In the clouds

Good morning!  Maybe I should use an exclamation point there since it is a Monday morning after all.  Sorry gang.  Wake up!  hahaha!  I've been itching to get this cute little plane all inky since the day I picked it up at CHA.  It's a set from Papertrey called Fly Away - how cute is this?  It's the start of the school year, which means I'll be getting a whole new round of party invites, so I thought I'd get a jump start on some little boy cards.  I downloaded another cut file for the Sihouette so can make cute fluffy clouds and I just love the shapes of these.  Here I am with another minimal layered card - I'm on a roll!  I do think I'd like to make quick and easy cards for preschoolers since the card be all mangled up the minute it is opened.  But I try not to think about that and pretend that this will be preserved in someone's scrapbook for eternity.  :D

The layout is Taylor's TESC125 and the color combo is inspired by Curtain Call 44, which uses new In Colors from Stampin' Up! that I don't have, so I had to bend the rules a bit :D   

Have a wonderful day!

recipe -
stamps: fly away (papertrey ink)
paper: tempting turquoise, so saffron, choice snow white cardstock, fly a kite (october afternoon)
ink: real red, memento tuxedo black
accessories: silhouette clouds cut file, white embroidery floss, bits of bling (creative impressions), rectangle/scallop nestabilities (spellbinders)


  1. Oh this is just adorable Karen! I should probably start on making those kind of cards too...the ones that "be all mangled up the minute it's opened," LOL! You're talking just like me now I LOVE IT!!
