Soaring by to say Hi

It's Tic Tac Toe time over at The House That Stamps Built. Choose three items (across, down, or diagonally) to include on your creation, then come by the blog and link it up! I chose Sponging, Eyelets, and Summer Fun.

To create my card I:
  • Stamped the 5015-P, Postcard stamp in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink (Ranger) on a brown piece of card stock
  •  Embossed a piece of teal card stock with the Kitchen Weave Embossing folder from Cuttlebug
    • Lightly inked up the raised embossing with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink (Ranger) 
  • Added a strip of polka dot designer paper (K & Company) across the middle
  • Cut a piece of kraft card stock with the Scallop Square Nestabilities (Spellbinders) 
    • cut a square from the middle to create a frame
  • Cut a tag with Scallop Tags #2 Sizzix die
    • inked the edges with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink (Ranger) 
    • Added a white eyelet and burlap string bow
  • Die cut a doily using the Hello Doily die set from Sizzix
    • cut the doily in 1/2 and added it to the bottom of my tag
  • Stamped 9113-K, Hot Air Balloon in Versamark Watermark ink, added copper embossing powder, and heat set
    • Painted my balloon with watered down Twisted Citron/Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink (Ranger)
    • fussy cut and popped up off my card with mounting tape
  • Stamped 9104-G, Soaring by to say Hi in Walnut Stain Distress Oxide
    • fussy cut and popped up off my card with mounting tape
