Lift Me Up Hot Air Balloons

Lift Me Up! Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Have you ever gone Hot Air Balloon chasing?  It's quite the adventure.  Who knows where the balloon might land.  The last time we went on a Hot Air Balloon chase was a lazy evening just before dark.   A beautiful Hot Air Balloon was riding low over our farm house.  Curiosity got the best of us.  We hopped in the car for a balloon chase.  Believe it or not the Balloon landed in a cow pasture a few roads over.  The cows just stood there chewing their cud staring at the strange new arrival.

Today's card brought to mind that dusky evening balloon chase.  The Lift Me Up Bundle captures the beauty and the romance of ballooning and was a perfect choice for making today's card.  It's a must have stamp and die bundle for all Hot Air Balloon lovers.

To get the look of a dusky sky, I heat embossed white Hot Air Balloons, then sponged Soft Sky and Wisteria Wonder ink across them.  This Technique is called Emboss Resist, because the embossed areas resist the ink.  Next, I stamped Wisteria Wonder Clouds and cut them out with the Up & Away Thinlits Dies and my Big Shot and scattered them across my sky.
