Tomorrow is a BIG day in the Stampin’ Up!® world! The new 2022/2023 Annual Catalog begins and I can not wait. As a Demonstrator I was able to order a few of the products in this catalog but there are so many more I want. My list is very, very long!
One of the products I could order was the Bottled Happiness Bundle. This bundle includes the stamp set of the same name and the Vintage Bottle Punch. If you order both of these items using the bundle item number, you can save 10%. To be honest, I did not purchase the Bottled Happiness stamp set. I signed up for a online zoom meeting called OnTour with Stampin’ Up!® and they sent me this stamp set as part of the registration. I was happy to receive it since it was on my list anyway. Therefore, all I had to do was order the coordinating punch.
To make this card, I first stamped the flowers in Pale Papaya ink on a piece of Basic White card stock. Then I stamped the leaves in Granny Apple Green. I love that the flowers and the leaves are two different stamps making it easier to use two different colors. Yes, you can color a stamp using multiple colors but putting ink on a stamp using an ink pad is a lot easier. After I stamped the leaves and flowers I stamped the bottle in Balmy Blue ink. The Vintage Bottle Punch can be used with the taller bottle in the set. I layered this on top of a piece of Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green card stock.
After this, I cut out the word “thanks” using the Amazing Thanks dies in Granny Apple Green card stock and adhered it to the card using Multipurpose Glue. A liquid glue is much easier to adhere small or thin items. Lastly I ran a Basic White card base through my Cut & Emboss Machine using the Painted Texture 3D embossing Folder. I thought it made it look like the flowers were a piece of art hanging on a stucco wall.
Lastly I added some Elegant Faceted Gems to the centers of some of the flowers.
I am not allowed to post links before the catalog goes live. I will try to post them tomorrow.
On a side note, today is my eldest son, David’s birthday. David is an amazing man. He is one of the most generous people I know. He has a beautiful wife and two adorable girls. I am very, very proud of him. Happy birthday, Big Guy!
