Happiness Blooms

Happiness Blooms Suite meets CAS(E) this Sketch!

Today’s card was made using the Happiness Blooms Suite from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog. I love how having a suite makes it so easy to pull a card together. The card is based on a sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch which is a weekly challenge from Splitcoaststampers.

Pretty Get Well Soon Card

Today I used one of the OWH sketches to make this beautiful Get Well Soon Card.

 
Get Well Soon Sketch.jpg
 

You can find these sketches on Pinterest and I thought this was a fun one. I pretty much followed the measurements except the circle I used is a 1 3/8” because I thought the larger one was too big for the butterfly.

 
OWH Sketch #154.jpg
 

These are the supplies I used. The card base is Petal Pink and the darker layer is Fresh Fig.

 
Get Well Soon Sketch Pieces.jpg
 

I backed the 1 1/2” squares of the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper with the same sized Whisper White to brighten them up a bit.

 
Get Well Soon Sketch1.jpg
 

The sentiment is from the Needle & Thread Stamp set. The large butterflies were punched out with the Butterfly Duet Punch with both the Designer Series Paper and a piece of Petal Pink Cardstock. I punched the smaller ones with Fresh Fig. Add some Basic Pearl Jewels to the butterflies to finish them off.

 
Get Well Soon Sketch2.jpg
 

The sentiment on the inside is also from the Needle & Thread Stamp Set. The butterflies are from the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set. Both are stamped with Fresh Fig Ink.

Country Floral - Thinking Of You

 
Country Floral Embossing Folder Card3.jpg
 

The sentiment I used is from Part Of My Story. Both the Stamp Set and the Embossing Folder are FREE Sale-A-Bration items!

 
Country Floral Embossing Folder Supplies.jpg
 
 

The Dimensions are:

  • Rich Razzleberry Card Base - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4

  • Soft Sea Foam Layer - 5 1/4 x 4

  • Scrap of Rich Razzleberry & Whisper White for Label

Country Floral Embossing Folder Pieces2.jpg
 

To add a little interest, I sponged the embossing folder with Soft Sea Foam Ink before running it through my Big Shot. Just use a sponge brayer and ink it up, lightly add ink to the folder (the side with the Stampin’ Up! label) and add your layer of cardstock. Note, lay the cardstock on the side that is not inked and then close the folder.

Country Floral Embossing Folder sponging.jpg

Here’s the result. The one on the left was sponged and the one on the right was not. Which do you like better?

 
Country Floral Embossing Folder.jpg
 

To create the border on the label, punch Whisper White Label and stamp it. Punch a second label in Rich Razzleberry and cut in half. Adhere the pieces behind the white label to give it a border.

 
Label Collage.png
 

Be sure to adhere your ribbon to the embossed layer before you attach it to the card base. Add the label with Dimensionals and then add a bow with a Mini Glue Dot. Add some Rhinestones to the label and a few of the flowers.

Painted Seasons Missing You Card

My mistake gave me a great idea. I was using this flower stamp on another project and accidentally inked in Crumb Cake Ink, instead of the color I was planning to use. Guess what? I really liked the way it looked! I decided I would create a background with it. I love how subtle it is.

BTW, the Painted Seasons Bundle (Stamp Set and Designer Series Paper) are FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $100 order!!!!

Randomly stamp the flower image with Crumb Cake Ink on the Whisper White Layer. Fill in spaces with leaf image. I stamped on scrap then then on the layer to get a lighter shade.

Easter Lily Window Card

The Lasting Lily Stamp Set and Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper used on this card are FREE during Sale-A-Bration with qualifying orders. BUT, you need to order before March 31, 2019….time is running out!!!

Isn’t this card beautiful? I love the combination of Gorgeous Grape and Lemon Lime Twist. There were a lot of steps to make this card but it was easy and I’ll walk you through it.

Easter Lily Card2.jpg

First adhere a 5 1/4 x 4 piece of Botanical Butterfly DSP to the Lemon Lime Twist Card Base. Using the 4th largest Layering Oval, cut a window in the front of the card.

Lily Easter1.jpg

Open the card and add a 5 1/4 x 4 piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Close the front of the card and lightly draw a circle in pencil around the inside of the oval so you have a guide to stamp your lily image.

Easter Lily2.jpg

Stamp the flower image with Gorgeous Grape Ink in the oval and then erase the oval. Stamp the stem and leaf images with Lemon Lime Twist Ink. I used a piece of scrap at the bottom to protect the card base from getting ink on when stamping the stem and leaves.

Easter Lily3.jpg

Using the largest scalloped oval and the 4th largest oval cut a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock. Lay the oval within the scalloped oval and cut together to create a scalloped layer.

Do the same with the 4th and 3rd largest ovals with Gorgeous Grape Cardstock to get the thin oval layer.

Easter Lily4.jpg

You will layer the grape oval over the green scalloped oval and then adhere them over the window. I used Liquid Glue to make sure they lined up correctly.

Easter Lily6.jpg

Stamp 3 small butterflies with Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White strip and punch out. Color the top wings with a Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Marker.

Easter Lily5.jpg

Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White and cut with smallest Layering Oval and then back it with a scrap of Gorgeous Grape cut from the smallest Scalloped Layering Oval. Adhere the sentiment and 3 butterflies to card.

