Welcome to the May#2 Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps!
If you arrived here from Miriam’s blog, you’re in the right place..if not, you may want to head over there first.
The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through Sunday May 21 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on May22 on her Blog. Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Simple Flower Set! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!
My card is fairly quick since this fab die does almost all of the work for you! Since I first saw it, it’s been one of my faves (especially since I suggested it to Mary, way back when, lol)! I adore hot air balloons…it’s impossible not to smile & be happy when you see them. And I used it today because I have a friend who recently received some bad news, health wise & I’m sure she could use a smile.
After die cutting the reverse hot air balloons out of cobalt, I found some paper that had these chevrons in blues & green & I thought it went perfectly w/ the patterns in the balloons. I die cut the clouds part of the die again in white to add on top of the white stitched frame, then added the fussy cut speech bubble w/ the greeting in the lower right.
Here’s a look at the inside using some of the leftover parts. (I also used a mask of the balloon die to sponge the blue ink on the side of the envelope.)
Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!
