Stampin' Up! Hot Air Balloon ~ Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop

Hey Stampers!  Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop.  I'm excited to be part of this fun & creative group sharing stamping inspiration with you today!

Our inspiration this month comes from the sketch pictured below.  This is such a fabulous sketch, with SO many possibilities!  I immediately thought of two stamp sets when I saw this set.  The first was the Excellent Eggs stamp set.  Sadly, I don't own that stamp set.  So, I decided to go with the second set that immediately popped into my brain, Hot Air Balloon!

When I was at OnStage in Houston a couple of weeks and got to see the new 2024-2026 In Colors for the first time, I immediately knew that I was going to go home and make a card with Hot Air Balloon using these new colors.  They are PERFECT together!  

OnStage is an amazing event for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators where we get to celebrate our accomplishments for the previous year and play with new product.  The BEST thing about OnStage though is getting to spend time with other demonstrators.  Especially those that live far away that we typically only interact with online.

For the background, I stamped the basket for the center balloon (after stamping off on a scrap of paper once).  Then, I used the Cloud Punch to create several clouds before adhering them to a piece of Basic White Cardstock. 

The NEW 2024-2026 In Colors will be available for purchase May 1, 2024.  Get ready for Cardstock, Ink Pads, Stampin' Blends, Stampin' Write Markers, Ribbons & more in these colors!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!  I hope you have been inspired to create.  Be sure to visit the rest of the blogs listed below for even more inspiration. 

Happy Stamping!
