The card theme I send the most of is either thank you or thinking of you (general) types – because I send a TON of cards to my awesome Patrons. I recently sent out about 140, so I completely depleted my thank you stash, so I’m building it back up again for the next big card writing session!
I bought one airplane stamp set. Then saw another I loved. And bought it without realizing I had another one. LOL. I’m sure that I’m the only one it’s happened to! But – please don’t take it to mean that ANY stamp company is copying another. Generally they all are in production for MONTHS before anyone sees what they’re up to. Unless they’re Chinese counterfeiters, it takes reputable companies a LONG time to develop and produce their stamp sets. But given the number of airplane stamp sets from even more companies like Neat & Tangled and Hero Arts….there’s definitely a love in the air for flying vehicles! In today’s video I’ll show you the two I got and what I like about each, and you can pick what means most to you if you need an airplane set.

Sketches at Mojo Monday are among my go-to’s that I used to use for my cards…I picked Sketch 511 for this set of cards.
From the Sunny Studios sets, I used the sketch a little more traditionally, only altering the orientation of the rectangle in the top half of the card. The sentiment on these is from the Hello Bluebird set.
With the Hello Bluebird set, I made the main image a square, and flipped the design so the image was more at the top. The rectangle became a banner, which was a great place to put the sentiment.
This uses the Sunny Studios set too – and I kept elements of the sketch like the dangling banner in my adaptation, and a horizontal panel. I did eliminate the white pen work here too. I had to do some fancy knife work to cut around the flying banner, but you can also just adhere the banner on with glue instead.
