Stampin’ Up! Abstract Beauty DSP B’day

Hello Folks! I’ve been knocked sideways by a cold – slept nearly all of Sunday. Made a card for Monday’s post on Monday… here it is almost 4 PM on Monday – so it will go out properly Tuesday morning. 🙂

Abstract Beauty DSP B’day.1

I happen to love plaids and sometimes some of the ‘other sides’ of designer series papers are more appealing to me. The flower patterns are pretty, but this pattern really struck me. This is 4×6 paper to begin with, so I cut it down to 4 x 5 1/4, adhered a Basic White panel to the back for strength then used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to do the work. I used the 4th &n 5th rectangles to cut the plaid panels and saved the border that was removed. You’ll see why soon enough. I stamped the sentiment on a Basic White scrap with balmy Blue ink using the new Artfully Layered stamp set and die cut it with another of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. At this point I adhered the plaid pieces by putting dimensionals on the back and attaching them to a Just Jade card front. The card needed something else. Since I had this new stamp set out, I also pulled the coordinating dies: Tropical Layers Dies and some Pear Pizzazz scrap and cut this fine frond. I adhered it right on the plaid front with dabs of liquid glue, and added all the little die cut pieces too and liked it. The sentiment panel got more dimensionals and was added on. Voila – love the look.

Remember, I saved that plaid piece that was removed when I die cut the rectangles. Here’s what I did with it.

Abstract Beauty DSP B’day.2

I adhered the left-over piece to a panel of Basic White, then stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink. And done… The best part, this could so easily be a masculine card ~ and it’s going to be! I have a twin brother and our birthday is in February, this is for him :O) And since he doesn’t read my blog, I can share it early 👍

The envelope… I used another of the Abstract Beauty 4×6 DSP pieces for the envelope flap; adhered & trimmed to fit. For the front I stamped this interesting word stamp from the Artfully Layered stamp set in Balmy Blue ink.

Abstract Beauty B’day.4

Stampin’ Yp! Dahlia Days

Happy Sunday! I’ve been “under the weather” of late ~ substantial cold, and it’s taken a wee bit out of me… I played in my craft room yesterday and made this super feminine card for a friend of mine. She brought hubby and me a cake & a container of whipped cream cheese – yum. And when one isn’t feeling their best, there’s simply nothing like a hot tea & cake to the rescue. Makes me feel better just because of her gesture. So today’s card is for her.

Dahlia Days.1

It begins with a Basic White Thick card base with a layer of Gorgeous Grape just a wee smaller adhered to the card front, then this Marbelous 6×6 DSP (FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 order ~ this one is a mix of colors: Highland Heather & Gorgeous Grape) adhered to that, and just a wee bit smaller still. I added a small strip of Fresh Freesia card stock just for a highlight. I die cut the gorgeous overlay from Basic White card stock and attached it with dabs of liquid glue. You COULD adhere an adhesive sheet to the basic white panel so it wouldn’t need glue, but I didn’t do that here. I added several Pastel Pearls in Highland Heather & Gorgeous Grape, then a few Metallic Pearls in silver. The final touch is this wonderful bow using the Open Weave Ribbon in Fresh Freesia. The more I look at this, the more I like it.

Dahlia Days, inside

For the inside, I stamped this beautiful image of a dahlia bouquet with the lines on a Basic white panel. This is really meant for a tag, ‘cuz there’s a die cut for it, but I wanted to use it this way today. :O) It was stamped in Highland Heather ink. The words come from the Dahlia Days stamp set as well and they are stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink. I mounted this with liquid glue to another panel of Gorgeous Grape card stock then right into the card. And the card was done!

This particular stamp set is a Distinctive stamp, which indicates it has more ‘layers’ in the stamp, giving it more dimension. It shows more clearly on the envelope – let’s take a look.

