Take 3 - Week of June 13 part 1

Hello everyone.  Some of you might have read my blog post HERE where I talk about Susan R's idea of making multiple cards from the same image.  I love the idea and am planning on borrowing it for a while.  It just makes sense.

Over the summer months I am planning on posting various "Take 3" cards.  Each week I will post one card on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday showcasing one stamp (or perhaps one embellishment).  I think it will be lots of fun.  I know I have already had fun today as I got this weeks cards ready!!   By having them posted earlier in the week that still gives me a few days to post individual cards that I might have created over the week but not interrupt the flow of the Take 3. 

Thw image that is being showcased this week is a hot air balloon that comes from a $1.50 set (G Studio) that I picked up at Michaels a few months ago.  It is so adorable and, of course, easily adjusted to make 3 different cards because hot air balloons can come in many different colors! 

Here is today's card:

This image was stamped and then colored with some bold Copic colors.  Then, I took a strip of white cardstock and using the same colors crated a great embellishment.  The cardbase is Soft Sky from Stampin' Up!

I can't wait to show you tomorrow's card.  It is so different from this one.  See you then!
