Send Me Soaring

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a good weekend! Mine has been fabulous! I hosted my Occasions Catalogue/Sale-a-bration Launch and Customer Appreciation Open House yesterday and had such fun! Scroll to the bottom of this post for the winners of my Door Prize draws.

Today marks the start of a new sketch challenge from Sunday Stamps...

Here is my take on it:

Any-occasion masculine card featuring the Sky is the Limit Sale-a-braion set.
I opted for a slightly creative take on the sketch, using the mountains in the DSP to create the shaped edge on the lower section. To achieve that look I simply trimmed along one of the rows of mountains in the pattern with my paper snips. I layered that on a piece of Perfectly Artistic DSP, which is one of the limited-time Sale-a-bration items. I love the way it looks like sky with wispy white clouds. The plane is stamped in Basic Black ink on Whisper White card stock and then lightly sponged with Crumb Cake ink. I fussy-cut it out and then added the propeller, which I die-cut from vellum with the Flower Fair Framelits. I fastened the propeller to the plane using a silver mini brad.

The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black on Very Vanilla card stock. I trimmed one end into a banner, curled it slightly with my bone folder and then adhered it to the card with dimensionals. I added some silver metallic baker's twine, which I adhered to the end of the plane and the banner so that it would look like the plane was towing the banner. I matted the whole thing on Basic Black card stock before adhering it to a Sahara Sand card base.

On the inside I stamped the globe image from the Going Global stamp set in Sahara Sand ink. I stamped the heart from the same set in Basic Black ink on a scrap of leftover Perfectly Artistic DSP and then punched it with the Sweetheart punch, which fits'd think Stampin' Up! planned that ;) I adhered the punched heart over the stamped globe using dimensionals.

There are so many fun possibilities with this sketch...check out the rest of the Design Team's projects for inspiration and then be sure to give it a try and share your work with us over at Sunday Stamps.
