Lift My Sprits Steppin It up - Blog Hop

I think the first stamp set that spoke to me from the Occasions Catalog was the Lift Me Up stamp set.   And yes...they do speak to me.  Most of the time they say..You Need ME!!!

I have seen so many beautiful creations with this stamp set, I was beginning to wonder if I could create something different than I had already seen.

Well, it might not be sooo different, but it is my creation and I love the color combo.  I don't think the picture does it justice.

Here is the first version.  I have a hard time adhering the pieces to the card knowing full well, that I am rarely satisfied with simple and will be adding more layers and extra stuff.  Just my style.

The bright colors and the pop of black would lift anyone's spirit's if they got this in the mail.

The stepped up version...  adding a few extra layers and clouds give the balloons character and makes them pop even more.

Stamps - Lift Me up
Paper - Bermuda Bay, Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Whisper White, and Carried Away DSP
Ink - Black, Peekaboo Peach
Accessories - Up and Away Thinlits, black embossing powder, Layering Oval Thinlits, dimensionals.

Hop on over to Jeannas blog to check out her wonderful creations.
