Sky Is The Limit part 1

This week I’m featuring cards made with the Sky Is The Limit set from Sale-A-Bration (p. 16).  You can get this fantastic set for FREE with any order of $50, but only until February 15!

One of the most frequent requests I have is for masculine cards.  While there are plenty of guys who enjoy gardening, we don’t tend to think that they’d like to receive a card with a bunch of flowers and butterflies on it, LOL!  This set is one of the best “masculine” sets I’ve seen from Stampin’ Up!, and I’ve had a blast playing around with it.


I made this card with a piece of the Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack.  I thought that it looked a bit like land and water formations from a height.  I layered it on a piece of Lost Lagoon card stock, and then on a Mossy Meadow card base.

The biplane was stamped twice – once on Very Vanilla and once on Delightful Dijon.  I cut both out, snipping away the wires on the Very Vanilla image, and keeping them on the Delightful Dijon one.  When layered, the Delightful Dijon blends into the background.

I stamped the sentiment on Very Vanilla.  I really wanted it to be on a cloud shape, and instead of totally free handing it, I punched a cloud shape on scrap card stock using the Tree Builder Punch.  I then laid it over the sentiment and traced a section in pencil, moving it around so it didn’t go over the words.  Once I cut it out I erased all pencil marks and outlined it with a Project Life Journaling Pen.  I stamped the clouds from the set on Very Vanilla and snipped them out.  All pieces were then adhered flat on the DSP panel.

​I’m not sure this card was 100% successful….but I had fun playing.  What did you play with in your craft room this weekend?
