Stampin' Up! Hot Air Balloon ~ Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to my blog!  I'm so happy to be joining the Stamping Inspirations Blog Hop today.  I love being a part of these fun Blog Hops with other stampers sharing what we love and create!  Links to all the other blog posts for this hop are near the end of this post - be sure to check them out!  Hopefully you will be as inspired as I always am seeing what everyone else creates for this month's challenge. 

This month our challenge was to create a card using the Tic-Tac-Toe board below.  I chose the diagonal from top left to bottom right - Texture, Fun and Yellow. 

For this card, I started with Texture, knowing I wanted something different than an embossing folder this time.  I created a mask with the cloud dies from Hot Air Balloon Dies and cheap cardstock.  Using a Blending Brush, I added a little bit of Balmy Blue ink to my White Cardstock.  Then, I used Shimmery White Embossing Paste and my mask to make clouds all over my background. 

I love that you can stamp your sentiment on this banner from Hot Air Balloon Dies then place it perfectly on your die cut balloon.  The Yellow Hot Air Balloon wasn't stamped, just die cut with Lemon Lolly and Daffodil Delight Cardstocks. 

For the inside of the card I stamped another big balloon with a sentiment inside.  I wasn't finished having Fun with my card yet, so I added a few more die cut clouds.  It's hard to see in the photo, but the clouds have a little added sparkle with the help of Wink of Stella. 

What card does this Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge inspire you to create!?
