WPlus9 August 2015 Release {Day 3}

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

 
 
Have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon?  I want to so badly, but my fear has gotten the best of me.  We've even gone to balloon festivals where you can float up, still tethered to the ground, and I haven't been able to do it....yet!  One day.....
 
Today we are continuing the fun with more projects from the new August release.  I have a card to share featuring the Going Places Stamps and Dies paired with the Starry Night Background Die.
Perfect together!  
I love the Starry Night Background Die because it doesn't cut an outline which means you can cut those stars anywhere on your project.  Here I have cut them from the center of a card panel cut with the Love Mom Layers rounded rectangle die.  I have backed the stars with a piece of white cardstock that has been colored with the same Copics used to color the hot air balloon.

I have layered up three balloons and three raccoons because I just love the dimension!  I added those adorable bows.  This set has the cutest details!
 
 
 
I love this set so much!  I'm sure you will too!

  1. Adorable card, Kara! Love how you popped up the balloon!
    Never been in a hot air balloon either and the only one I would consider even going in is one tethered to the ground. ;)

  2. What a cute card. I love the adorable critters in this going places set. I'm so with you on the getting up high in the air in a wicker basket, I think the terror would overcome the rewards of the views.

  8. This is so cute!! I love how you created the fun dimensions!!

    I would LOVE to go on a balloon ride but my fear of heights won't let me. I should just do it, though. Maybe when I turn 50 in a few years!!! When I was 21, I jumped out of a plane. Went to classes and did a tandem jump all by myself-no friends with me. It was so FUN. Sometimes you have to step through the fear because really, what is the worse that can happen? (okay, you could get hurt but you were tethered, not so much!)

  16. Omg, Kara, I don't think this could be any cuter!! I've never ridden in a hot air balloon, too afraid, not because of the heights but because I tend to get air sickness :(
