CTMH NEW PRODUCT Blog Hop - {Thinking of You}

Hello! If you don't already know the NEW Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book is now LIVE here!

Ok, I've been MIA for awhile, sorry for that!  But, I am excited today to be participating in the CTMH New Product Blog Hop. All of the projects featured in this hop are to showcase new products from the fabulous Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book.  Welcome and enjoy!

I simple {heart} all the paper collections this time around! Yet, I absolutely LOVE the colours of Balloon Ride.  It features Cashmere, Colonial White, Creme Brulee, Crystal Blue, Juniper, Saddle, Sky and Sorbet. Isn't it beautiful?

And, here's a {Thinking of You} card I made for a friend. 

First, I stamped the hot air balloon image from the Lifting Spirits stamp set on a piece of Balloon Ride patterned paper.  I knew I wanted to paper pierce it so I stamped it again on the flip side of the same patterned paper and on a piece of Outdoor Denim cardstock.  I then fussy cut the Envelope (top) and the Basket (bottom).  I mounted it on a piece of Sunset cardstock.  I love how cute the cloud images are from this set so I stamped them too and cut them out.  I then grabbed the One-Way Borders stamp set and used one of the arrow images to stamp on a strip of Whisper cardstock.  It came together pretty easy with some more pattern paper to match along with Outdoor Denim and Slate Grey cardstock.  The sentiment is also from the Lifting Spirits stamp set and it's stamped with Outdoor Denim ink.
