Happiness Abounds Textured Birthday Card

For today’s birthday card I chose the colour palette from the Colour Inkspirations #140 challenge. So Saffron, Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam are all part of our subtles range and are so pretty together. It was really hard to go past this image and NOT create an Easter card. However,I resisted and opted to use the Happiness Abounds bundle for a floral card instead.

I coloured the flowers in Petal Pink and added some Light So Saffron through the bottom of the petals. This is a colouring technique I use to give variegated looks to images. The leaves were coloured in Soft Sea Foam and I added touches of Petal Pink through them which almost gave them an autumn like look of turning of colours. .

The card sketch was from the Global Design Project Challenge #gdp386 which I switched to a landscape card. I added a textured square for the right side of the sketch.

TEXTURED SQUARE

  • Die cut Gold Fine Shimmer Paper with Stylish Shapes Dies
  • Emboss with Hive Embossing Folder
  • Go over the embossed lines with the Dark Deep Stampin’ Blend
  • Immediately blend with a Blending Brush
  • Repeat until desired colour is achieved

Once you complete this, it takes a little bit of time (and patience) to get those flowers stuck down. The ink on top tends to resist that glue. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue and after several attempts, put a large Clear Block on it and left it to dry. It worked!

The flower formed the centre of the sketch and some blending with a mask formed the left side of the sketch. A sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set layered onto a strip of angled Petal Pink DSP was tucked in under the flower and leaves. I really love how the antique look on the Gold Shimmer Paper brings out the softer elements of this card and hope you do too.

Watercolouring Happiness Abounds with Ink Refills

It’s been a little while since I did some watercolouring which is one of my favourite techniques. This beautiful flower from the Happiness Abounds stamp set was just perfect for getting back into it.

I used the Colour Inkspiration CI136 challenge photo as inspiration with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #570.

I watercoloured the flowers in Blushing Bride and the leaves in a combination of the greens. This card is just so ‘me’ and I really enjoyed creating it. Watch the video tutorial to get all the tips I shared.

    Cas Card with Wonderful World Stamp Set

    I’ve got a Clean and Simple (CAS) card for today’s card inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches FMS549.

    I used the Wonderful World stamp set which is part of the free Wonderful World bundle available during Sale-A-Bration, to create the central image which was stamped twice. Once in Soft Succulent and once in Sweet Sorbet. I fussy cut the flower and mounted in on top of the the stem with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    The die cut circle was layered on a gold foil circle which was blended with Soft Succulent ink. This DSP is another of our Sale-A-Bration products. You just have another 9 days to enjoy the free products that Stampin’ Up! are offering as this promotion ends on 31st August. These products are only available while supplies last.

    The addition of the Dots and Spots die cuts created extra texture. You can get this fantastic die FREE until 31st August with a qualifying order. I got mine free too! It’s just so good to be able to get all this freebies while shopping for your favourite craft products.

    In this photo you can really see the beautiful gold foil under the ink. It’s one of the fun ways to change the look of this paper.

    Hues of Happiness for Freshly Made Sketches #540

    I’ve been inspired by this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for the design of this card. The beautiful Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper provided the focal point for my card. Just use the Blossoming Happiness Dies to die cut the images and you have some quick pre-coloured images to add to your projects.

    To create the panels I blended some Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay ink on 1 rectangle. On the other I lightly blended some Coastal Cabana and then using the background die as a mask, I added Coastal Cabana through the openings. This created a subtle background for the second panel.

    If you love the Hues of Happiness suite you are sure to like my class for Creative Club. You will get to create 5 cards in this class and you will receive a goodie bag with over $30 of product.
