Today we're showing you Inspired By - Up, Up & Away, Claire Keay - You Had Me at Woof, Just My Type stamp set. I'm showing you Inspired By - Up, Up & Away, but first, a few little things you need to know:
- The May Guest Designer Contest ends on tonight at 10 PM EST. The winner will be announced at the release party. Get the deets here.
- Teasers continue daily through Tuesday, May 3rd. Head on over to the MFT blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with for today's teasers. Every day there will be a prize hidden on two of the Creative Team's blog posts. Leaving a comment on every designer's blog post will give you the best chance of winning every day :) Check the MFT blog daily for the winners.
- The May Hop and Shop will begin at 10:00pm May 3rd, with the hop also starting at the MFT Blog.
I just love the very vintage look of this month's Inspired By - Up, Up and Away. I decided to go CAS to really showcase the balloons. The two balloon images were stamped on patterned paper with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, cut out, and adhered to patterned paper that seems to have been made for them.
I distressed the patterned paper, added the sentiment from the set, tied some twill around, and felt it was done. Here's the inside, with another sentiment from the set.
What a great set to use for encouragement or for someone who needs a lift. I think it would make a great graduation card, too.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I'll be back tomorrow with the last teaser for May--then tomorrow night for the Hop and Shop! Hope to see you for both!
