Fly Away Cards

Today I had a blast playing with my new PTI set Fly Away. It has 2 cute airplanes plus a banner they can tow and some sentiments that fit the banner. Here I decided not to use the banner. In a recent issue of Paper Crafts, it seemed everyone was using cloud paper. I didn't have any, so I tried making my own by stenciling. Well, I didn't like that, so I used my Cricut and the Stand and Salute cartridge, sent to me by my dear stamping buddy in Wilmington, Teresa. I used it for the clouds, sponged them in SU Bashful Blue, and stamped the sentiment from PTI's Everyday Button Bits on the bottom cloud--it fit perfectly! The plane is stamped in PTI's Pure Poppy. Card Base is GKD, layer is Bashful Blue textured, brads are SU. I absolutely LOVE how this turned out!





This next card is much the same, but has a completely different look. I used the Stand and Salute cartridge to cut out the camouflage elements in Soft Suede, Always Artichoke, and Old Olive and mounted them on River Rock. I stamped the plane in Palette Burnt Umber and colored it with SU markers, cut it out, mounted on foam tape on RR and AA. Added red star brads from HL. Sentiment is from Father Knows Best by PTI. Hope you've enjoyed these two cards. I had so much fun making them! I think I will be using this camo BG for lots of masc. cards from now on! Thanks for stopping by! Happy stamping.
