Who doesn’t love hot air balloons? They are so pretty to watch floating in the sky. Now you can enjoy them anytime with the Above the Clouds bundle (Above the Clouds stamp set and Hot Air Balloon Punch.) I used this bundle along with the Pattern Party Decorative Masks to create today’s card in Rococo Rose, one of the new 2019-2021 In Colors.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with a paper trimmer:

  • Rococo Rose card stock (CS) cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ (2 pieces)

Stamped with the Above The Clouds stamp set:

  • one large balloon, one basket, and three small balloons in Soft Suede ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • sentiment in Soft Suede ink onto one of the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White CS pieces

Punched using the Hot Air Balloon Punch:

  • large balloon and basket

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • 3 small balloons

Colored using Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • basket and all 4 balloons in Rococo Rose

Inked using the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and a Stampin’ Sponge:

  • clouds above the sentiment
  • bricks around the clouds and sentiment

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • balloons and basket adhered onto the CS layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • linen ribbon adhered onto the CS layer using Tear & taps, and the ends wrapped around to the back of the layer
  • a shorter piece of ribbon tied in a knot and adhered onto the first piece of ribbon using Mini Glue Dots
  • CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • plain Whisper White CS piece glued onto the inside of the card base
