Away We Go!


And it's a long weekend in Canada, so we get an extra day to relax and hang out! Yay!! :-)

I have a card to share that is on the Deasy Designs blog today that I created using the Aero Boy stamp set. This is one of my favourite stamp sets - there are so many fun things you can do with the images in this set! :-)

I decided the change up the stamps a bit and use one of the adorable little birds with the parachute instead of the boy that comes with it.

Away We Go


I just stamped the parachute and the bird images, coloured them and cut them out. Once I knew where I wanted to place them, I used a marker to draw in the lines of the parachute strings so they would all go behind the bird. And then I just adhered the parachute and the bird over my drawn lines.

I also decided to leave this as a shaped card, rather than mount my diecut piece onto a standard card base. It gives it a fun look and because it's smaller than a standard size card, it allowed me to leave the sun image hanging off the side.

One final touch on the card, was a little bit of glossy accents on the birds goggles. It gives them a shiny dimensional look that just adds a little fun to the card. :-)

And one more thing before we head off into the weekend...

Join us tomorrow, Saturday August 4/12, for a Deasy Designs 'Our Heroes' blog hop!!
It will start on the Deasy Designs blog at 10am EST.
The design team will be sharing cards that show how this set can be used for more than just military themed cards - and they have some great ideas!!
And there will be a chance for you to win your own 'Our Heroes' stamp set!!

Hoping everyone has a great weekend!! :-)
