Seize the Birthday - Travel

Hello friends and happy Thursday.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we have the "Toppings" option of Travel.  Remember it is an option and our challenge is always "anything goes" as long as it is for a birthday.

I die cut a panel with MFT Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle die and then sponged blue ink for the sky and green ink for the grass.  All the images and sentiment are from MFT Up In The Air.  This is such a cute set and this is my first time using it.  I stamped them with Memento Black Tuxedo Ink and colored them with Promarkers.  I fussy cut them and added them to the panel with foam tape.  I made a little path to the house with darker green ink.  I glued this panel to my card base and it was done.

Be sure to check out all the designer's cards at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will join us for this fun challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,


  1. Totally cute card! Such a sweet scene too!

  2. I've always thought it would be fun to travel in a hot air balloon! You've created a wonderful, colorful scene, JoAnn! Love that sweet elephant!

  3. Yes, a hot air balloon. Great idea and love your design too.

  4. I am so sad to see that all my comments aren't working this morning! I love the scene you created with this card. The way you darkened the path leading use to the house was brilliant! HUGS my dear. I have not been ignoring you!!

  5. Aww how cute!!! I didn't know that the stamp set has animals too! Great idea to use the hot air balloon for the travel theme! Love the bright colors!
