Hot Air Balloon Card

I hope you're all enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend. We've had lovely weather here and have been making the most of it by doing lots of outside jobs, followed by BBQs and wine in the evening. Bliss.

This card is one of my Claritystamp samples for HSE24. It may look familiar as it's very similar to the card I made for the CO's 40th Birthday.

This time I used the new Clarity Mountain and Hills Mask to create the mountains in the background.

Another change I made this time was to stamp the balloons onto Hunkydory card, rather than colouring them in myself with ProMarkers. It has a lovely sheen to it which I thought worked well for the balloons. I used several co-ordinating sheets so the balloons weren't all the same design.

The post on the CO's card is here and I explain there how I shaped the balloons. This adds a bit of interest to the card and I think it makes them look more realistic.

The sentiment this time says "Best Wishes" in German.

Herzliche Glückwünsche,



  1. Its beautiful Lynne I am sure the Germans will love it. Xx

  2. Teh balloons stand out so well, I never think of using other cards and papers to enhance the stamps - thanks for the inspiration
