Hello Yellow Balloons

Hello Yellow Balloons cu 07147
Today’s Technique Challenge (TLC547) wants us to use just one word & no images, but any embellishments we want. Geez, Louise! That’s a toughie for me! No images? No coloring? The only thing I could think to use was this card covering die of Hot Air Balloons. It’s seriously fabulous & makes a CAS (clean & simple) card look dressed up.

I die cut it once out of heavy white c/s & again out of yellow designer paper then stacked it a little offset. I added the double stacked Hello die for my one word, added a few sequins & that’s pretty much it. Here’s a look at the inside.

I trimmed around one of the cut out balloons, added a couple of clouds & a greeting.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    I am redecorating my spare bedroom as a guest room and playroom for my grandkids with the theme being flying, airplanes, hot air balloons, kites.The colors will be gold, white, black. I was wondering if you sell what you make? I love the hot air balloon card front that you made that says Hello. It would look nice on the room wall I think.

    Would you sell it and how much would it be? Thanks, Julie Higgins (from Nebraska). juhiggins@aol.com

  13. Hi there, I am wondering if you are still selling this hot air balloon reverse die? I would love love to buy it if so. I look forward to hearing back from you.
