ATSM Challenge #72

Good morning!! We have a new challenge for you starting today over at Addicted to Stamps and More.

This week's challenge is to MAKE YOUR MARK.

That's right - get out your markers, crayons, pencils, watercolours... anything to Make your Mark.

Here is my DT card -

Ages and ages ago, I did one of those online classes which was all about die-cutting. You may remember my Partial Die Cutting card that I made? 

I was going back over the class notes and printed out the PDF's that came with the course. I saw an idea which is how I came about the side hand panel.

I have die cut with my puffy cloud's to create the aperture. Two left over clouds were popped on top.

I used a retired Stampin' Up set that I really should use more often - Up, Up and Away. I fussy cut the balloons and popped them up with dimensionals.

I have used my markers directly onto my stamps. LOVE the versatility of markers.

Now, you should pop on over to the challenge blog and give the DT some love and say hi.

See you there!

Thanks for looking xx


  1. Fabulous design Kylie ... love the use of both positive and negative dies! I have this same stamp set and embarrassed to say it is covered with a lot of dust right now. I have never been able to get it to look as good as this!! Love these fun balloons ... the colors are perfect together. Loll xx

  2. I love this set Kylie and its nice to see it again in such a fun way. Those clouds are just terrific!

  3. The cloudy sky looks so fun, what a great design. I love the stamps and colors too! xxx

  4. Beautiful layout, Kylie! I like how you've used the positive and negative cloud die cuts and those coloured balloons look fabulous. xx

  5. I do like the clouds and the balloons flying in the sky! Great use of the dies. I like to colour directly on stamps too!

  6. I love how you did the clouds, Kylie. That is such a clever idea! I must try that some time! The hot air balloons look great. That was one of my favorite stamp sets for masculine cards. Stampin' Up, why must you retire all of my favorites?! lol
