I was inspired by the card in the Annual Catalog with sponged clouds. I made a mask with the cloud edge die and sponged some cute clouds after die cutting the HAPPY out of the white panel. Here is a video of how easy it was to make this card:
Poppy Parade Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side
Balmy Blue: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White: 3-3/4″ x 5″ outside, 4″ x 5-1/4″ inside
I just love that HAPPY die! It is so fun to play with!
I finally cut into my gorgeous Stampin’ Up ! Rainbow Glimmer Paper!
You can use larger pieces of the Rainbow Glimmer Paper for a dramatic ombre effect or use smaller pieces of a specific color—it’s like having a multipack of colors on two sheets. I used the Glimmer Paper with the Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Bundle to make this fun, easy card.
I cut my Rainbow Glimmer Paper to 3″ x 4″ so I got 9 panels out of one sheet! I placed the panel behind the two HAPPY words that I die cut out of the card base with the Happy Dies. From another project, I had the lower portion of the Glimmer that has the yellow, orange and green hues so I die cut the balloons and added simple white strings and a bow. The die cut that holds the sentiment comes from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Labels Dies.
I am smitten with the NEW Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Bundle! It is so cute! I loved working with the NEW In Colors Just Jade and Magenta Madness with the coordinating In Color Enamel Dots.
So, here is the card I made AFTER making my video…when I was cleaning up after the video, I saw how much better the card looked with the cardstock shadow being a different color than the Designer Series Paper! Hmmm…why didn’t I do that initially?
Things that make you go-hmmm?
Well, here is the video for you showing how to easily make this card:
*For the “birthday” on the Marvelous Magenta card, I used the word bubble die from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Thoughts Dies and cut off the little tail on the lower right side:)
The shadow is still cool but so much better with the contrast, am I right????
The So Much Happy Bundle has versatile sentiments in it, not just for birthdays…
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
