Introducing Up, Up & Away and Sentiments

Here we are!  The very first day of the May countdown!  This is SO incredibly exciting for me because so many of the sets this month are unique, exciting and just plain ol' inspiring!  It's been so difficult to keep everything under wraps!

Today I get the opportunity to introduce you to a new set that I designed.  Something inspired by one of the hottest trends in paper crafting right now.  Think sunshine, rainbows, clouds, kites and hot air balloons!  All of which are things that make us all smile and feel happiness & sunshine deep down in our souls!  I can't possibly think of a better theme to use when making cards for others, so we are able to pass on all that sunshine to others!

The details.

  • Up, Up & Away will be available for sale on May 15th.
  • It will retail for $24.
  • Up, Up & Away contains a total of 27 stamps (21 images and 6 sentiments).
  • There are two die sets that will be available that coordinate with this set as well. 

 All three sizes of the hot air balloons from the set in a single die for $5. 

 As well as a set of two cloud dies for $6.

We are also providing you with even more variety in an economical way with a companion sentiment set available to complement Up, Up & Away.

The details.

  • Up, Up & Away Sentiments will be available for sale on May 15th.
  • It will retail for $5.
  • Up, Up & Away Sentiments contains a total of 5 sentiment stamps.

Now that we have all of those details out of the way, let's get into the projects!

Rainbow & sunshine card
This first project is all about rainbows & sunshine!  I took my cue from the fun sentiment that is included in the $5 add-on set. 

I started with a piece of kraft cardstock and stamped it with a sun image from the set (more about that later in this post) using Versamark ink in two corners.  I then added the rainbow image with Noir Black Palette ink.  I used a few Copic markers to add color to my vibrant rainbow.  A few swipes of Fresh Snow ink finished the edges of the block.


Next, I added stamped clouds at either end of the rainbow.  The clouds are stamped in Fresh Snow ink onto Kraft cardstock and diecut with the coordinating cloud dies.  You will notice that when using the stamps with the dies, there is no border for this particular coordination.  That was actually something I chose to do when designing the dies so the clouds looked more "realistic".  When I was doing some preliminary testing, I felt a border took away from the shape and I am really happy I made that decision.

Cloud closeup
You'll notice that the clouds have a slight distressed texture to them.  This faint distressing really brings the images to a whole new level and makes stamping with them easier.  I know you'll love it once you start using these yourself!

Thanks for the Lift card 

Up, Up & Away includes many things that can be found in the sky, including kites.  This quick little project features the cheerful focal point in style!  Not to mention a fun color scheme of Berry Sorbet & Aqua Mist.

Kite image
It all started with this little kite outline image.  It can be used for coloring as is, or you can add a patterned overlay to it.

Kite stamp
Here I've added the floral overlay.  This is one of three options for the kite image! There is also a small overlay for the bows on the tail so you don't have to color at all unless you want to!

Side view 

I inked the edges of the kite focal point using Aqua Mist ink.  For the clouds, I stamped Aqua Mist cardstock with polka dots (Polka Dot Basics II) using Fresh Snow ink.  I then diecut them with the coordinating cloud dies.  Don't you just love the shape of those clouds!

Down view

The Berry Sorbet card front was stamped repeatedly with a small flower from the same set using Fresh Snow ink.  You might notice that there is a bit of texture added to the card front… more about that later in this post!  One last thing I wanted to note was the stitched frame around the focal point.  It was fun to allow the ends of each stitching line extend and crossover each other for a more fun, artistic look.

Flower thank you
I thought I would share a little something unconventional that I came up with this set as well.  The large flower adorning the front of this card is created with the balloon die and images!  Let me show you how it was done!

Die cut balloons
I started by die-cutting 5 large balloons and stamping them with the polka dotted solid balloon tops from the set using Raspberry Fizz ink.

Assembling flower
Next, I arranged and adhered all of them on my card cover until I felt they were well-balanced.  I punched a 1" circle from Orange Zest cardstock and selected a large Orange Zest Vintage Button to go along with it.

Flower side
I adhered the cardstock circle & button to the center of the flower using glue dots.  So fun, isn't it?!?!

Sunshine plate
Did you notice the background of this card?  It is impressed with one of our new Impression Plates for May, entitled Sunshine.  I love all the concentric circles and think it adds a lot to a project without being over powering.

Sunshine closeup
I added a border accent with Orange Zest stitched ribbon.  I stamped "thank you" onto a small tag and tucked it in behind the button.  Such a fun, sunshiny project!

Next, I have a completely different look to show you….

Vintage Balloon card
This card has more of a vintage soft feel, very different from the other bold & bright projects I created for this post.

Cloud dies
One of my favorite touches is the Vintage Cream felt clouds I created.  The new cloud dies cut easily through this felt and allow you to add so much texture and warmth to your projects.

Felt cloud
I adhered them in place with Scor-tape.

