Hello. Thanks for reading Caro’s Pretty Things!

One of my first ever posts was showing you some layered cards I made with the Stampin’ Up! Quintessential Flower stamp.    Unfortunately this stamp is now retired, but there is a similar one in this year’s catalogue called Five Way Flower.  (Here’s a great video tutorial on how you can use these sorts of stamps by Karen Titus).

I have a box on my bookshelf with lots of extra embellishments or half finished projects.  Ever since I made those cards I have had a few layers of the quintessential flower sitting in the box waiting for me to figure out what to do with them.

And so now I present – some quintessential hot air balloons!




I loved how these turned out so much I wanted to show you them separately.   The button in the middle (stuck on with a mini glue dot) just seemed to add that little bit extra for some reason?

I think that is the end of my hot air balloon obsession for a little while.  I wonder what I’ll obsess about next?!?

Thanks for reading 🙂
