Have you ever been to a hot air balloon festival or had a ride in one? I have not but I have seen them from a distance. All the balloons in the air look amazing and beautiful. Each one is different and they are all so colorful. Personally, I would probably be scared to death to ride in one. I am not really fond of heights although I don’t have Acrophobia (fear of heights).
The stamp set I used in this card is called Lift Me Up. It was in the 2017 Occasions Catalog and was carried over into the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. It has a set of matching Thinlit called Up & Away which make it so easy to cut out the balloons.
I used our new Embossing Paste and Pattern Party Decorative Masks to make the clouds. I purposely didn’t try to smooth out the clouds because I wanted them to look a little fluffy. Stampin’ Up! Embossing past is amazing. It is really easy to work with and dries fairly quickly so you don’t have to wait all day to continue making your project. Stampin’ Up! even sells a set of three Palette Knives to help you spread the Embossing Paste evenly.