Envelope front: Dahlia Days

The imagery just makes this dahlia seem almost real – as though you could reach out and touch it. Above is my envelope front, and for the flap, I covered it in more of the Marbelous 6×6 DSP :O)

Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

January is moving right along… the winter cold seems here to stay… not unusual for this time of year. :O) Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! it’s always fun to see what the other team members haver chosen and how fabulously creative they are.

We have an exciting color theme for our hop today and I’ve chosen to use maybe, every color and more.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop January 3- Color Challenge- Pick At Least 3 Real Red Petal Pink HighlandHeather Heather Highland Pool Party Granny Apple Green'
Sending Hugs Bundle – Happy Inkin’ Th Blog Hop

This new bundle just arrived Tuesday and I couldn’t wait to play with it. After stamping with Memento Black ink on a Basic White panel, I chose to color the design with Stampin’ Blends using all the colors listed in the challenge: Real red (I used a marker for the berries), Pool Party for the sentiment, Granny Apple Green for all the leaves, and Petal Pink &Flirty Flamingo for extra definition and finally Highland Heather. This became my main card front. I stamped another of the same image on Basic White and die cut it with the Layering Hugs Dies, then colored with the same colors mentioned above. This panel became the top panel on dimensionals. I also die cut the single letters using another one of the dies, from Pool Party card stock and adhered over the letters in the panel. The die cut letters are smaller, can you tell? And I off-set them to make it look as though there were a shadow.I stamped the word BIRTHDAY in Memento ink on a scrap of Basic White and die cut it with this tiny banner. I added a 2021-2023 In Color Jewel to the left of the word, put dimensionals on the back and placed it. Then I added more of the same 2021-2023 In Color Jewels on the top right and bottom left. To me, it brings all the colors together. It’s a very spring-like card :O) I mounted this on a slightly larger Black piece, put dimensionals on the back and attached it to the Pool Party card base. And the front was done!

Sending Hugs Bundle – Happy Inkin’ Th Blog Hop, inside

For the inside of the card, I stamped this super cute flower three times in Memento Black ink, then colored it with Stampin’ Blends: Granny Apple Green for the leaves, Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo for the flower. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue – love the simplicity since the front is busy.

Sending Hugs Bundle – Happy Inkin’ Th Blog Hop

For the envelope I took the leaf stamp from Sending Hugs stamp set and stamped it randomly on the flap in Memento Black ink, then only once on the envelope front. Again, I like the simplicity of the envelope since the card is busy with color.

Products are listed below so feel free to order away :O) If you do not have a demonstrator and need an Annual Catalog please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. AND… I have the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog and the 4 January to 28 February 2022 Sale-a-bration catalogs and can send those as well! When ordering, please also use current host code: R6D2 7PHD.

Stampin’ Up! Hey Sports Fan and Sports Event Dies B’day

Hello folks! How’s your day? It’s r-e-a-l-l-y cold here in central Jersey, brrr. Our Christmas decorations are finally down and put away. I resisted for as long as I could :O) Needles, needles everywhere from the tree. I bet I vacuumed at least four times, ‘cuz I kept finding more needles. 🥴 Those are the hazards of a fresh cut tree. And I know that.

Today’s card is for our grandson who turns 14 very soon. He’s a hunk of a young man, 8th grade and I really did NOT know what to do… I looked through the new DSP and found… Hey Sports Fan and made it work. I hope he likes it.

Hey Sports Fan DSP & Sports Event Dies B’day.1

The background DSP is from this Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP. The ‘ticket and flag banner are die cut from one of the papers using the Sports Event Dies. The stars I fussy cut and added Shimmer Crystal Effects for a bit more shine and dimension. You can clearly see I die cut the ticket twice: once from the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP, and the background for that from Night of Navy card stock. I cut the Night of Navy piece in half and adhered it to the Hey There ticket with liquid glue. I added the star with a dimensional once it was dry from the Crystal Effects. The flag banner was die cut from a piece of the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP, then an additional piece was added die cut in Bumblebee card stock, I took the Wink of Stella pen and covered the word with it to extra glam.

