{YNS Fun Friday}

YNSFFApril6-2

     Hello Friends and welcome to another fabulous Fun Friday with Your Next Stamp! My card today features an adorable stamp set designed by the very talented Jenny Suchin especially for YNS named "Up Up and Away". Now a few weeks ago you might remember this card that I created using a similar set "Basket Animals". Well, I loved the design and thought I would use it again! This time I stamped and heat embossed the clouds using white embossing powder. It is kind of hard to see but the blue sky background is shimmer paper. It looks beautiful in person! I colored the balloon using pigment ink, Stampin Up ink and a blender pen. Another extra touch I added is hand stitching. The little patch on the balloon, and basket have stamped stitches. I thought it would be cute to add "real" stitching and it turned out so cute! That leads me to my Fun Friday Tip:

   Adding hand stitching to your projects is a great way to add dimension, especially if you already have the stitching outlined for you!

   I hope that you will visit the other YNS Design Team Fun Friday projects today!

I am happy to be playing along with this weeks Color Q challenge:
