Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  We’re halfway through the week already and heading to a long holiday weekend.  I hope you all have Friday off for the 4th of July.

For today I used another new bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by cutting the ‘HAPPY’ out of a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using my Happy Dies.  I adhered it to a Night of Navy panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the sentiment on an angle on a panel of Purple Posy card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut out 2 strips of banners using my Happy Dies, one in Calypso Coral and one in Coastal Cabana.  I adhered one above and one below the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Paper Snips I trimmed all the excess that was hanging over the card front panel.  I stamped 1 large balloon and 2 small balloons from the Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Cling Stamp Set in Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana Inks on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the balloons, 3 strings and 3 bows out using my Happy Dies.  I adhered the strings to the back of the balloons using Glue Dots and the bows to the front of the balloons using a tiny dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the balloons to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the So Much Happy stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips and adhered it below the die cut sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

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 large & small balloons and strings from the So Much Happy stamp set in Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large & small balloons and strings from the So Much Happy stamp set in Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana Inks.  I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Happiest Of Birthdays For Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Birthday”. I wanted to make a fun card this month, so I decided to use a new set that I just received from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and the new fun DSP.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Purple Posy card front using Stampin’ Seal.  There are so many great designs to choose from in this pack of DSP, I had to have my daughter pick for me.  I wrapped a piece of the 1/2″ Purple Posy ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and tied a bow on the side of the panel.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the largest sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the cut sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Purple Posy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Purple Posy Playing With Pattern Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Playing With Pattern 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
