When I heard Stampin’ Up!’s list of most popular bundles in the 2017 Occasions Catalog, I was surprised Lift Me Up wasn’t one of them. (Or did I miss it?) When we got to play with this in November, I was immediately smitten with the detailed hot air balloon die, along with the dies for the stripes. My first creation was the example in the catalog, with that beautiful ombré from Watermelon Wonder to white.
We made this simpler version in camp last month, but it’s still a WOW in my book! We cut the balloon using a piece of waxed paper between the cardstock and die on the Precision Base Plate. There’s just something about cutting waxed paper from a roll that tries my patience, so I experimented with some pre-cut squares from Amazon. Flat, convenient, and perfect! I cut the square in half for this die, so this box of 250 sheets should last me a long time!
