Happy Home – Stampin’ Up!

Happy Home – Stampin’ Up!

The Happy Home stamp set has been sitting in my stamp stash since November.  I believe this was a stamp set that I had received for free at one of our OnStage events.  The key phrase here- sitting on my shelf! What the What?

 

It’s was only discovered to be untouched as I went through pulling my retired stamp sets.  I took a peek at it and could only shake my head.

 

You see, I have a problem.

It’s a true stamp addiction.

I have to have all of the cuteness.  Then I get the said cuteness and like a true hoarder I put it in a safe place only to be found months later.

Happy Home, Stampin' Up!

You can click on the image above and see the wood mount bundle for this product.  

This set comes in a bundle that is pretty stinkin’ awesome.  Now the Happy Home stamp set will retire on May 31st.  The Hearth & Home Thinlits Die will be in the NEW catalog.  This little thinlit is a FUN and also versatile.

I kept the card simple and only added a few layers (well maybe more than a few-I got carried away!) of cardstock and ribbon.  Both of the ribbons that I used are also retiring.  AHHHH.  These were my MOST used ribbons- Venetian Lace and the Chevron Natural ribbon.

I wanted to add a little texture to the card so I used the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Folder.

If you look closely you will also notice that the piece that I textured embossed is also one of the new In Colors.  That Flirty Flamingo coordinates perfectly with the other pink tones I have- Blushing Bride and Watermelon Wonder.  Oh so PRETTY!

One of my new crafting habits is cutting small greetings like you see above and placing next to a focal image on my projects.  Well, it seems like I’ve been doing this a lot.  I see a trend anyways… I kinda like it.

The coloring for this card was easily done with a Sponge Dauber for the tree.  I used a Blender Pen for the grass and flowers.

Picture Perfect Rose

Picture Perfect Rose

I did it again! I pulled out my Picture Perfect stamp set and this time worked with the rose image.

 

Today’s card is sweet and simple and involves a perfect little rose.  It also has a new In Color used- Flirty Flamingo!

Rose, Picture Perfect, Stampin' Up!

 

I’ve played with this rose image many times with many different color combinations and I have to say this was my favorite.

The only color not listed above is the Flirty Flamingo.  

Tips & Tricks

  • The rose image has 3 steps to stamp.  The first image I used Blushing Bride.  Second was Flirty Flamingo, and third Watermelon Wonder.
  • The Vellum leaves were die cut using the retiring Bouquet Bigz L Die Cut.

  • The greeting was stamped and then die cut using the Banners Framelits.
  • The striped designer paper is from the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper and then matted on a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock.
