Up, Up and Away with Mojo Monday

So I have now, for the first time, bought used PTI stamps. I was actually looking to sell some duplicates I had and after many attempts on Kajiji and Facebook, I finally got my brain to work and posted it on the Sale/Trade area on the PTI forums. Well after I quickly sold most of my stamps, I started perusing the board for items for sale, when I stumbled on a stamp set that coordinated with some dies I already had.

I had gotten the Cloud dies in my last order, but had not even realized that there was a stamp set that went with them.

Today I bring you my first card from the new (to me) Up, Up & Away set. I have also been trying to get involved in more challenges, they push me to try different things and they give me a deadline so I make time for my card making. So today we are doing Mojo Mondays most recent challenge.

I spent some time (and a few attempts) at the framed area. Trying to get all the colors and bits to fit together, I am now wishing I had been a bit bolder on the text stamp in the upper right corner, you can see it much better in person.

Here is a close up.

I made another card today with the same set, but I have to photograph it before I can post it. I am hoping that with the help of my husband, who is a great photographer and teaches at CPLC, we will build a mini studio with better lighting for taking pictures.

Thanks so much for stopping by and if you haven’t already check out the forums.
