Peek A Boo Card Design: Carried Away with Up & Away

I love it when a card has an element of layering that’s a little bit different from the usual.  This card with the circle window features the Carried Away Designer Series Paper as a layer UNDER the background piece of Watermelon Wonder, rather than over the background.  With the hot air balloons from the Lift Me Up stamp set, it’s a perfect way to add the busy (but pretty) paper without overpowering the design.

As I talk about in the video, I like to teach that there are 3 steps to stamping.

3 Steps to Stamping

  1. Stamp.
  2. Layer.
  3. Embellish.

That’s pretty much it.  So if I’m looking at a card that I’ve created that doesn’t seem quite ‘finished,’ then the first thing I do is review my steps.  Did I stamp?  Check.  Would an additional layer help? And finally, can I add an embellishment of some sort. 

If you’re loving my video tutorials and projects, you can request your Stamps in the Mail Club kit!  All the pieces come right to your mailbox, including the stamps and ink.  No need to worry about designing when you have a kit where the designing is done for you.  Since you’ll have the stamps and inks after you finish your projects, you can use make more of your own cards using the Club projects as inspiration!

Already have the stamps?  No problem.  When you request your kit, you can pick out a substitute product to receive instead of the Lift Me Up stamp set. Just include it on your request form and I’ll send you a custom invoice.