Earlier, I told you I would tell you a bit more about the texture found on my kite card.  And you might have noticed the texture in the photo above as well.  Here's the culprit!  The second new impression plate introduction for May, fondly referred to as Linen & Canvas.  This impression plate allows you to create your own textured cardstock when you need it.  Rather than stock up on an additional stash of textured Papertrey cardstock, you can just create your own in a matter of seconds!

I love how adding a more elegant sentiment, like this one from Masculine Motifs, brings a whole new sense of style to these balloons.  For the balloon image used on this card, I did paper piecing with Lavender Moon Bitty Dot paper. 

Balloon closeup
I added a bit of color with a Copic Marker to define the draped area of the balloon, but nothing fancy.  I swiped my Chamomile Tea Dye Duo pad around the exterior of the balloon to reinforce my vintage theme.

Sending Smiles card
Now here's some additional outline balloon images, only this time I colored them with vibrant colors using Copic markers.  It's amazing how much this project contrasts with the vintage project above, isn't it?

Colored balloons
The balloons are die cut, then stamped and colored. 


The border on this card was created with the new Eyelet Border die from Lisa Johnson.  You'll be hearing more about this throughout the week!

Here is a video that will give you a few tips for coloring these balloons with Copic Markers along with a few other techniques…

Finally, the last card I have to share today uses some of the solid balloons once again.

Sky is the Limit Card
I'm in love with this color combination… Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist & Summer Sunrise.

Notice the sun… one of my favorite images from this set!  I love the slightly distressed look and how artistic it becomes!

Flowers & dots pattern

The pattern at the bottom uses the center of the sun as a polka dot, which shows you how versatile it can be!

Here is a short video that shows you exactly how to trim the balloon diecuts along with a few other things I did for this project!

The variety of looks and styles that one can achieve with this set make it desirable to any stamper, any skill level!  After all of these samples, I hope you are as excited about this set as I am!  Here's your chance to win an amazing prize package that will allow you to recreate many of today's projects!

    In love with the balloons. I live in rural NJ and there are balloons here all the time as well as an annual balloon festival in the summer. One landed on our lawn once and the balloonists left us a bottle of champagne. The stamps really capture that graceful activity.

    Janet says:

    I love, love, love this set Nichole! I’ve been looking wistfully at other balloon stamp sets, but I’m so glad I didn’t buy any – the classic Papertrey ink style is way nicer and more versatile than any others I’ve seen. This is the most excited I’ve been about a stamp set in a while (well, since last months’ release, anyway!)

    What a fabulous first peek. It really shows how much you listen to (or how much you know) your customers. Someone on the forum requested a linen impression plate, and here it is. And some complained about having to buy 3 different flower dies sets to use for 1 stamp set, and you came up with single dies that cut multiple images. Thank you for accomodating your customers wants and needs!

    melissat says:

    Great set, great texture plates and great dies….so dangerous for my wallet! I love the kite, it’s so cheerful and I love your take on a vintage card. I am always a little intimidated by trying to achieve the vintage look (I’m all about clean straight lines!) but this card is the perfect marriage of both.

    Dude. You made me start singing. “Would you like to ride in my beautiful, my beautiful ballooooooon?” and also by The 5th Dimension, “LET THE SUNSHINE, LET THE SUNSHINE, THE SUNSHINE IN…” (Yes, you have to shout it. πŸ™‚ In fact, go ahead and wave your arms in the air too. Who cares who is watching?) Now I’m getting that funky groove on and it’s all your fault. (And YouTube’s.) This set just makes me HAPPY!

    I’ve recently been reliving the joy in rainbows with my son and a song I used to sing as a child. So fun, so magical.

    “Sending smiles across the miles” is a sentiment that I would use ALOT! We have a lot of family interstate and even more overseas. Making and sending cards is a big part of keeping us closer and more involved in special occasions like birthdays, etc.

  • 188

    This set is too cute! I love how the balloons were used for flower petals. And because I can’t make a cloud to save my life……I’m loving the dies.

    Its no surprise to me that after reading this post and watching the videos I now WANT the set.

The rainbow and clouds are of course absolutely necessary! Faboulous job.

    It’s funny, because when I first saw this set, I thought “cute, but not too useful”. But then – I saw the “The Sky’s the Limit” saying, and realized how perfect this set would be for graduations – and a great change from the usual cap and gown sets that I usually use. I have so many nieces and nephews graduation from various things in the the next few years – it’s perfect, and now I really want it! It definitely got my creative juices flowing, and now I’m thinking about all the various, creative ways I can use it.

    My first reaction – how sweet, I really like these sets. Who wouldn’t like sunshine, rainbows and puffy clouds. The kites remind me of summer evenings at the beach – we always flew kites then. The hot air balloons are perfect for a New Jersey gal who attends the Hot Air Balloon Festival held there each summer – a truly magical sight. The sentiments are great.
