Welcome everyone! Not only do I have a video for you today but I have some exciting news! I’m joining the HoneyBee Stamps Video Team which means once a month, I’ll be sharing a video creating with their amazing products !
Today I’m going to playing with the Up, Up & Away, Blown Away and Mountain Z Fold from their latest release.
You can view the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
I love cards with hot air balloons and couldn’t resist playing with the Up, Up & Away set. When I think of hot air balloons, I think of bright colors so I decided to color the image with my Karin Brushmarkers Pro. I’ve been experimenting with these off camera and they are so bright!
I stamped the image in Versafine Nocturne Ink and colored with the Karin Brushmarkers Pro and a paint brush. After the image was dry, I using the coordinating die to cut out the image.
In any pictures I found of hot air balloon scenes, it was always bright blue skies but I decided to change it up. I ink blended Squeezed Lemonade, Abandoned Coral and Dusty Concord Distress Oxide inks with the HoneyBee Stamps blending brushes on my Ranger Silicone mat. Then I flicked on some water and also some Metallic White Watercolors.
The clouds at the bottom are from the Mountain Z Fold Die set. I trimmed the panel down so it was just these billowing clouds at the bottom of my card. I added a little bit of Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink to break up the white a little bit. I also used the coordinating die of the Up, Up & Away set to add some clouds to my scene.
I finished off the card with a sentiment from the Blown Away stamp set. I heat embossed Alabaster Embossing Powder onto Pitch Black cardstock and trimmed down with a banner die. My hot air balloon is attached to the card front with foam squares for dimension and I also popped up the sentiment with black foam squares.
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will join me each month!

Love, love, love it. The hot air ballon is so bright and I love how you added the clouds. Question-why did you use Versafine Clair ink pad instead of regular Versafine? And is the whole card watercolor paper or just the balloon? Thanks
The balloon and the background are gorgeous!!
This is beautiful. I got to choose one of these markers when I was at Jenn Dove’s boot camp ast year and wish I had a whole bunch of these great markers.