Hey Sports Fan DSP & Sports Event Dies.2

I put dimensionals on the back and set it aside. I die cut a strip of stars from another piece of the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 and adhered it to a slightly wider strip of Night of Navy. I stamped the ‘YOU’ using the Slim Slayings stamp set, by just inking the word in Evening Evergreen ink and stamping it on a scrap of Very Vanilla . I fussy cut around it, making it a rectangle. I also used Wink of Stella on the letters to give them more importance.

Time to put this card and it’s parts together…

  • card base is Evening Evergreen 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 14
  • Night of Navy 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP 4 x 5 14 adhered to Night of Navy panel. Put dimensionals on the back and add to card base.
  • Adhere the ‘Hey There’ ticket with liquid glue
  • Add the die cut flag banner with dimensionals
  • Add the star strip with liquid glue 1/2″ from bottom
  • Cut a length of Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack in Real red and add to the back of the YOU rectangle. Put dimensionals on the back and add just above the star strip
  • Add three Matte Decorative Dots for more notice. (I just realized these dots are retired as of Jan 4, 2022.)So instead… with Blends, color three Pearl Basic Jewels in Dark Poppy Parade, let dry and add them!
  • Card front is done!
Hey Sorts Fan DSP B’day, inside.3

For the inside, I die cut another flag banner from the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP and adhered it to a Very Vaniila piece 4 x 5 1/4). I stamped the sentiment using the Special Moments stamps set (NEW) making sure to bend it to follow the curve of the flag. This was stamped in Poppy Parade ink. I cut a length of stars from another piece of the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 and adhered it 1/2: from the bottom, then added the panel to the inside of the card. I added another larger fussy cut star (coated in Crystal Shimmery Effects) to the inside of the card, VOILA! the card is done!

For the envelope…

Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 DSP.4

The envelope flap got another piece of Hey Sports FAN 12 x 12 DSP. For the front, I stamped the uber cute sentiment in Poppy Parade ink using the Special Moments stamp set ~ and the card was d-o-n-e… I’m hoping our grandson will like this!

And that was it! It’s a fun, cheerful card ~ and I hope he likes it.

Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered Fun Fold Thank You

Hello again! It’s Saturday… and I hope you have a day to relax a bit from the stresses of everyday obligations, AND an opportunity to play in your crafty place. :O) I’m sharing a fun fold today, an uneven gate fold card that is super easy to do. But first I want to share some snow photos of yesterday’s storm. We got about 6-8″ (it was hard to tell because it compacted ‘cuz it was a bit wet, not fluffy) and it was like waking in a wintry wonderland ~ and it kept coming for several more hours. ❄️

Charlie Brown tree on patio table
Kousa Dogwood in our back yard
Spruce in our front yard

Luckily our neighbor has a snowblower & cleared our driveway – so grateful ‘cuz the snow was heavy!

OK, the card… this goes out today to hubby’s sister who lives in Hawaii. She sent us homemade Baklava! This new DSP and coordinating stamp/ dies seemed perfect for her.

Artfully Layered Thank You.1

It’s obvious this is a lopsided, or perhaps we should say, uneven gate fold card. By scoring the 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 card base at 2 3/4 & 7, this makes it uneven and just a bit different. Aren’t these fun dies too? The larger almost looks like the top of a pineapple :O) (IDEA!) It was die cut from Pear Pizzazz card stock using the Tropical Layers dies (10% off when purchasing the bundle!), then sponged on the edges with a sponge dauber and Old Olive ink. The front frond was die cut with Old Olive card stock and the veining was die cut with Just Jade card stock. Great color combination, don’t you think? The DSP layers are… Artfully Composed DSP – all of these products are new in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog. And what about that fun edge die! Yep – it’s from the same Tropical Layers die set. That was die cut in Basic Black card stock, same as the card base. I also used the Tailored Tag Punch to create the end for the thank you banner. I’ve also used Pale Papaya card stock for the backing of the Artfully Composed DSP. And the sentiment – yep, from the same Artfully Layered stamp set. I used the Classic Matte Dots in White to accent the sentiment on the front.

