Love is in the Air with the Creation Station Blog Hop

 I am back this month with the Creation Station Design Blog Hop! I was beyond thrilled to join this group of talented women again after a little needed holiday break. We plan to inspire you each month with Stampin' UP! creative top of the line projects with a theme from all around the globe! We hope that you hop thru each blog and leave comments as we all love to hear praise about our creations!

This month our theme was "Love is in the Air, Love is Everywhere" but not limit it to Valentine's Day but just a general show of love any day. This thought of "love in the air" brought me to use the Lift Me Up Stamp Set and Up and Away Thinlits Dies Bundle #144712 from the NEW Occasions Catalog. Both of these cards are perfect for a stamp a stack card class and a great way to showcase this bundle to your customers!


This first card incorporated lots of stamping using the Lift Me Up Stamp Set. The hot air balloons are done with Pool Party, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Bermuda Bay Classic Inks. The lighter pink one is a "stamped off" version with Flirty Flamingo as well as the Bermuda Bay one. "Stamped off" means to ink your stamp image up and then stamp once off on a scrap piece of paper. This will make the ink appear lighter when stamped again immediately on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. All of the hot air balloons are die cut out with the new Up and Away Thinlits Dies. Smoky Slate Classic Ink is use on the clouds and greetings. That DSP layer is a piece of the Pool Party diagonal stripes from the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack.
 My next card is so simple and perfect for a stamp a stack class. I stamped the small hot air balloon in Smoky Slate Classic Ink directly on top of the Smoky Slate Cardstock base in a random pattern. Then I die cut the letters X and O with Flirty Flamingo, Whisper White, Pool Party and Peekaboo Peach Cardstock. The Large Letter Framelit Dies make this card so easy to XOXO (love). I stamped the greeting in Flirty Flamingo Classic Ink and added to the middle of the letters. The Bermuda Bay Baker's Twine bow adds a pop of color and whimsy. Just a nice way to say it with love....
