Lift Me Up Birthday Card using Embossing Paste

How to use embossing paste to create a fun Hot Air Balloon birthday card using Stampin' Up! products

StampinByHannah Lift Me Up Birthday Card using Embossing Paste

 

I LOVE a bit of embossing paste as much as the next person, but I do have to admit that my pot has been a little (by this I mean a LOT) neglected over recent months…. to the point where when I opened it I thought it has completely dried out… and after I made this card I decided that it had got to the end of it’s life and that it needed to go! However… I will be re-purchasing because the effects you can create with it are fabulous!

So, using my rather dry Stampin’ Up! Embossing Paste, and the cloud mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks, did allow me to create some extra texture as the dry paste holds a shape better than when it’s really wet. It also dried a LOT quicker… not that I would recommend using dry embossing paste of course! It’s MUCH easier to spread when it’s fresh… it’s also much easier to clean off your mask and palette knife!

Because the background is so busy, I’ve kept the rest of the card simple, with a die cut balloon and sentiment from Lift Me Up! die cut using the coordinating Up and Away Thinlits.

InspirInk Blog Hop Header Stampin' Up! team blog hop

Oh dear…. I totally dropped the ball in May, I’m usually super organised when it comes to my blog, but this past month I have managed to miss several blog hops that I LOVE taking part in… and I almost missed this one too! It actually should have been last weekend, but I think we all felt May… and so it’s the first weekend of June instead!

This month’s Theme was set by the ever gorgeous Sam Roberts…. and boy did she give us a challenge!

InspireInk Blog Hop cardmaking challenge theme FunFair Carnival

I cannot WAIT to see what the other ladies have made for this one! I spent hours thinking about this theme…. so long that I missed the original deadline! But… creating bold and bright projects for my In-Colour week brought me inspiration, and this card arrived on my desk!

I haven’t taken the Lift Me Up Stamp Set off the shelf in AGES… and I had forgotten how much I love it! It has the cutest coordinating die set, Up and Away thinlits.

This card is SO bright, thanks mainly to that fun Pineapple Punch card base. The other colours on this card are; Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral and Poppy Parade.

Make It Monday | Carousel Birthday Shaker Card Video Tutorial

Make It Monday Shaker Card tutorial using Carousel Birthday from Stampin' Up!

Make It Monday

I was asked a question about this card a few weeks ago, and I realised that although this video has been on my to film list for months I hadn’t got round to filming it! I had great fun playing with the Carousel Birthday stamp set before OnStage last November, and even more fun when I realised that the ferris wheel stamp matches two of the circle dies from the Layering Circles perfectly!

I hope you enjoy the video… and do let me know if there is something else you would like to see. I love talking to you all about my creations, and would LOVE to see what you have made with this stamp set!

The Carousel Birthday stamp set coordinates with the Lift Me Up! Stamp and die bundle… particularly those cute cupcakes.

Right, that’s it from me for today, I have managed to write this blog post in the car…. and I’m starting to struggle with a touch of car sickness!

Sale-a-bration team blog hop Using Carried Away Lift me Up and Designer Tee from Stampin' Up! UK

I have been playing with the Lift Me Up! bundle for months, (its been in my inky fingers since September last year when I was asked to make samples with it for the On Stage Local event in Telford!) but I have not got tired of it yet! It coordinate perfectly with the Sale-a-bration item; Carried Away Designer Series Paper which I have used in the background. I am currently taking every possible opportunity to use my favourite colour; Mint Macaron, before it sadly retires in June (get your refills now!)

The Sentiment is from another one of the Sale-a-bration items. Designer Tee, is designed to coordinate with the Custom Tee stamp and die bundle in the Spring / Summer catalogue, but I love that the sentiments fit with heaps of other stamp sets and occasions too. Side-note; how true is that sentiment!

I hope that you have enjoyed hopping along with me today, please click on the images below to check out the other ladies blogs!

Question of the day: Which one of this years out-going In Colours are you going to miss most?

I am totally devastated to loose Mint Macaron, I have just about everything crossed that it might find its way back to us at some point…
