Vintage Patriotic Hot Air Balloon Card - Blank Page Muse DT

I always find it a pleasant surprise to find a kinetic element on a card. My hot air balloon is free hanging and; therefore, can swing when the card is handled. Challenge yourself to add something a bit unexpected to your project like a hinged element, wiggly eyes, or a shaker filled with sequins. All this month you will find more inspiration from the design team about clever ways to add movement to your projects. You can find the complete tutorial for this card at the Blank Page Muse Blog HERE.

    Blog Hop - Blank Page Muse New Stamp Release

    Welcome to BPM Blog Hop to celebrate BPM releasing five new sets.  BPM's trademark is high quality rubber with deeply etched unique images . Follow along the blog hop to each of the marvelous designers and find some wonderful inspiration using the new designs.  I'm sure you will love them all.
    My cards feature the set "Kindness Changes Everything" by Shaloo Webster.  I created two cards using the same stamp to create two very different looks for the background. Using different colors and techniques really allows one to stretch their supplies. With the same design, I created a distressed card, as well as, a clean and elegant card. 

    Enjoy the rest of the BPM Hop and join us tomorrow as more projects will be shared.
    For the first card, I created a resist by heat embossing the design with clear powder and then applyied mists over it.  (Kindness Changes Everything by Shaloo Webster)

    TIP: After the sprays have dried be sure to take a tissue and gently wipe
     over the embossed images to remove the mist that dried on the embossing powder.
    Doing so will really make the design pop.

    For the second card, I heat embossed with two colors simultaneously. I blended gold & purple to create a unique intermingling of colors. (Kindness Changes Everything)
