Good Morning and Happy Easter! Today I’m sharing the card that I made in my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon using the new Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds bundle from the upcoming 2022 – 2023 Annual Catalog. This is a beautiful floral bundle with outline floral photopolymer stamps and wonderful sentiments. Each floral image has a corresponding die and there are specialty background and edge dies that can be used with any stamp set. I also used other products from the Hues of Happiness Suite including the designer series paper and Glossy Dots. You can find the currently available supplies I used in my video at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
Here is the link to the Facebook Live video from yesterday. I also posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel and you can view it here if you prefer. I’ve included it in this post:
I adhered a panel of the beautiful Hues of Happiness designer series paper to a Melon Mambo mat and adhered it to the front of a So Saffron card base with dimensionals. I cut a Basic White rectangle with the third largest Scalloped Contours die and cut another panel with the lattice die from the Blossoming Happiness dies in the Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds bundle. I adhered the lattice panel to the inside of the scalloped rectangle with liquid glue and adhered them both the card front with liquid glue.
I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black twice on a Basic White panel. I colored one flower with the Melon Mambo and the other with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and did both centers in Dark Smoky Slate. I stamped double leaf three times on Basic White and colored them with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. I cut the cut the flowers and leaves out with the corresponding dies.
I punched the ends of a So Saffron strip with the Lovely Labels pick a Punch and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black. I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals on the DSP and a glue dot on the layered die cut. I adhered flowers to the card front with dimensionals and adhered the leaves with glue dots, tucking them under the flowers. I finished with three Melon Mambo Glossy Dots.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the small bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I colored it with Stampin’ Blends – Flirty Flamingo, Smoky Slate, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Fresh Freesia and Granny Apple Green. I stamped the pretty sentiment next to the bouquet and trimmed the bottom in DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The beautiful line images in the Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds stamp set can be used with so many different techniques – embossing, water coloring, stamping on DSP – so it makes it a versatile stamp set. The sentiments cover many different occasions and they’re written in a pretty script with extended lines at the beginning and end of the words. Here’s a picture of the card, stamp set, dies, DSP and dots that I used, along with the sample card I made. The sample card was made from the blue side of the DSP and had a Pool Party card base, Gorgeous Grape mat and flowers colored in Fresh Freesia and Pool Party Stampin Blends.
Here’s a peek of all the patterns in the Hues of Happiness DSP. Aren’t they pretty!
And here’s another shot of the new Items I used in my card. Note the lattice die on the bottom and the two edge dies – the spiral notebook and the slotted edge dies – can’t wait to use these! Also note how the DPS has two color pallettes!
