Ahhh, the weather has been warm and I’m loving every minute of it! Some say Spring is in the air but I say Love is in the Air!!! Spring is my favorite season. I love the new life of flowers, plants, and animals, that warm sun and cool breeze and all the bright colors!!! I can’t wait!!!
For this card, I used a Calypso Coral card base. Then I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the 3 different clouds all over the background from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set. Marina Mist is the perfect blue for clouds! For the hot air balloon, I used the coordinating Up & Away Thinlits Dies to die cut out the pieces with the Big Shot! You can Bundle & Save 10% when you purchase these 2 together as a bundle. I did the detailed balloon in Calypso Coral. For the strips behind it, I did Marina Mist and Mint Macaron. I am loving this color combination. It is the perfect pastel collection. I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the pieces to the back of the detailed balloon piece. You can also use a sponge and lightly pounce some glue from the Multi-Purpose Glue Pen onto the back. I added the hot air balloon to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give a little texture and 3D look to the balloon!
For the greeting, I added a piece of Marina Mist measuring 1/2″ x 4″ along the bottom. I stamped the greeting from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set onto a scrap piece of Whisper White. Using the Classic Label Punch, I punched it out and then added it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used some of the skinny edge pieces. I just trimmed it to the correct length and it was perfect! To finish off the card, I added a few Enamel Shapes!! It is just perfect!!!
