It just goes to show that you don't have to use the Perfectly preserved stamp set just for a preserving card or as a label on a jar.

A Hot Air balloon ride has been on my husbands to do list for quite a while but it hasn't happened yet. I think it would be a great experience but just having that basket floor between me and the distance back to the ground is a bit off putting.

Michelle does some amazing work and always shares her tutorials.
I loved the card so decided to have a go at it needless to say it was a hit with my Ladies. I did change a couple of things instead of using Craft White ink and Clear Embossing powder I used Versamark ink and White Embossing powder. By using the lattice Embossing folder as Michelle did it makes it look like Cross Stitch This would work with any outline flower image. If you would like to make one of these cards let me know and I will have another class for you and some friends or you can order the products used for this card through me.

I saw this card by Andi Polter and decided it would be a quick card to make i changed it up by using a few more Rhinestone Jewels and completely sponged the back of the vellum.
To make this card all you have to do is put a piece of vellum in the Snow Flurry Embossing folder and run it through the Big Shot, stamp your sentiment (on this card I have heat embossed the sentiment), sponge the back of the vellum with the same colour ink as your card base, adhere this to the card base by adding a few glue dots where they won't show, then add a few Rhinestone brads and voila you have a finished card.
Stamp set: Many Merry Messages
Ink: Bashful Blue, Versamark
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Vellum,
Other: Bigshot, Snow Flurry Embossing Folder, Basic Rhinestone Jewels,
White Embossing Powder, Glue Dots, Stamping Sponge

Fold your baby wipe in half, then in half again, add of your reinker to the fold line.
If you want a multicoloured background add more colours
For smaller stripes, add a small dot of reinker. For wider stripes, add longer stripes of reinker.
Line the inked fold up with the edge of the glossy cardstock.
Wipe the inked baby wipe over the glossy cardstock to create a striped background.
Add more color, linking up the inked wipe with the existing stripes to intensify and even out the colors. Continue to add color as needed. You can trim the edge you started at if it looks a bit patchy.
Stamp your image with Staz on ink directly onto the background.

Here are a couple of pictures from the day
This is a Christmas wreath made by and shown to us by Sophie during the demonstrations, Sophie who works for Stampin' Up! the piece hanging down in the centre uses one of the new Stampin Sound card all the flowers are cut with Stampin Up's Big Shot Dies.
I will definitely be going again next year

Fold one or two baby wipes in half then in half again.
Starting with the darkest colour reinker place a few drops onto the baby wipe, then add a few drops of the second darkest colour and lastly add a few drops of the lightest colour ( you can use as many or as few colours as you like).
You have now created a stamp pad, Ink up your image and stamp onto cardstock.
I turned the stamp slightly each time just so the flowers inked up a little differently. I also wiped the stamp before inking it up each time.
This card was cased from Monica Hornof, she has a tutorial on her blog.
Over the next couple of days I will show you another card using the baby wipe technique but in a different way.

This is the card I made for my Daughter Bex she turned 28 yesterday, gosh where do the years go. I haven't used this set before and was pleased how the card turned out, I just had to add a little bit of bling as well. When I gave Bex her card she said a "Mad Hatters card". As the cake was crooked I decided to make the Eggplant and Melon Mambo mats crooked as well. Hope your day was special Bex xxx
