Last week’s edition of our papercrafting challenge,
Magazine Mondays – Week 67,
inspired another fun bunch of papercrafting entries!

For those who may have missed our last challenge post,
Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays – Week 67,
here’s a quick look at the inspiration piece:

Let’s see what our papercrafters came up with this week…

Week 67 Submission by Jean M.

Jean created a wonderful art journal page inspired by her daughter’s recent wedding.

She was inspired by the large graphic in the center of our inspiration piece and the many colors.

I love this page and I’m sure her daughter and new son-in-law will too!

Be sure to stop by Jean’s blog to see her other art journal pages and projects.

Week 67 Submission by Karen L.

Karen created a card that would be perfect for someone going on a trip, or moving or embarking on a new life chapter.

She included only a few colors which really makes each item stand out.

I love the touches of red (the twine and the stamped sentiment “Adventure“) and I love the way she added “Adventure” vertically.

Be sure to stop by Karen’s Flickr stream to see her other card creations.

Week 67 Submission by Jennie G.

Jennie created a wedding card for her girlfriend’s daughter.

She kept it very “classic,” limiting the colors and using a vintage romance image.

I love the three banners she added behind the image of the man and woman – they really make that image pop off the background.

Be sure to stop by Jennie’s blog to see what else she likes to create.

Sandy created a super cute Halloween card for her nieces.

She was inspired by the colors in our inspiration piece.

You have to check out the “secret” to this card – I’m sure it will delight her nieces!

Be sure to stop by Sandy’s blog to see the inside of the card and to check out the link to the tutorial so you can make one too!

Week 67 Submission by Rebecca D.

Rebecca created a great scrapbook layout about a guy’s weekend.

She was inspired by the “getaway” theme, and the nature elements, in our inspiration piece.

I love that Rebecca left the journaling card blank so her Grandpa could share his thoughts about the weekend in the layout photo.

It’s important to involve our loved ones in capturing the memories, especially when we weren’t at the event in question!

Be sure to stop by Rebecca’s blog to hear all about how she created the background (and how her original idea led to this project!).

Week 67 Submission by JPSCRAPS

JPSCRAPS created a lovely card that could be used for any type of celebration.

She was inspired by the round image in the center of our inspiration piece and the colors.

I love the colorful background she created and the way the white, decorative circle really stands out against it!

Be sure to stop by JPSCRAPS’ blog to see what else she likes creating.

Week 67 Submission by Suzi M.

Suzi created a bright and cheery thank-you card.

She was inspired by the banner across the center of the page, and the pops of color, from our inspiration piece.

I love that she “borrowed” an idea from another crafter and that this card will be one of several she’s giving as a gift set.

Be sure to stop by Suzi’s blog to learn more about her and what she likes to create.

Week 67 Submission by Beverly J.

Beverly created a super cute mini album for her son.

She used a larger-than-normal deck of cards inspired by the 52  in our inspiration piece.

I love the idea of sharing random photos in a bound “book” such as this and I’m sure her son will appreciate having the photos and stories from his mom.

Be sure to stop by Beverly’s blog to see how she made this mini album.

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays – Week 68 Inspiration Piece

What do you think of our newest magazine inspiration piece?

This week’s magazine cover/layout offers:

First up is a layout including a photo of my step-daughter and her husband riding the sky ride at the Iowa State Fair just over a year ago.

I took this photo from the gondola in front of them and it has special meaning for them because this family trip to the fair took place just after they told the whole family they were expecting!

Next, I’ll share a mobile I made for the cute little baby girl the two mentioned above had earlier this year.

I hope it brings her lots of enjoyment when she sees it in her new room!


Both of today’s papercrafting projects were made using the Hot Air Balloon stamp set and the Lift Your Spirits stamp set, and the matching Hot Air Balloon die set.

Let’s take a look at these wonderful, coordinating products:

They’re ‘uplifting,’ right?

Come on, you know you think so too!


Project #1

The first project I worked on was the layout (which I later framed) for my step-daughter and son-in-law.

When I first saw the balloons stamps and dies, I knew they would be perfect paired with a piece of hot-air balloon tissue I had in my gift-wrapping stash.

But which photo to use? And, how could I use the delicate tissue as a background?

After reading the “Love is in the air” sentiment in the Lift Your Spirits stamp set, I knew exactly which photo I wanted to use – one of two young lovebirds in the air!


As for the tissue paper, I thought I would experiment with attaching the tissue to a piece of white cardstock, making it more sturdy and capable of having the photo, balloons and sentiment attached to it.

I did a little research on Pinterest and YouTube and found a few tutorials for adhering napkins and tissue to other materials.

This tutorial on adhering napkins is the one I chose as my inspiration.


Here are the steps I took to transfer the balloons wrapping tissue to the cardstock:

Step one: Assemble supplies – 12×12 sheet of cardstock, tissue paper, scissors, plastic wrap, iron, ironing board, ironing cloth or kitchen towel.

Papercrafting with Dare 2B Artzy Stamps & Dies - Hot Air Balloon Project Supplies - Tissue Transfer (image)

Step two: Cut a piece of tissue just a bit larger than the 12×12 piece of cardstock. Cut/tear a piece of plastic wrap a bit larger than the cut tissue.

