Today we’re previewing three new releases for February:
  • Inspired by Lighthouses Stamp Set
  • Inspired by Up, Up & Away Die-namics dies
  • Fix-It Fred Stamp Set
I’m showing you the Up, Up & Away Die-namics dies. This die set was designed to coordinate perfectly with the previously released Inspired by Up, Up and Away stamp set.

For my card, I chose some patterned paper with a sweet landscape that worked well with the balloons. I made my card front just like usual, then decided where to place my balloon dies, taped them down with removable tape, and ran them through my die cutting machine. Then I taped the card together with more removable tape and proceeded to stamp the balloon images from the set through the die cut openings. I’ll admit to holding my breath the entire time since I don’t have much of this paper left, LOL! But, happily it worked flawlessly. I waited to add my twine until this point.

You see the stamped balloons through the openings in the card front and when you open the card you see this on the inside--I added the sentiment and it was done!
