More Celebrate Today Hot Air Balloons

I think I’ve decided that my favorite thing to do with the balloons in the Celebrate Today stamp set is to turn them into hot air balloons.  Somehow that just opens the doors to more creative opportunities in my mind.  (I can get stuck in ruts sometimes, as in – a balloon has a string . . . what else do you do with it it except add more balloons with strings and tie the strings all together. . . . )

In fact, I debated about having the Celebrate Today stamp set as a Stamp of the Month set, simply because I was wondering how I was going to come with 5 cards all focused around balloons and not have them all look the same. Stampin' Up! Celebrate Today stamp setThankfully there are other creative people out there who help inspire us from time to time.  Don’t you agree?!  I created my version of this card after seeing a similar one.  I like how it turned out.  In fact, I’m thinking this may end up inspiring a scrapbook layout for Scrap Club!

Thank you for coming by today!  I look forward to seeing a number of your throughout the week as we take advantage of the sun (and lack of falling ice/snow!) to get caught up on classes.

  3. Love the hot air balloon card! Did you have a verse inside that went well with the balloon?

    • Hi Cathy,

      Honestly, I very seldom put sentiments on the inside of my cards. I like to write and fill the inside instead.
