Stampin’ Up! Up, Up & Away!

  • Stampin up rubber stamps up up away balloon simply scored top note die big shot

I'm never one to be shy on color and didn't blink an eye at the thought of combining Pool Party, Peach Parfait and Basic Black together.  Very retro and splashy!  This thank you card is destined for my father-in-law, who still insists on sending me money for "a little something" on my birthday (last week).  So sweet!

  • The bold Pool Party button from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog blends into the curve of the Top Note die cut.  Can you believe the Holiday Mini Catalog is winding down soon (ends Jan. 3)? 
  • A touch of scoring (Stampin' Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool) gives the Peach Parfait card stock a rich finish.

  • The Up, Up & Away stamp set works wonders for many occasions.  It's easy to snip out the balloon with Paper Snips and pop it "up, up" on a couple Stampin' Dimensionals.
