Lift Me Up - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hello!  Welcome to another blog hop with the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team.  If you came from Dani's blog, thank you for continuing on to me.  I'm Holly and I live in the US :)
I hope that you are inspired by our Lift Me Up blog hop.  We are featuring the Lift Me Up stamp set and the coordinating Up & Away Thinlits Dies.

The first card I want to show you today is a "stepped up" version of the original one I made.  I love these little clouds and I'm all about ribbon, so why not add a bunch? :)


You can see the original below on the right.  I liked the look of the card but, again, I wanted to incorporate the diecut clouds and add a little more detail.


I split the sentiment up between the front and the inside and I really like how it turned out.


What do you think?


For the second card that I made, I had a little fun with the small balloon thinlit mixed in with the Large Letter Framelit Dies.  I cut up the sentiment for the balloon and added some Night of Navy enamel dots from the Regals Enamel Shapes collection.


I diecut some more clouds and added them behind and over the letters to give the clouds some more dimension.   Did you notice the cute designer paper in the background?  That is the Carried Away DSP pack that coordinates perfectly with this stamp set.  You can earn it free during the Sale-a-Bration promotion going on right now!


I added some Watermelon Wonder 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon, some Night of Navy Solid Baker's Twine and a white paper clip from the Mini Paper Clips Combo Pack.




I hope you enjoyed my creations!  I would love to hear from you before you continue on!  I'm certain Jennifer has something amazing on her blog too, so make sure to make your way around the hop!  You won't be disappointed. :)



Have a wonderful day!

  1. I always enjoy seeing a simple card stepped up that way, especially when everything coordinates as yours do. Your "Soar" card is my fav though!
