I Thank My Lucky Stars For You

Hi bloggers!! Happy Sunday to you! I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend! If you’re anything like me, you instantly smiled when you saw this adorable card by Kelly Marie Alvarez.  She continues to come up with such sweet and innovative ideas! I will let her take it away to give you more details on the card.  Enjoy!
The other night I had a dream of a critter in a hot air balloon, and I knew I had to make this card! (Yes, I dream about stamping!)

I colored and cut out the images from Lawn Fawn’s Blue Skies and Critters in the ‘Burbs stamp sets. Then I took my craft knife and made an incision in the basket. I cut down my bunny so he could fit in, and then I was able to tuck him right in the basket! I added some foam adhesive behind his head, and it really looks like he is riding in the balloon!
One thing I just love about the Blue Skies Lawn Cuts dies is that the cloud works with the stamps or without! I really liked the idea of some negative space on my night sky, so I used the dies to cut out some clouds in my navy panel.

To curve my Lucky Stars sentiment, I used my balloon to help guide me as I curved it on the block. That made it really easy to make sure it would hug the balloon perfectly!
I used some of the stars from Blue Skies to decorate my panel. My finishing touch was some Stickles. Every time I used Stickles, I get it all over the place, so I decided to squirt some on a piece of scratch paper and use a paintbrush to line the inside and outside of my clouds. It worked perfectly!

Thank you so much to Simon for having me! Happy Summer!
