Today's post is part of the Pootler's birthday blog hop - Pootler's with birthday's in January have made up this blog hop.
This stamp set and dies is in the Sprng/Summer catalogue. The stamp set is called Lift Me Up and the coresponding dies are Up & Away (available as a bundle with 10% discount).
Sometimes you buy a stamp set because you think you'll like it but then find it hard to work with, sometimes you buy a stamp set because although you didn't initially like it you have seen some great cards made by other people with it.
But, with Lift Me Up I knew I'd love it as soon as I saw it in the catalogue, and I haven't been disappointed.
For this card I've used the balloon and cloud dies and layered them onto some paper from the Serene Scenery DSP which goes so well.
Then I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set directly onto the paper - holding my breathe as I did so in case I smudged it:
I know I'll be making lots more cards with this set, I hope you like it too.
I made the other card in the photo above using different paper from the same DSP?
Please take some time to hop around some of the other birthday blogs!
