Stampin Up Happiness Abounds

I was finally able to get the ladies from my old stamp camp over to the cottage for a little food, fun and stamping.  It was so nice to see them again and we had a great time.

This is one of the cards we made that night.  I used the Hues of Happiness Suite that is in the Stampin’ Up! 2022/2023 Annual Catalog.  This suite includes the stamp set called Happiness Abounds, the coordinating dies called Blossoming Happiness, Hues Of Happiness Designer and Glossy Dots Assortment.  You can order everything in the suite using one item number or you can order items separately.  If you use the suite number or the bundle number you will save 10% on the stamps and dies.

One of the reasons I wanted this suite is because of the Designer Series Paper.  It is gorgeous!  One side has flower designs and the other side has some beautiful abstract colors.  Plus the Blossoming Happiness dies coordinate with the DSP too because you can use the dies to cut out some of the leaves and flowers.  In addition to this, the dies have some great extras.  There is one die that cuts out a pattern and there are two dies that cut out straight lines of dots or dashes to make it look like you ripped the paper out of a notebook.  Plus there are five great sentiments included in the stamp set.

This was a very easy card to make.  I first layered a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of the Designer Paper on a Basic White card base.  Next, I cut the design out of a 2.25″ x 5.25″ piece of Basic White card stock.  See how the dies cut out some of the leaves and only partially cut out others?  Next, I used the dies in the set to cut out the leaves and a flower.  I adhered them to the card using Dimensionals.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink onto a 1/2″ wide piece of Pool Party card stock.

I love how Stampin’ Up! does all the work and makes it so easy to create a beautiful card.
