Hot air balloons always seem to be popular and almost magical as we see them gliding across the sky. Many cities, including Houston, have an annual hot air balloon festival, which is really a spectacular sight. But hot air balloons are a hot trend in papercrafting right now. I decided to use up most of my "Love Impressions" Rub-Ons #121886 which Stampin' Up! gave us demonstrators as a gift!
Two of the hot air balloons are rubbed right on to the card. The one with the cross-hatch balloon is rubbed on to a piece of Whisper White card stock and cut out, then popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals. The two smallest clouds are also rub ons, but guess what the other three clouds are made from?? They are the frosting from the Build a Cupcake Punch #121807 in the Occasions Mini Catalog! I sponged a little bit of Marina Mist ink around the edges of the "clouds" and two are popped up with Dimensionals. Even the "Love You" is rubbed on to a piece of Whisper White card stock and punched out with the 3/4" x 15/16" Oval Punch #120908. It would have looked good just applied straight to the card but I embellished it with an oval punch of Marina Mist card stock and two silver brads.
If you need an easy way to make a card, having some rub ons and card stock will do it! To order any of these supplies, please visit my Online Store! Don't forget, with a $50 order (before shipping and tax) you may choose a free Sale-A-Bration reward!
