I’m Full of Hot Air!


Kimberly VAn Diepen stampin 'Up!


Okay, not ME but I'm in love with Hot Air Balloons.  My Prince is from a little town in Indianola, Iowa where Hot Air Balloons are HUGE.  I fell in love with seeing them when we would visit family.  One time a balloon landed in their front yard.  I was so excited like a little kid.  While I love how pretty they are I especially love a vintage looking balloon.  

My love for the vintage balloon is the very reason why I love the stamp set You're Amazing.  All the images are beautiful but that balloon really stands out.

Simple is a perfect description to put this card together! I simply used my World Spectacular Designer Paper and stamped directly onto it using Soft Suede, Island Indigo, and Sahara Sand.  Another great set that compliments You're Amazing is the Blue Ribbon Stamp set.  It's one of my FAVORITES and really, NO Graduate needed.  This set lends itself very useful for MANY occasions.

Tip: Change up how you place buttons onto your projects.  Try new tying techniques like I displayed on this particular card.  Simply tie your Bakers Twine in the back and let the tails hang.  Keep the button in place using a Mini Glue Dot.
