ink and inspirations Trendy Thursday: Clouds with Stampin' Up! I {Heart} Hearts

For my Thursday format, I am going to TRY and keep up with some of the latest trends in paper crafting.  Today's card features puffy, white clouds that I have been seeing everywhere!

I drew some freehanded clouds onto some old transparencies and cut them all out. (Thanks to Andrea Walford for that tip and the inspiration for this card!)

I used Dotto Adhesive (103305) to temporarily hold these in place on my Whisper White card stock(100730).  Using a Stampin' Sponge (101610), I applied the beautiful new Marina Mist Classic ink(119668) over the transparent clouds and all over the Whisper White cardstock.  Afterward, I just lifted off the transparencies and there were my puffy white clouds in a pretty blue sky.  I outlined each one with my 2 way Glue Pen (100425) and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds(102023).---I saved my transparency clouds to use for another time!  Fun stuff!

Other products used here:

Stamps:I {Heart} Hearts 117010-wood, 118571-clear), Curvy Verses (119669)

Have a great day!---Lisa :)
