Hooray for Friday! Do you have any plans for the weekend? My husband is taking the kids to Maine for the weekend to go boating with my father-in-law, so I'm planning to do a few painting projects around the house. I'm looking forward to checking some things off of my to-do list!
If crafting is in your weekend plans, I hope you'll join in the latest challenge at CAS-ual Fridays! It's the first challenge of the month, and that means our winner will be a future Guest Designer and win a gift certificate from Simon Says Stamp. Yippee!
This week's challenge theme: create a clean and simple project featuring something you'd find in the sky.
The first thing I thought of for this challenge was clouds, so I die cut two clouds from a debossed piece of white cardstock, then laid the negative piece onto a blue card base.
Then I got stuck. I wasn't sure what to do next, so I just started flipping through my stamp sets until I came to PTI's Postmarks and noticed the Air Mail stamp. I thought it would be fun to use in a sky scene, so I stamped it in red inside one of the clouds.
I added the "urgent" stamp to the smaller cloud, then used some dots from Harvest Berries to add darker blue accents.
The air mail strip and sentiment were stamped on a double ended banner, which I trimmed and popped up with foam dots.
