Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Birthday for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog.  If you are starting with me, be sure to visit everyone’s blog to see their projects. This week we had a Color Challenge.  Here are the colors we had to work from.

Here’s my card using these fun colors.

I started by cutting the ‘HAPPY’ sentiment out of a panel of Night of Navy and Purple Posy cardstock using the Happy Dies.  I adhered the 2 sentiments together, off setting them a bit to give a shadow effect using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I embossed a panel of Coastal Cabana cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and cut 2 pieces from it.

I adhered the 1 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ embossed panel of Coastal Cabana cardstock to the top of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 1 3/4″ X 5 1/2″ embossed panel of Coastal Cabana to the bottom of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I fussy cut the sentiment out using my Paper Snips and adhered it below the happy on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the small panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the card front to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On scrap pieces of Coastal Cabana and Purple Posy cardstock, I stamped the small striped balloon image from the So Much Happy stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I cut the balloons out using the Happy Dies.  I cut 2 of the strings out of a small panel of Night of Navy cardstock using the Happy Dies.  I adhered the strings to the balloons using Glue Dots and then the balloons to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small strip balloon image and the string image from the So Much Happy stamp set twice in Night of Navy Ink on the side of the panel.  I adhered a thin strip of the Playing With Patterns DSP to the top of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small striped balloon and the string images from the So Much Happy stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns DSP to the envelope flap
