Up Up and Away.....

Check out Clear Dollar Stamps Blog for NEW RELEASE MINI MINISTRY SETS today!

On this card I used the new set HOT AIR BALLOON.

I stamped my hot air balloon with Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed for the rich black color and fussy cut around leaving a white edge. I love how the sponged bg turned out. Yay. Gotta love it when a card turns out. Hee

This one uses the new stamp DAISY HOT AIR BALLOON.

I just love the center step card. You can see my tutorial for this 5x5 adaptation HERE.
I made my sponged cloud background then cut up the pieces to put on the card. I stamped my daisy balloon on Orange Whip Cardstock twice, cut out, dry embossed, sponged edges and popped up.
