Welcome to some Rubbernecker Inspiration! Today I've used the Hot Air Balloon Die (along with a few other things) to create two completely different kinds of cards!
My first card is a scene! I used the Scalloped die along with the Rectangle die to create a frame for my scene.
Then I created my scene using the Hill dies, the Cloud Trees, and clouds. I used the Tree dies to create some smaller shrub type plants and then added some pink and yellow flowers with Nuvo drops.
Then I cut the balloon from some pretty floral design paper and again from white. I took the white frame and added foam tape to the back of it before I added my other pieces in. That created a nice sticky base to adhere my floral pieces to. And there are a couple really tiny pieces so I just cut the floral and carried the whole cutting plate over to my table so I wouldn't lose them! Finally I just added a sentiment from the Best Wishes Etc clear stamp set with a hand cut banner.
It was fun to create this scene for the balloon die, but it's also great for a quick and simple card like this one:
I love how versatile the lovely dies from Rubbernecker are! I just cut my Scalloped and Stitched Rectangle from white; used an embossing folder on the Stitched Rectangle and popped both layers up with foam tape.
Then I just put the balloon together the same as before! And used the same sentiment... and I love the way it came out!
Hope this helps you look at your dies a little differently... when I saw this die I immediately thought how cute the scene would be that I'd create with it... but I love it all by itself also!
I'm playing along over at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge which is Anything Goes this week!
