Love Balloons

When I received my new goodies from the Occasions Mini, I found a surprise in my package--a sheet of rub ons that Stampin' Up! sent as a gift to all demonstrators.  The sheet is from the new Love Impressions rub ons (page 8), and I adore the heart hot air balloons.  I've always wanted to go for a hot air balloon maybe this will be a nice hint for that certain someone.  Wink, wink!

I got my color scheme from the rub ons themselves: Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White and Basic Gray.  One of the great things about rub ons is that they are sharp and bright, even against dark colors, so I decided to adhere my rub ons to a piece of Basic Gray, which I layered on some Pink Pirouette.  I used the Scallop Trim Border and Corner punches to add interest to the pink frame.

For the card itself, I got out one of my favorites from last year's Occasions Mini, the jumbo wheel I {Love} Love (it's still available--see page 46 of the idea book and catalog).  I used a Real Red ink cartridge, and decided that this stripe of sentiments was all the card needed.  Sweet and simple!


Stamps: I {Love} Love jumbo wheel
Ink: Real Red
Paper: Basic Gray, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette
