Dare To Dream Adventure Cards

What a perfect pair of cards to go with today's blog post!  Being part of the Stampin' Up! family since 2003 has been an amazing adventure for me!  If you're enthusiastic about stamping, I know that you'll love being a part of it, too!  There is nothing to lose and oh so much to gain!  Case in point…

I Stamped My Way To Alaska
I Did It!  I'm Going To Alaska!  Late last week, I put in an order that gave me enough points to qualify for the 2018 Grand Vacation to Alaska!  I'll enjoy a 7-day, all-expense-paid cruise along with my husband!  I can't wait to travel with top demonstrators and their families and be spoiled by Stampin' Up!  In 2019, I'll be working to earn the vacation is the Greek Isles and YOU could join me!
I never dreamed that I would be capable of earning trips doing what I love, and now I've earned my third one!  I promise that if I can do it, you can definitely do it, too!  I can help you do it!  DARE TO DREAM of an amazing stamping ADVENTURE!
OK, back to today's projects…
Dare To Dream Balloon trio - dream
Background Basics—I stamped the words "live your" and "dream" from the Dare to Dream host stamp set randomly in Soft Sky ink all over a 4" x 5-1/4" Soft Sky background.

Before adhering the background layer to the Island Indigo card base, I tied on some Lemon Lime Twist Ombré Ribbon.  I LOVE this ribbon so much…very soft and easy to tie…not to mention pretty!

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the "dream" image in Memento Black ink on the lower left corner of a 4" x 2-3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  Next, I stamped the "dare to" phrase above it in Island Indigo ink. 

Hot Air Balloons—I stamped the balloon image in Memento Black ink onto the Whisper White layer three times positioned in a triangle shape.  I stamped the same balloon onto scraps of Island Indigo, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist card stock.  After hand-cutting the colorful balloons with my super-sharp Paper Snips, I popped them up right over the top of the background layer.  It's OK to cut right on the outline for this one.  The cut doesn't have to be perfect for this paper piecing technique, because it will line up, and errors will be filled in by, the underlying image.  Cool! 

Finishing Touches—I added some clouds floating around the balloons in Soft Sky ink, then mounted the layer onto a 4" x 2-7/8" piece of Basic Black and adhered it to the card front.  I finished by adding a few floating Rhinestone Jewels for some soaring sparkle!

Two Cool—The second card is horizontal and I used the "let the adventure begin" stamps for the background. 
  Dare To Dream Balloon trio - adventure 2
The Whisper White layer is 5-1/4" x 2-1/4" and mounted on a 5-1/4" x 2-3/8" Basic Black.  The main sentiment uses "Every Day is An" in Island Indigo ink.
