High Thank You

 Have you ever gone up on a hot air balloon? I often thought it would be quite an adventure to experience. Yet, it seems the older I get, the more fearful I become of heights. So, I do not see it happening any time soon. Here are some hot air balloons flying over the neighborhood. What do you think?

   Lift Me Up
   Teeny Tiny Wishes
   Good Neighbors

   Not Quite Navy A-2, Scraps
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)
   Ruby Red Scraps
   Barely Banana Scraps

   Not Quite Navy
   Ruby Red
   Barely Banana
   Basic Gray

   Die Cutting
   2-Step Stamping

   Up & Away Thinlits
   Basic Rhinestone Jewels

First, I stamped my townhouses on the bottom of the card. I added the roofs. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig tool to get exact stamping on these. I did not want the roofs to fall. Since this is a wooden stamp set, the stamp-a-ma-jig was the best tool to use with the least amount of trouble.

I then stamped clouds randomly above. In retrospect, I would stamp fewer ones, or leave them out completely. After all, we want to see the balloons!

Next, I stamped and die cut my balloons. I adhered these to the card front, using liquid adhesive.

Lastly, I added rhinestones, stamped my sentiment, and adhered the other Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. Great collection of hot air balloons and a wonderful scene Sally.

  2. Thank you, Lisa! I think I will leave the clouds out and just sponge or blend the background with some light blue tones. Happy Stamping!
