage feel you have created with this. I too get moments when I start something, then have to come back to it. Sometimes the fresh eyes help.
Have a great day.
