The Sky is the Limit


Yep!  This is my 2nd post for today but I just couldn't help myself!  My new PTI release order (which was my Mother's Day present) came in the mail this morning and I had, and I mean HAD, to play with it all!  So, this card uses quite a few new products.  I'm loving this new Up, Up and Away set!!  So much fun!

I cut just a little bit off the card's width so that I could hang those clouds off the side and still allow it to fit in a regular sized envelope.  I LOVED how Dana did this on her card here.


Here's a closeup of the texture on the card.  Of course it all started out as smooth cardstock.  I used the linen side of the new Linen/Canvas Impression plate on the sky background and I used the canvas side on the clouds to add texture.  That green balloon is stamped with the new PTI color, Simply Chartreuse.  The verdict is still out on that one...not sure what I think of that color yet.


Here's another closeup, this time of the dimension.  I popped up one cloud and two of the balloons with 1/16" pop dots.


And, last by not least is the matching envelope!  I like how it turned out as well.  I stamped the clouds in Spring Rain to match the sky background on the card.  Oh, and one more tidbit...I finally used Summer Sunrise, that color scares me a little.  I actually really liked it and will have to use it again.

Hope you enjoyed this card and if you haven't received your new PTI order yet, I hope you get it very, very soon!

  5. Ooooh, these are fabulous! Love the dimension. That texture on the blue looks great. These plates have been off my radar due to the price, but after seeing your close-up I may have to rethink that! Love how you used the flourish too.
