"Try It Different" Tuesday: Hot Air Balloon Pals

I'm so excited to show you this week's card, created by our friend Debbie Fisher:

It features 11255MC Balloon Kitties Clear Set, which is part of the Furry Friends collection from NEW Inky artist Maria Woods:

We're so excited to have Maria join our Inky family! Her critters are just adorable, and I look forward to showing you more samples using her charming stamp designs in the upcoming weeks.

For now, let's focus on those cute Hot Air Balloon Pals (7005J in wood mounted), though. Here's a different card, made by talented Michelle Pearson:

As you can see, Michelle filled in the hot air balloon with hand-drawn Zentangle-style designs in various colors. What a neat idea, huh? If you click on the photo above, you can check out her fun details!

Sometimes you can use just part of a stamp to get a different effect. Debbie's sample below shows the partial image, sans balloon, decorating a treat box made using V1-1223 Rectangle Box Template:

And just for a little more inspiration, she also stamped this sweet card using the balloon kitties image from the same set:

Which of the stamp sets from the Furry Friends collection is paw-sitively YOUR favorite, Inky friends?
