Stampin' Up! Lift Me Up Thank You Card

Happy Monday, Peaches!! How was your Father's Day? Mine was pretty good. The hardest part about these holidays is trying to juggle my ever growing family. I'm sure there are some of you who can relate. I always worry someone's feelings will get hurt. It would be so much easier if everyone got along and could be in the same room, but in my family's case, it just isn't so, so we do our best to accommodate multiple events to ensure everyone is honored.

In any event, it's so nice to see family. We had a delicious BBQ, with all the fixings. The kids played in the water (it's been in triple digits here in California!!!!!), and the adults enjoyed sharing stories from when we younger, reminding us of how blessed we were to have our fathers in our lives. We had such a good time, It was so hard (as it always is) to say goodbye. What a fun weekend! I even snuck in some crafting time to make today's card.

For today's card, I of course used the embossing paste (I can't help myself; I'm telling you!!!), but this time, I wanted to have a minimal presence of the Paste do I just used my Lots of Lables dies and cut out a piece of cardstock and added some paste using the cloud stencil from the stencil pack. I just love the look of the white embossing paste on the Pool Party cardstock. Then, I watercolored a piece of watercolor paper in Island Indigo and Lemon Lime Twist,  and die cut a balloon from the Lift Me Up set to create an ombré effect. I stamped my main panel a balloon from the same set and added a few embellishments. One really fun embellishment I finally got to try out for the first time was the new Glitter Acrylic Shapes. I love the dimension these cute little shapes add. It was just the perfect touch don't you think? Well, that's my card! Thanks for stopping by! See you next post!
