Today I have a card with the Hot Air Balloon Bundle.  Paired with the Lighter Than Air DSP, it is a fun card for any age.

Stamp Bundle

The Hot Air Balloon Bundle has several balloons, or parts that can be used to create a balloon.  And the dies has even more pieces to die cut and create balloons.  I used three different dies to cut the three balloons.  The baskets are separate dies and there are a few of those as well.  My favorite may be the heart shaped balloon that is pink on the back section.

The stamping done is all from the stamp set, with one exception.  I stamped the sentiments on the front balloon prior to die cutting and then on the inside where you would sign.  That balloon is stamped in a softer Soft Sea Foam for a cute touch.  The extra stamp used is the clouds.  It is from the Bright Skies stamp set.  This is the smaller cloud that has what looks like rain slanted across it.  I did not want the rain.  And since it is photopolymer, I simply turned it over and stamped with the other side.  The softer blue is a stamped off Pool Party to create the clouds.


The colors came from the DSP of course.  It is the Lighter Than Air Designer Series Paper.  I chose to use five different patterns for the card layers and balloons.  You never see a group of balloons that are the same color or pattern.  So I had to make mine different.

The card base is Azure Afternoon, with that being a color of the striped front panel as well as the dotted strips.  It also works well with the Pool Party clouds.  I completed each balloon with an Opaque Faceted Gems from Sale-A-Bration as the top button of each balloon.


This is a Double Z fold.  The card base is 4 1/4 X 11 and scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.  The small Z is 1 1/2 X 11 and scored at 2 3/4 And 5 1/2.  For the DSP, the front panel is 2 1/2 X 4, and the strips are 5 1/4 X 1 1/4 for the largest, and 2 1/2 X 1 1/4 (2) for the short sections.  The two white panels are 2 1/2 X 4 for the signature piece and 5 1/4 X 4 for the back panel.
