Up, Up and Away!

This week's CASology cue card had me stumped...


Of or from outside the earth or its atmosphere.
A hypothetical or fictional being from outer space, esp. an intelligent one.

I had no alien themed stamps or papers, and I saw that some of the Design Team had done cards relating to the weather and sky. I had a think and came up with the idea of using hot air balloons. I also tried to follow the CAS rule of three with three balloons and three elements on the card- stamps, paper and ribbon.


I also added a touch of glitter to the balloon baskets as well as in the middle of the letter "o" as glitter always reminds me of stars!

The end result is this girly birthday card with both muted and colourful accents and a touch of bling.

Supplies used:
Creative Memories: White cardstock.
Stampin' Up: Up Up and Away stamp set, Basic Grey ink, Pink Pirouette ink, Island Indigo ruffled ribbon, Dazzling Details, Glue Dots.
K and Company: 12 x12 Urban Rhapsody Candy Stripe paper.


  1. Clever take on the cue card this week! Great layout! So glad you joined in on the fun at CASology this week!

  2. This is really fun! I love the strip of colour down the side and a hot air balloon is definitely out of this world! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!

  3. Good for you, taking the initiative to even look up the definition of the cue! I love to see how everyone thinks, especially when it is outside the box! These beautiful balloons are definitely up in the the soft colors and the pretty paper on the side! Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!

  4. Great take on the cue word and I love the striped pattern paper you used! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
