I happen to love hot air balloons and had to dig around in my stash for the balloon stamp set I just knew
I had, but since I tend to be a bit of an "acquire it and forget about it for a while" kind of gal, it took a bit more digging than it probably should have. Now, had I had my creative stash neatly documented and categorized like those wonderfully organized individuals we all see on Pinterest, I may have spared myself some frustration. Good thing I'm not a quitter! I actually found it! Once I had it in hand, I wanted to make a thank you themed card because I feel I owe a lot of people a thank you during this milestone celebration!
I've been loving the Distress Oxide Inks for blending the last little while, so pulled those out to create a pretty skyline on the main panel. Once dry, I dressed it up a bit by die cutting it with a stitched rectangle die and spritzed it lightly with some Gold Color Shine spray to add a little shimmer. The skyline silhouette and simple sentiment were stamped in black ink. Three small silver star sequins were added as embellishments. The assembled main panel was then popped up on the card base using foam adhesive for dimension.
I won't keep you any longer, so head on to the next stop on the hop, Altenew
Have fun and good luck!
