Soaring Away

I have been playing with the Send Me Soaring stamp set.  I do not own it but have one on loan from my sister until the end of May so thought I better get some use out of it.  This was one of the stamp sets in the Occasions Mini (sorry no longer available) and several of my customers purchased it so maybe they will try some of these.  I got the ideas for these cards from other demonstrators on the Stampin Up demonstrators website.   I also challenged myself to use only the card stock that I had in my scraps box (waiting to be sorted and put away).

 These first three were CASED (or inspired since only the first one resembles her layout)  from Brenna Anderson.  I tried to make cards that I can use for graduation or birthdays.  It's that time of year :-)

And a little variation here. 

And a little more variation here.

This one was inspired by Carol Millay.  The clouds are stamped and then cut out of Bashful Blue paper that was embossed with a retired floral impression pad.   The DSP is Nursery Nest which will retire June 1.  Get it while you can!

And a card designed by Julie Marshall inspired this one.  It was a little bit of a pain to glue down the baker's twine.  I used a little of the liquid Tombow and rubbed it on the underside of the twine in a couple spots.  That seems to be working.

There are a few more that I want to copy but that was enough today.  I also recently played with some images I received as a Wish List item from another demo.   I liked some cards I saw recently with this set and actually wound up ordering it for myself. 

The stamp set is Patterned Party and it will be around at least for another year.  When I get my set later this week I will have to post some more cards :-)  I tried some color combos from the Color Coach using Tempting Turquoise.
