'Peace and Harmony' Unstampabelles final week.

This is the final week to find Peace and Harmony at Unstampabelles. You are challenged to create anything craft related that portrayed either Peace or Harmony with an added twist to incorporate flight in your creation. The only rule is that you don't used stamped images including digis. Not too difficult is it and there's a fab prize on offer.

It's a beautiful Spellbinders die donated by Susan.
                                                           This my inspiration for you.
I have created a peaceful scene of hot air balloons floating over the Med!! I used papers for the balloons from the Nit Wits paper pad, 'Bonnets and Bowties' LOTV, I got this as a freebie in a magazine.....can't remember which one. It came with a 'Happy Birthday' stamp which I haven't used yet. The 'balloon' was made with three balloon shapes stuck together, back to back, and then 'fanned' out to give a 3D effect. The template was given to me by my crafting partner. I think she got it in a magazine and that's where the idea had originated from.  I used corrugated card for the 'basket' and straight line peel offs for the 'ropes'. Not sure where the scene came from. I found it when browsing through my many images on the PC. The white bird/dove is a diecut that one of my crafters gave me. I add the words Peace and Harmony which found when I googled the words. I found some lovely images and inspirational quotes when Googling . So if you're stuck for further inspiration that's another source you could use.
So only one week left to get your creative juices flowing for this challenge. Grab a cuppa and pop over to Unstampabelles (link in sidebar) for more inspiration from my teamies. You won't be disappointed!!
Have a peaceful week crafters.


  1. What a stunning card! Really like those 3D balloons. Best, CG

  2. My card was so much like yours only yours was better so I scrapped it - it was only half done anyway, and my balloons looked a little wonky! Yours are fabulous! I was going to make something else and I did but I was so excited about the bubblewrap tip that I published it early! Great card - thanks!

  3. Love your card Wynn, hot air balloons are brilliant for the Peace & Harmony theme! Have you ever had a ride in one? If you ever get the chance do it, it's totally amazing!

    1. Thank you Dawn. No not ridden in one. I used to watch them from the house we lived in a few years ago. We were very high up and the balloons would float past the house through the valley.....magical to watch. I don't think they have them now in Paphos.
