Lift Me Up!
Welcome, welcome …. it’s that time again. I am participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight for July. Kylie sets a theme each month and highlights Stampin’ Up! demonstrator’s blogs from around the world. The theme this month is Travel.
If you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, you too can participate! All the details are on Kylie’s blog … this is also where the gallery of projects is today. And we are looking for your votes to decide who goes through to participate in a blog hop with Kylie in July. Voting will stay open for a week.

Lift Me Up Stamp Set
I went looking for a stamp set related to travel to fit the theme for this month, and the Lift Me Up Stamp Set and the co-ordinating Up and Away Thinlits Dies were the closest I could find in my stash.
This stamp set is an oldie but a goodie and I have rediscovered it in the last week or so. In the flurry of excitement of the new catalogue, I need to remember not to forget some of the less “new” products!
Flip Front Card
The layout of this card is a little bit different and is awfully hard to photograph. I call it a “Flip Front Card” but I have no idea what it is really called or even if it has a name. I guess it does now!
The front layer is on a hinge at the top of the card, created with Night of Navy Card and the edge die from the Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies. The top layer lifts to reveal a second layer on the card front, and the little blue tab is there to lift the top layer.
Diecut Peekaboo Shapes – The cloud on the front layer is diecut to reveal the white card underneath. I have also die cut clouds from the hidden layer, so that the Coastal Cabana card shows through. All elements on the second layer should be positioned so that they don’t show through the diecut on the top layer!
Gold Embossing – The hot air balloon image has been Gold Embossed and coloured with Stampin’ Blends (Pool Party Dark and Bermuda Bay Light).
That Background Paper – comes from the Twinkle Twinkle designer series paper.
Customised greetings – Stampin’ Up! have a number of stamp sets which have individual letters suitable for creating your own unique greeting. Here I have used the Labeller Alphabet to create the Bon Voyage on the front of the card.
The “Have a Fabulous Holiday” comes from the Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set. Another great set to mix and match words to make a customised greeting.
The base card is Coastal Cabana and is top folding. I know the Coastal Cabana clouds on the second layer are not very realistic … but hey … who needs realistic when you have Whimsy!
