My life for the months of June and July has been nutso crazy. Between birthdays and graduations, weddings and family trips, I haven't had a single weekend day free since early May. So today, I thought I'd create a card that would take me away from all this craziness and just let me float away to a land of glitter and crafting!

Main Supplies used:

Stampendous Cling Hot Air Trio CRP198
Stampendous Soaring Sentiments SSC1170
Dreamweaver Original Embossing Paste
Stewart Stamp & Stick Glue Pad
Stampendous Crystal Glitter

  1. Paste emboss Hot Air Balloon on aqua cardstock.  Set aside to dry.
  2. Stamp Hot Air Trio with Versamark on teach cardstock
  3. Stamp sentiment on patterned paper using black ink.
  4. Adhere patterned paper to card base. Embellish with ric rac.
  5. Realign stencil over pasted balloon and add color using pigment inks and stencil brush.
  6. Dab Stamp & Stick glue pad over colored image and heat set. Sprinkle on crystal glitter.
  7. Trim around pasted image and adhere to card with foam tape.
Very easy, somewhat quick and for just a few moments, took me to a place I haven't in a long time: the magical land of crafting and glitter!

Thanks for stopping by. And now head on over to the other bloggers posts.Remember today is the last day of the HOP so be sure to leave a comment so you can win one of the fabulous prize packages!
