MCT Guest Designer: Katie AND a Winner!

Hello, My Creative Time friends!  This is Katie, from Crafting with Katie.  While Emma is at the hospital taking care of her sweet Baby Aaron, her design team and some other special guests will be sharing some fun projects with you.  This is a card that I made for Emma, since I know she loves purple!  

I got the idea of making a cloud shaped card from my design teammie, Cathryn.  You can see her adorable card here.  I used my Gypsy to weld two of the cloud shapes together, sized at 5 1/2" width (real size), and cut out this card base in lavender cardstock.  This made the card the perfect size to fit into an A2 size envelope.  I cut the cloud again in white and stitched around the edges with my sewing machine before adhering it to the card base.

I can't get enough of the hot air balloon from Emma's Fly Away With Me stamps and dies!  To make this I first die cut it in purple cardstock.  I then stamped the coordinating image on the die cut and on brown and lavender cardstock.  I cut the lavender balloon into pieces and then stamped alternating patterns from Emma's Build a Banner Kit, using PTI's Royal Velvet ink.  After inking all of the edges, I adhered the pieces and the brown basket to the purple die-cut.

The sweet stitched clouds are also included in the Fly Away With Me die set, and the sentiment is from Fly Away With Me Sentiments.

Now, on to our winner of the June Release Blog Hop!
