I've taken inspiration from the Occasions Catalogue for today's card. This was one of the cards we made at February card classes. (Keen to catch a card making class in March? Dates and details here: Classes)
It features the Lift Me Up stamp set and coordinating Up and Away thinlits. I love how you can cut each stripe of the balloon in different colours then layer the detailed balloon over the top. See the different pieces there at the left in this pic.
Colours: I've used Watermelon Wonder, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette and White for the stripes then Basic Gray over the top for the detailed layer. Soft Sky for the base layer and some cute clouds to finish.
Balloon Options: You can either keep the balloon basket on (such as in my card below) or you can snip it off and replace it with a little stamped note (see card above.) There are a bunch of different balloon themed greetings in a snazzy font.
Adhesives: I used the fine tip glue for this one. You just need a little. I'm not the biggest fan of liquid glues (I always seem to get them EVERYWHERE!) but I quite liked the fine tip glue for this project.
Have you ever been in a hot air balloon? I love watching them on the horizon from our back balcony on clear mornings. John and I (and a little bump that was to be Hannah) went up in one in Canberra. Such a smooth ride and so quiet. A memorable trip and great views of our capital city.
I'm enjoying creating with the balloon bundle. Get the stamp set and thinlits as a bundle and save 10%.
Have a fabulous day.
Shopping from home? I love to shop in my PJs. Here's the products I've used.
