Soaring by...

to say Hi!  Hello everyone.  Well it looks like a very gloomy day ahead with rain.  A great day to be doing some stamping don't you think?

My card today is using a Papertrey Ink set called - Everyday Button Bits.  There are so many pieces to this set to make a variety of images.  You just add a 'button' to finish off your image. 

I first made my frame by using spellbinders square dies. I then cut another piece to fit almost the same size, as the opening of the frame, then sponged some clouds using SU soft sky. I then stamped the basket part of the hot air balloons where I wanted them, then added the buttons. For the rolling hills I used some green card stock and MFT stitched snow drift die. 

I used some foam tape to raise the frame then added some punch flowers in the corner. For the embossed background I used my scor-buddy  - first score on a diagonal every 1/2" across, then turn to the next corner and score again across the page. (I hope I explained that correctly?).

stamps: PTI - everyday button bits 
paper: cougar white, bazzill green, scraps of light pink and green 
ink: SU soft sky, versafine black 
dies: spellbinder square dies, MFT stitched snow drifts
misc: buttons, martha stewart hydrangea punch,  scor-buddy

Thanks for your visit today.



  1. Hi Pauline,

    Simple but soooo beautiful. It covers all age ranges too. Thank you for sharing.

    Much love,

  2. I love how fresh and sweet and sunny this is! It's a real eye catcher for me as I'm loving this style lately. All the white on white is awesome, the frame looks fabulous popped up on the scored background. I keep staying on the fence about getting some rolling hills dies, but I think you've convinced me. Those dainty little flowers in the corner are the perfect finish. Gosh, I love it when you stamp! I'm a day late, but I was off the computer all of yesterday. Have a good week!

  3. Those buttons make the cutest balloons. I really like that you added the heart shaped one in. Too cute. Love the scored background too. Such a great look but I never think to do it. Hugs!

  4. What a fun card with those little buttons. I was going to say I love the back ground embossing folder and then read that you did it with the score clever!
