When Stampers’ Sampler magazine held a contest using a hot-air balloon template, I knew I had to participate.
The rules are simple … use the hot-air balloon template in the magazine and rubber stamps to make something amazing.
My submissions were not selected for publication, but they were fun to make and I wanted to share them …
This one started with paper from Graphic 45. I added ribbon with the Tiny Attacher so it will stay airy and loose like it was flying through the air.
Both the numbers and words are stamped. And the gears and game spinners are from Tim Holtz. Dimensional foam was used under both the balloon and the basket to make a 3D image.
Then I made this one … which I love!
I used Distress Inks to create the background color. The stamp is from Wendy Vecchi. I used a Glaze Pen to add the black dots.
For the basket, I used a Hero Arts background stamp and stamped on Cork Paper by QuicKutz.
