I used the Stampin’ Up! Hot Air Balloon stamp set bundle to create a quick birthday card to share with you today. The Hot Air Balloon stamp set bundle will be available to order beginning Janury 4! I made this project out on Instagram this morning and you can see it here.
My card design is very loosely inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #612.
I started by applying Balmy Blue ink with a Blending Brush to the center of a panel of Basic White card stock. Then I embossed the panel with the crosshatch folder from the Basics 3D Embossing Folders (Online Exclusive item). I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Balmy Blue card stock with Stampin’ Seal and then to the front of a Fresh Freesia card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the balloon and basket images from the Hot Air Balloon stamp set (available Jan 4) in Bubble Bath, Lemon Lolly, Fresh Freesia, Pool Party and Crumb Cake inks on a panel of Basic White card stock. I cut the images out with the coordinating Hot Air Balloon Dies (available Jan 4) and then cut three clouds from the Basic White panel with the Hot Air Balloon Dies. I adhered the clouds and smaller balloon images with Mini Glue Dots and the larger balloon images with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.
I stamped the sentiment from the Hot Air Balloon stamp set in Fresh Freesia ink on a panel of Basic White card stock and then cut it out with the coordinating die from the Hot Air Balloon Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added two Fresh Freesia dots from the Rainbow Adhesive-Backed Dots (available Jan 4) to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment and balloon images from the Hot Air Balloon stamp set in Fresh Freesia, Bubble Bath, Lemon Lolly and Crumb Cake inks on a panel of Basic White card stock to finish the inside of the card.