Step three: Place the towel on the ironing board (to protect it in case any plastic wrap gets melted off the edge of the tissue and cardstock), then lay down the cardstock, followed by the cut piece of plastic wrap and then the cut piece of tissue.

Step four: Set the iron on cotton and wait for it to heat up (make sure the steam is NOT turned on and there’s no water in the iron that could spill out and ruin the paper items!).

Step five: Place the iron on the tissue and iron it to the plastic wrap and cardstock, making sure to move the iron around so it smooths any creases in the tissue, and more importantly, doesn’t burn it. You need to get heat to all areas of the plastic wrap underneath so it melts and adheres the tissue to the cardstock. Periodically check the edges of the tissue along the paper edges to ensure they’re adhering.

Step six: Once the tissue is fully adhered to the plastic wrap and cardstock, flip the newly adhered stack over and trim off any excess plastic wrap and tissue.

The next part of the project involved stamping, coloring and die-cutting the hot air balloons I would use to embellish the page.

I started by stamping the largest balloons from the Hot Air Balloon and Lift Your Spirits stamp sets on white cardstock.

I used black Ranger Archival Ink since I knew I wanted to color the stamped images and I didn’t want to have to worry about the stamped image bleeding.

I then colored the stamped balloon images, using a few of my Copic Sketch Markers, in colors that would coordinate with the balloon paper I just created. (I ended up stamping and coloring many more images than I would use for this project, but they won’t go to waste – they’ll come in handy for cards or gift tags in the future!)

Tip: When stamping and coloring images for a project, make a few extra to keep on hand for future use!


Next, after letting the stamped and colored balloons thoroughly dry, I applied a coat of Glossy Accents to each one to make it stand out a bit from the “flat” balloon paper.

Tip: It’s important that your colors (inks, markers, etc.) are dry before you apply the Glossy Accents so the ink colors don’t bleed.


And finally, I die-cut each of the stamped, colored and glossed balloons using the Hot Air Balloon die set and my Cuttlebug (Cindy has included the platform “sandwich recipe” on the back of each die set to make this process easy-peasy - clever!).

Papercrafting with Dare 2B Artzy Stamps & Dies - Hot Air Balloon Project - Die-Cutting the Balloons (image)

I then laid the picture I wanted to use on the background paper and decided where it would be adhered before trying each of the colored balloons in various positions.

Papercrafting with Dare 2B Artzy Stamps & Dies - Hot Air Balloon Project - Positioning the Photo & Balloons (image)

Papercrafting with Dare 2B Artzy Stamps & Dies – Hot Air Balloon Project – Positioning the Photo & Balloons

What you see above is the final positioning of the photo and the chosen die-cut balloons (from left to right the created balloons are: blue and green; yellow and orange; and, black and grey, all of which are color combinations found in my tissue background). The photo and balloons were adhered using foam tape so they pop up off the background and provide a little dimension to the otherwise flat piece.


But, the page didn’t feel complete – it needed clouds!

So, I stamped, colored, glossed and die-cut clouds using the cloud die in the Hot Air Balloons die set, followed by trying the clouds out in several different positions before settling on the final positioning. The clouds placed under the balloons were adhered with Ranger Glossy Accents; the one cloud that’s not tucked under a balloon was attached with foam tape.

And now, it was time for the sentiment.

I grabbed a scrap piece of white cardstock (a small strip) and stamped the “Love is in the air” sentiment across it.

Papercrafting with Dare 2B Artzy Stamps & Dies – Hot Air Balloon Project – Stamping the Sentiment

Tip: If you are stamping onto a small strip of cardstock or patterned paper and you want to make sure your alignment is correct, you can adhere your clear sentiment to a clear ruler (such as this Tim Holtz Design Ruler) to make the positioning easier (this is really handy if you are using a one-of-a-kind paper!).

I then used scissors to cut a “v” in one end of the stamped cardstock (to create a banner look) and rounded the corners of the other end of the strip, and adhered the completed ‘banner’ over the edge of the photo, using two-sided foam tape for a little extra lift.

Tip: Another way to create a banner strip is to slide a rectangular piece of cardstock into a square punch, with the short end of the cardstock strip positioned across a corner of the punch square (see image below) – press down on the punch and a ‘v’ will be cut from your strip. Repeat to create a double-ended banner.

I slipped the whole finished page into a simple 12×12 frame and voila, a home decor gift I know the couple will love!

Now, before we move on to the next project, if you want to see the super-simple stamping and die-cutting process I shared previously, be sure to check out 
this Dare 2B Artzy post.

It just couldn’t be easier to use these stamps and dies!


Project #2

The second project I created, a mobile for our new granddaughter, was a bit more time-consuming, but just as easy to create.

I started by selecting a variety of pink scraps from my scrap file (yes, it’s huge!).

I then set about stamping large and small balloons, and clouds, on the pink cardstock scraps using a variety of coordinating pigment inks, and then embossing each stamped image.

