Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde bringing you a card made using one of the cutest encouraging stamp sets I’ve ever used! “Balloon Ride” from Paperie Ink has several critters to choose from and enough hot air balloons to do a little balloon like I did or to do an entire scene.
Here’s how this card came together:

I really enjoyed using this stamp set, I always know I have my hands on a good stamp set when as I am working with it for one card I already begin thinking of what I want to do with it for my next card.
Thank you for joining me today on the blog and taking a closer look at Paperie Ink’s “Balloon Ride.” I hope you get any encouragement you may be needing today and also take a minute to encourage another.
Kim here from @CardmakingBlonde. Today I am sharing a scene card that was made using SFL’s “Winter Fairies” stamp set AND “Fairy House” stamp set. For this card I started by stamping the string lights then decided what other elements worked best and the scene pretty much built itself. You may notice that beside the house is only one tree and that was intentional because space was certainly needed between the tree and the fairy.
The sky in the background is a blend of Copic Markers. Since the string lights were “on” I really wanted a dusk or early evening sky which also turned out to be a wintry sky as well so that was a nice unexpected bonus. If you look closely the paper trimming the scene is from SFL’s “Winter in Pink” paper pad. The fairy is colored in delicate pinks to go with that paper and it wasn’t until I went to adhere it all that I realized my scene just didn’t leave much space for the patterned paper but the snowflakes made a nice mat for it.
Thanks so much for stopping in today, I hope you are inspired to get crafty!
