Balloons away – #CYCI144

Can You Case It?’s [CYCI#144] first colour challenge for 2017 are some of my favourites. Well… I feel like I need to say that as I suggested this yummy combination, LOL!

Seriously though, I’m sure you’ll agree, they are lovely and very summery. Check them out… Watermelon, Aqua, White and Light Gray.

 

 

Here is my inspiration using this colour combo.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Lift Me Up, Up & Away thinlit dies

Doesn’t this make you want to jump in that basket and go in search of Dorothy and Toto?!!

I’m totally in love with the Lift Me Up bundle in Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions catalogue. I love how the hot air balloons are sized differently, some are dies and some are stamps, but all work together to give you lovely coordination. On the card is the loveliest of the largest intricate balloon dies, then I have stamped two balloons from the coordinating set on the envelope. I just love how they all work together.

The background paper is the Carried Away Designer Series Paper set, which is a Sale-a-Bration freebie and designed to coordinate beautifully with this set. I added a layer of vellum over the top to dull some of those balloons, giving them the feeling that they are off in the distance. I added in some angles for interest.

I hope you are loving these colours and the inspiration the Can You Case It? Design team are sharing. You can join in by creating a project in these colours and loading it to Instagram, Pinterest, or other social media sites (ensure your post is public so we can visit!) or your blog. Link your post back to the CYCI website using the linky button thingy and you’re done. Entries close in a fortnight, that’s Midday Saturday 21st January – AEDT.

Looking forward to seeing what you create.

Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
