Hello Stampin friends, Today over at The Paper Players, Anne Marie is our sweet hostess and she has selected Masculine for our CAS week. I struggle with both Masculine cards and Clean and Simple cards, so this one I had to give some serious thought to. I was staring up at my old SU stamps that are all lined up above my head over my work space and I spotted this great set called Lift Me Up. I thought the hot Air Balloons would be perfect. Plus they have long been neglected.
Card Details: First I made my background with some torn copy paper, a circle stencil and some Oxide inks. I am sure you are not surprised! LOL I decided the sky needed some clouds so I pulled out my favorite ones from MFT. I love that they have an outline to them. The sentiment is from the same set as the Balloons-Lift Me Up. Long retired I am sure.

Take care and happy stamping, Nanc’

What an amazing sky you have created, Nancy! I need to fly down to your house for a lesson on how to do all of the fabulous things you do with oxide inks! I love the two different styles of clouds. Lift Me Up is one of my favorite sets, and it worked so well on this masculine card. Have a wonderful week!

Your sky background is AMAZING! So cool! You have that blending technique down perfectly! I’ll have to give that a try! The balloons look great too!

Nancy, I love that stunning background! Rainbow colors always make me happy – especially when surrounded by so much wonderful white space. The white really allows that focal point to shine! Fabulous card
