Today I decided to play with another one of the fab stamp sets that you can get for FREE right now during Sale-a-bration – it is called Sky is the Limit and features a beautiful old fashioned airplane which is just perfect for creating cards & projects for the men in your life…

So here is the card that I made using it…bit of a sky theme and I managed to turn it into a card perfect for Valentine’s Day too!

Oh this was such a fun card to make – my favorite bit is that big vellum sunburst that consumes the entire card front – it is so dramatic!  All stamps used to make this card are featured in the set Sky is the Limit.

The cardstocks…are Crumb Cake and Whisper White.

The blue background…is actually a piece of DSP that is shaded pale blue with subtle white streaks & splodges – simply perfect for creating a sky background!  It is from a pack called Perfectly Artistic which is another item that you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration – find it on pg 19 of the brochure…

The sunburst…is a fantastic new die called Sunburst Thinlits that is featured on pg 25 of the Occasions Catalog – I die cut it out of Vellum Cardstock and added it to the entire front of my card – LOVE it!

The airplane and heart clouds…are stamped in Early Espresso Ink – I stamped the clouds & trail onto a 1″ wide strip of white cardstock and the airplane onto a scrap and then cut it out.  I added a brown Candy Dot to the center of the propeller.

The banner…is created using a die from Banners Framelits and stamped with that cool ‘you send me soaring’ sentiment.

The finishing touches…I added some white dots from White Perfect Accents and another hear that I colored pink and added to the edge of the banner…
