Stamp Review Crew: Celebrate Today Edition

Welcome to the first hop of February for the Stamp Review Crew. I hope you enjoyed the last hop were we had a bit of a Valentine's Day free for all and got some ideas for your loved ones. 

We are now back to showcasing a single stamp set and this hop is using the fabulous and most gorgeous set Celebrate today which also has co-ordinating Framelits! Loving the Stampin' Up! co-ordination! They do it so very well!

If you are following round on the hop, I'm #2 on the hop. You may have joined me from the fantastic Kerry Willard Bray. Hasn't she got some great ideas! If you get lost on the hop click on the banner at the top of this post and this will give you the list of all the 'hoppers' in The Stamp Review Crew.

Here is the card that I made using the Celebrate Today Stamp Set.

I wanted to make it look like the balloon was floating off into the sky. So I sponged the 'sky' with Soft Sky and the 'grass' with Pear Pizzazz to create the scene. The flowers come from the Sheltering Tree stamp set and the just finish of the 'grass' so nicely. Makes it look like a spring meadow.

To sponge the clouds punch out 3 of the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle out of thicker cardstock or the cardboard that comes in the DSP packs. Adhere the 3 of them together so they are slightly overlapping each other and then use a Stamping Sponge to sponge the edges of the scallops. Make sure that you move the scallops around to make it look a little more random.