His Grace / Thinking Of You & Easter Cards

I love the floral images in the His Grace Stamp Set. You definitely need to use the Stamparatus to line it up correctly, but that was easy to do. The colors for these cards are Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green; what a great combination!

His Grace Both.jpg

Take a look at the video to see how to stamp this with the Stamparatus!

Using the sentiment from Rooted in Nature, I made a great Thinking Of You Card. The flowers were colored with a Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Marker and the leaves with a Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Marker. You can get a combo pack or just the singles. I used the Color Lifter to do some cleanup. All these choices are listed in the Product at the end of the post for easy shopping.

His Grace Thinking Of You.jpg

This card was the reason I purchased this set. It’s a beautiful Easter Card. The card is cut as a top-folding but I have it made as a side-folding card. Watch the video to see what I mean.

Card Dimensions:

  • Highland Heather Card Base - 4 1/4 x 8 1/2, scored at 5 1/2 OR

All Adorned - Fun FREE Stamp Set During Sale-A-Bration!

All Adorned Card2.jpg

This was a fun card to make with the All Adorned Stamp Set. You can get this for FREE with a $50 purchase through March 31, 2019. I love the combination of Tranquil Tide and Mint Macaron. Just a touch of Fresh Fig pulls it all together.

All Adorned Stamp Set.jpg

The dimensions are:

  • Mint Macaron Card Base - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4

  • Fresh Fig Layer - 5 1/8 x 3 7/8

  • Very Vanilla Layer - 5 x 3 3/4

All Adorned Supplies.jpg

First stamp the sentiment with the 3 hearts below so you get an idea of where to stamp the images.

All Adorned1.jpg

Next stamp the smaller image with Tranquil Tide to create at pattern, leaving a little space for the second image.

All Adorned Step2.jpg

I like stamping the darker image first with this type of stamp so you can see through to stamp the second image. Line up the dark dots in the center of the circles.

All Adorned stamp.jpg

Stamp the second image with Mint Macaron Ink. If its doesn’t line up perfectly, that’s ok. When it’s all finished, it won’t be noticeable.

All Adorned3.jpg

I added some Fresh Fig Ruffled Ribbon to the side. No need for a bow with this ribbon. It’s pretty enough to stand on its own.

All Adorned Card.jpg

Here’s a look at the inside. The corner stamped image is so pretty.

Six Super Simple Greeting Cards

Using the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards along with the coordinating Cards & Envelopes, I was able to quickly make these six cards. I love the colors and that it coordinates with the other products in the Happiness Blooms Suite.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Set.jpg

Watch the video to see all six cards. I add embellishments at the end!

I used a 4x6 and a 3x4 Memories & More card for this one. The smaller card was backed with a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 piece of Night of Navy Cardstock and then popped up with Dimensionals. One of the stickers was added below the sentiment.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card1.jpg

The 3x4 Memories & More card was backed with a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 layer of Pineapple Punch Cardstock and popped up with Dimensionals. Some of the Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots were added to finish it off.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card2.jpg

This is probably the most complicated card but believe me, it was easy. A piece of Pineapple Punch Ribbon was adhered around the 4x6 Memories & More Card and then attached to the card base. I stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment with Night Of Navy Ink on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and then punched it with the Pretty Label Punch. A second label was punched in Night of Navy and then cut in half and adhered to the white label to give it a background layer. This was attached using Dimensionals and then a bow was attached with a glue dot. Some of the stickers were added and then some Pineapple Punch Enamel Dots added to the centers to make them pop.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card3.jpg

This is one of the smaller notecards. I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set with Lovely Lipstick Ink. A few Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots were added to step it up a little.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card4.jpg

This was really easy; just a 3x4 Memories & More Card attached to the small card base.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card5.jpg

For this one I just attached a 4x6 Memories & More Card on the larger card base.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card6.jpg

Floral Romance Feminine Birthday Card

The Floral Romance Designer Series Paper is just gorgeous! Some of the sheets are vellum and I love the floral design on the one I used on these cards. I backed the vellum with Whisper White to make it brighter.

Floral Romance Collage.jpg

The video below will walk you through step by step on how to make this card.

The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set. That’s a good one to have for birthday sentiments. I cut a Whisper White label using the Stitched Label Framelits and then stamped the sentiment in Fresh Fig. The Frosted Flower Embellishments add a nice touch to bring it all together. I love how everything coordinates so well with Stampin’ Up! products.

Floral Romance Birthday card.jpg

The inside sentiment is from Forever Lovely. The stems and leaves were stamped with Pear Pizzaz Ink and the flowers with Fresh Fig Ink. These images are from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set.

St. Patrick's Day - Good Luck Card

When I first saw this Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper, I thought about St. Patrick’s Day and shamrocks. I knew I had to make some sort of shamrock card with it. Does that ever happen to you? You see something and immediately start thinking about how you are going to use it? Well, here’s what I came up with!

Shamrock Card2.jpg

You can watch the video below to see how I pieced it all together.

Going through my framelits I found the perfect heart to make a shamrock with from the Support Ribbon set. I cut out three hearts from Call Me Clover Cardstock and then pieced them together to make the shamrock. I cut a stem freehand. To cover the center, I added a Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot and then adhered 3 dots at the bottom right to pull it altogether.

Shamrock Card.jpg

Measurements:
