March 2019 Paper Pumpkin meets Lift Me Up

Happy, happy birthday! To celebrate Paper Pumpkin’s birthday we received two birthday stamp sets in this month amazing kit that includes an adorable “pop up” for the inside of the card!! I decided I wanted to take turns using a different “birthday bundles” on each card. Because the pop up for the inside is so adorable I felt I couldn’t improve on that, in fact, I didn’t even want to try;)

For this amazing card I used the Lift Me Up stamp set with coordinating Up and Away thinlets and  in only minutes I had this adorable card! The doted blue card base is the perfect background for my sailing hot air balloon, I’m so sorry it took off without me;/

To begin with  I cut out all the white pieces and the balloon on my Big Shot. Stamp the sentiment using Daffodil Delight card stock and Bermuda Bay ink pad. Use the thinlets to cut out your background colors with the sentiment. I use multi purpose glue around the back side of the balloon and layered each color working quickly before the glue dried, super simple!

Use Stampin’ Dimensional’s to pop up the clouds, balloon and sentiment. 

For the inside I followed the directions that come with the kit and used the Poppy Parade ink spot that came with the kit to stamp a balloon on Whisper White card stock, cut it out with the thinlit and glued it on the inside.
