Hi there and welcome! I hope your summer is off to a splendid start! We’ve been a hoppin’ around here with a college graduation, moving kids home from college, and then back to the college to start grad school and summer jobs about 4 hours away. It’s a lot of busy work, but I’ll do about anything to spend time with my girls, and in Santa Barbara? You’ll hear no complaints from me! These crazy days will soon pass and then I’ll be repeating it with the little girls. I. Will. Not. Blink!
Today, I’m sharing all things hot air balloons. I’ve got two cards detailed here and a third on the Hero Arts blog. Let’s get to it!
White heat emboss airplane onto die cut Sand panel, balloon onto a scrap of Sand and die cut, and the sentiment onto a strip of Sand. Color in details on each of the embossed elements with Prismacolor Pencils in Pink, Blush Pink, White, Beige Sienna and Colorless Blender. Pop large Sand panel over ink blended panel and then nest balloon into place. Pop sentiment into place and adhere finished panel to folded card base.
Color balloon in Prismacolors in White, Apple Green, Parma Violet, Hot Pink, Blue Violet Lake, Jasmine and Dark Brown with a touch of Colorless Blender for the basket.
One of these three is a specific thank you card, but the other two are fantastic stash builders. When the need arises, I just grab one from my drawer and add a happy birthday, congratulations, or whatever the occasion requires to the interior sentiment. Voila, I am ready to go!
Have an amazing day and I’ll see you soon! Happy crafting!
