June's Club Stamp Set Release from The Stamps of Life - Hot Air Balloon Cards

I'm very excited for June's new Club Stamp Set release at the The Stamps of Life - hot4balloons!!
If you're in the Die Hard Club, you will also love the matching dies! (available later in the month if you aren't in the Die Hard Club.)

Here's my first card made with the set... there are some great sentiments that go with the balloons, and the cloud dies are super! I used a Flip-its card for the base, a couple of Sizzix border dies for on the balloon and at the bottom of the card, and Fancy Pants 'Happy Go Lucky' papers. (Product links at bottom of post.)

There are dies which cut the balloon part out perfectly, or as in the card above, leaving a border around the entire balloon and basket. The gorgeous little sun is also part of the die set.

Here I used a Sizzix Stand-ups die, and a couple more of their border dies to decorate the balloon and lower border.

 And lastly, here I created my own patterned balloons using more stamps in the set, and lovely vivid Stephanie Barnard inks.
