Lift Me Up

Well yesterday was certainly a crazy day, what with the launch of the new Occasions catalogue and Sale-a-bration and all...whew!
Today I have a project I designed for my upcoming All About Birthdays Card Buffet. It is a masculine card that uses a new bundle from the Occasions catty...

I know many people struggle to create masculine cards, but I love them! I like getting all grungy and playing with layers and texture. Here I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and then added texture with the Timeless Textures stamp set. I used Crumb Cake ink, both full-strength and stamped off to create depth. The balloon images are from the Lift Me Up stamp set. I stamped them in Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler ink.
Then I took my Versamark pad directly to the edges of the stamped panel. I sprinkled the inked edges with copper embossing powder and heat set the powder...I love the effect it creates. I also added some stamped spatters in copper as well. The images behind the sentiment are stamped and then die-cut using the coodination Up and Away Framelits...this is such an awesome bundle! The sentiment is also from the Lift Me Up stamp set. I stamped it in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla card stock. I added seme Night of Navy solid baker's twine and some linen thread behind the sentiment.

On the inside I added a Very Vanilla panel on which I stamped the smaller balloon in Night of Navy ink (stamped off twice) and the clouds and sentiment in Crumb Cake.

This bundle is quickly becoming a favourite of mine! I have so many more ideas...I just need more time to create!