Note: I chose to stamp and emboss four of each design so that I could score them down the middle, align their backs and create dimensional balloons that would look good from any side. And, you could create more ‘sides’ if you want even more dimension.

I repeated the stamping and embossing process until I had a total of 20 large balloons, 20 small balloons and 20 clouds, enough ‘sides’ to create five large dimensional balloons and five small dimensional balloons, and what I thought would be five dimensional clouds (more on that shortly).


I then die-cut each stamped and embossed balloon, followed by scoring each one down the middle (on the back side so the scoring tool wouldn’t get caught on the embossing) using my Scor-Pal (you could do this with a ruler and bone folder or scoring tool, but I find using the Scor-Pal just makes the process easier, more precise and quicker).

I had planned to follow this same process with the clouds, but realized they couldn’t be aligned back-to-front like the balloons because the two sides/ends of the clouds are different (see below), meaning when you place them back-to-back you’ll see the backside of the other cloud. Lesson learned!

Tip: To create a multi-sided, dimensional object in the manner I described above, the shape must be the same on both sides of the score line so you can line them up back-to-back and not see anything sticking out.

I set the clouds aside, hoping to still be able to use them once the balloons were in place.


I then collated each “set” of balloons and set them aside.

I took the first of four of the same balloon design and applied double-sided adhesive to its back.

Next, I lined up the back of the second one of that design with the back of the first of that design and pressed them together. This process was then repeated with the third and fourth of that design. Balloon number one was now assembled.

I repeated this process for each of the other four large balloons and for all five of the small balloons. I now had all 10 balloons assembled and the clouds laid out with each set of balloons. I also stamped two sentiments on rectangular pieces of cardstock and inked the edges – one of these was added to the mobile (see the finished project photo for where this ended up).

Then, after a run to our local craft supply store for the supplies needed to create a mobile frame – clear jewelry cording (a.k.a. fishing line), pink pipe cleaners and treat sticks (found in the baking and candy-making aisle) – I set about figuring out the best way to make a frame that was strong enough to hold up to handling, yet delicate enough to not overpower the balloons and clouds that would soon be hanging from its arms.

Papercrafting Home Decor Gift Created With Dare 2B Artzy Stamps & Dies – Supplies for the Mobile Frame: Clear Jewelry Cording, Pink Pipe Cleaners & White Lollipop Sticks

The first step was to “lock” the two arms in place across each other, with one placed on top of the other. This was accomplished by laying one stick on top of the other and wrapping them with a rubber band first, then with clear cording around the center, first in one direction and then in the other, tightly. The goal was to tie the sticks to each other and keep them from “aligning” in the same direction. It worked!

Then, I needed to cover the sticks – for this I chose to use pipe cleaners, in pink!

I started by wrapping the first bare stick section (section #1) with the first pipe cleaner, starting at the first pipe cleaner’s ‘beginning’ (where the two sticks cross) end at the inner ‘end’ of the stick section #1 and working it around and around the stick until I ran out of pipe cleaner.

Then, I grabbed a second pipe cleaner and, after aligning its ‘beginning’ end with the ‘final’ end of the first pipe cleaner, I again wound it around and around the bare stick until I again ran out of pipe cleaner.

I then grabbed a third pipe cleaner and repeated the above process, aligning the ‘beginning’ of the third pipe cleaner with the ‘final’ end of the second pipe cleaner before winding it around the rest of the bare stick. I wrapped the third pipe cleaner all the way to the outer end of the stick, doubling it up at the end so there was a bit of a bump at the end (the need for this will be clear soon!). Section one of the mobile frame was now finished.

I repeated this process three more times and before I knew it, the frame was complete and ready to be adorned with the stamped, embossed and die-cut hot air balloons and clouds.

Next came attaching the balloons and clouds to the frame. 

I first poked a hole through opposite sections of each assembled balloon (i.e., I pushed my paper piercer through panels one and three, which were attached opposite each other).

I then needed to determine how I wanted the balloons to hang on the frame – I opted to stagger them rather than have them all hang at the same height/level.

I cut 10 pieces of the clear cord, all at the same length, and then threaded one of the clear cords through each of the 10 (five large and five small) balloons, tying each cord off by joining the ends of each threaded cord and making a knot.

Next, I attached the large balloons, one-by-one to the frame, staggering their heights by tying the balloon cords at varying lengths.

Tip: Having a slight “bump” at the end of each of the frame ends (the ends of the sticks), keeps the balloons hanging from the ends from easily slipping off the ends.

I then added the smaller balloons – they were tied to to the bottoms of the larger balloons.

I finally made a decision about how I would use the single-sided clouds – I attached a cloud piece to each clear cord, just above each small balloon, and backed each cloud piece with another, coordinating cloud piece, facing the same way so the backs of each aligned perfectly (see the finished project photo).

And last, but not least, I added the rectangular ‘banner’ with the  “There may be miles between us, but our hearts are side by side” sentiment on it to the bottom of one of the large balloons.


Whew, lots of steps, but so worth it!

Hopefully you agree – ta da!

Looking for more ways to use the Hot Air Balloon stamp set, and the matching Hot Air Balloon die cut set?
