CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #53 - Punchy

This week the CAS-ual Friday's challenge was to create a a project using punches or dies.  I chose to use dies.  I used the Up Up & Away dies from Papertrey to create a dimensional hot air balloon.  This is something that I have wanted to try for a long time.  I created an encouragement card, hope you enjoy!





All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Spring Rain, Orange Zest Bitty Dot
Stamps: Up Up & Away, Up Up & Away Additions
Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko)
Dies: Up Up & Away, Clouds 1 & 2
other: foam tape
