I have a sneak peek for you all.... check out the new, not yet released CTMH Lifting Spirits Stamp Set in action. It's from the new Holiday Gift Guide. Products from this catalog will be available to order starting October 15th on my website.

Pretty cute, right? It was fairly simple to make just required some cutting which I don't do too often since I'm spoiled by my Cricut and our awesome Close To My Heart Stamp Sets that coordinate with it perfectly. ;)

To make this card you'll want to start with a white card base, then cut a white piece of cardstock just 1/2" smaller than your base so you have 1/4" all around. Now stamp the hot air balloon, clouds, banner and little hearts on another piece of white cardstock with CTMH Black Ink, color in your balloon (I used CTMH cotton candy, CTMH honey & CTMH sky and a brown copics marker) and color your little hearts then cut them all out. I recommend using the CTMH micro tip scissors. They work really well at getting in those tiny areas. When adding the sentiment on to your banner be sure to arch it a bit to go the same angle as your banner. :)

Now grab that white piece of cardstock you had cut, a CTMH sky ink pad and a sponge dauber.... dip your sponge dauber in the ink and carefully ink up the top portion of the cardstock to create the sky. I did it more heavy on the ink towards the top of the cardstock and lighter about half way through the card. I brushed the dauber lightly across the card so you didn't see the circles from the dauber.

For the grass I cut 3 strips of CTMH Topiary cardstock (approx. 3/4", 1 1/4" & 2") and hand tore them across the top, then I took my CTMH Topiary ink pad and inked up the torn areas. I literally put the cardstock to the ink pad and inked it up rather than using daubers. Now adhere them together and to the card.

Lastly just position your balloon, clouds and banner how you'd like them and adhere. I used some CTMH 3D foam tape for the banner along the bottom, the balloon and those cute little hearts.

And TADA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
