Happy Celebrations-Artisan Hop
Happy Artisan hop day. That means lots of inspiring projects are about to be shared using the Happy Celebrations and Cool Treats stamp set.
I’m over the moon to share another project using the Happy Celebrations stamp set. I have enjoyed this stamp set and coordinating embossing folders more than I ever thought I would.
So Very Happy
Actually, I’m sitting at Starbucks as I write this post and I’m not so very happy. I’m outside sitting at the tables because it’s a comfortable 80 degrees and no humidity (that’s a miracle) and inside the Starbucks, it feels like -30! I didn’t bring a jacket so I figured sitting outside would be fine. That’s until I started feeling ants biting. I’m guessing this is a no win situation… however I’ll make it a winner because the weather is gorgeous.
Okay, back to happy.
This card really made me happy because I love Watercolor Paper. There is lots of watercolor paper on this card and a few other fun details. Let’s get started. I’m excited to share with you.
Tips & Tricks
- I started this card using a piece of Watercolor Paper 3-3/4″ x 5-1/2″. Using my Aqua Painter, I added a quick watercolor wash in the center using Rich Razzleberry ink.
- Using the Stitched Shapes Framelits, I cut 3 different size circles then watercolored each using Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay, and Old Olive inks. WHOA! These colors knock my socks off. I love how they blend. Each of the circles was attached to the main Watercolor Paper.
- One of the details I fell in love with on this card is the doily. We all know how much I love the little details, but this doily peeking above the circle makes me squeal.
- The sweet scallop edge comes from the Cutie Pie Thinlits which is being discontinued. I’ve loved this thinlit and mostly used it for the scallop. Make sure to grab it if you love it. It’s only available until the end of the month.
- The best news about the Happy Celebrations stamp set… it’s being carried over into the NEW catalog.
- Notice how that small strip of Basic Black cardstock really pops next to these colors? Love that.

The Last Details
Lastly, I had a few details to finish the card. Sequins are one of my favorite quick and easy embellishments and don’t forget the Enamel Shapes. I love that our Enamel Shapes coordinate with our colors. One more thing, I love how that little clip is holding on to my greeting.
