July 19th Hot Air Balloon Set – Visit Jenny’s, Leslie’s (that's me!) and Anya’s sites.

Ready to see what I created with my new stamps and die?  Well, here they are!

I had originally planned on making this a panel for the front of a card, but I liked it so much that I've decided to make it a small shadow box.  This project was so easy to make!  I die cut grunge board using the largest label one nestie and another die cut using my hot air balloon.  The label nestie was sponged with brown, orange, yellow, and red inks and stamped with Prickley Pear's Ferris Wheel.  I die cut and ripped a piece of Tim Holtz dp and attached it to the bottom of my panel using mod podge.  The metal phrase was sponged with brown alcohol ink, attached with strong glue, and outlined in blue smooch on the bottom.  My balloon die cut was stamped and colored then paper pieced using red paper.  I attached it using pop dots.  My large Heidi Swapp flower was distressed with brown ink, folded in half, and attached to the back with scor tape.  The flower brad is two brads layered together and held in place with strong glue.

Be sure and check back over the next few days for more cards featuring this great new set!
