Soaring by . . .

Soaring by . . .
After Jillian was featured in Paper Creations Spring issue, we received a request for hot air balloons.  
This sweet lady sent us some of her sketches and doodles for what she was looking for.  I went into Illustrator and created this stamp set with her in mind.  We didn't use her actual artwork but used her ideas and vision for what she wanted us to create!  We loved that this customer had a request ~  you are welcome to email your requests to us too!  That was so fun!
Jillian had no problem coming up with sentiments for this set and actually we ran out of room for all of what she came up with! ~ so we have second set!
Here is my tag for today's feature of the Whimsical Journey Stamp Set
 This is a Ranger manila tag, I stamped the Balloon, sentiments and border from  Endless Borders Stamp set ~ another new AJVD set! in Black Archival Ink.  
 Endless Borders Stamp set was designed to use on a card or a page, they can be extended to any size, either by repeating the stamp or using the extra icons to extend them.
We just got the Tim Holtz Distress Markers in so thought this we perfect to try them out!  So beware, this is my first color job! {and it ins't that perfect!}
 I used numerous of my favorite colors like Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint, Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Mustard Seed, Vintage Photo for the balloon.  Then I went and inked the tag with Broken China, Faded Jeans and Worn Lipstick.  Over sprayed with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mist ~ wanted the Turquoise PP Mist but sprayer wasn't working!
The charm is from our NEW {die}lightfully Charming Circle die and stamp set is Occasionally Charming!  Cut out of a manila file folder, stamped sentiment in Black Archival and inked with Worn Lipstick and Dusty Concord.  Sprayed with Heirloom Perfect Pearls Mist and Pin it on with a AJVD Pear Pin.  Hand dyed Rinkle Ribbon for the bow.

Soar to New Heights!
Graduation Card

I love how this card turned out.  I used SVG Attic's Tent Card Collection, includes a stand for the bottom of the card so it stands on its own!  
The one stamp on the Mini Whimsical Balloons set lets you build your own balloon!!!  I used 2 inch circles for that and adhered them back to back to make it 3D.  I then had an extra layer for the front of the card so I cut it the same color and stamped it in Whisper White Craft ink from Stampin Up using our  Endless Borders  stamp set.
Then used Divine Twine to make the ropes for my balloon and topped it off with a {die}lightfully Charming Circle with the Congratulations Stamp and Graduation Hat icon in the center from Charming Occasions stamp set! and pinned it on with a AJVD Silver Pear Pin