Let’s take a peek at the inside…

Artfully Layered thank you.2, inside

Do you see the fun hash marks? That’s from the Tropical Layers Dies! While it cut through the paper, it doesn’t have an edge to make a cutout. It’s perfect for adding texture and a little fun to a card. The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink and comes from the Artfully Layered stamp set.

Here’s what I did with the envelope…

Artfully Layered thank you.3

Here I used more of the Artfully Composed DSP for the envelope flap. For the front of the envelope I stamped this fun frond in Just Jade ink using the Artfully Layered stamp set. It adds to the tropical look of the other leaves on the DSP :O)

I can’t wait to see what you do with this fun stamp & die set AND the gorgeous DSP – and how you use this uneven gate fold idea to make it your own. Please do share with me!

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home & Honeybee Home Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop January 6-Sketch Challenge'

Oh I DO have fun participating in this weekly hop with other team mates! My card today is based on the sketch as you see it on the left. I’ve used the lovely Heart & Home DSP to ground it all together. For extra texture I’ve used the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. And for the sentiment and bee I’ve used the Honeybee Home stamp set with coordinating Honeybee Blooms Dies. For the sentiment banner I used another new product from the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog called Bouquet of Love Dies. LOVE this banner! For a bit of glam I added the Champagne Rhinestones to the banner.

Honeybee Home w/ Heart & Home DSP

This card is pretty easy… Heart & Home 12 x 12 DSP adhered to Pale Papaya then to the card base of Basic Gray. Run a panel of Cinnamon Cider through the Hive 3D EF and adhere to a slightly larger piece of Pale Papaya. Add to the card front with dimensionals. Stamp the sentiment using the Honeybee Home stamp set and Basic Gray ink on a piece of Pale Papaya, then die cut with the banner die from the Bouquet of Love Dies. Add to a piece of Basic Gray then adhere, centering, with dimensionals. Stamp the super cute bee in Basic Gray ink using the Honeybee Home stamp set and die cut with the coordinating Honeybee Blooms Dies. Attach with dimensionals and the card front is complete.

Honeybee Home, inside

For the inside… I used the Honeybee Home stamp set to stamp the flower randomly on a Very Vanilla panel in Basic Gray ink. This was adhered to Pale Papaya then to the inside of card base and voila…

Honeybee Home w/ Heart & Home DSP

For the Very Vanilla envelope, more of the same Heart & Home 12 x 12 DSP to the flap and the same flower was stamped in Basic Gray on the envelope front, twice. The thing about this card is it could be used as a thank you, a happy birthday, a thinking of you, just about anything ~ because the front of the sentiment is so general; friendly but general. Versatility is key!

OK… I reminded you the catalog is now live – products are listed below so feel free to order away :O) If you do not have a demonstrator and need an Annual Catalog please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. AND… I have the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog and the 4 January to 28 February 2022 Sale-a-bration catalogs and can send those as well! When ordering, please also use current host code: R6D2 7PHD.

Stampin’ Up! Rainbow of Happiness with Sunshine & Rainbows

Good 2022! It’s snowing here in New Jersey… temps dropped from 68 degrees yesterday to 26 degrees. YIKES, that’s a big drop in temps. The other day I promised to show more of the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP (FREE with Sale-a-bration which begins Jan 4!) and I’ve paired it with the coordinating Rainbow of Happiness bundle. So cheerful & fun! AND… today being Jan 4, 2022 – you can get this NOW… ‘cuz the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog has gone L-I-V-E! WooHoo! Today’s card is another thank you card.

Rainbow of Happiness w/ Sunshine & Rainbows.1

Isn’t this fun? There are so many cute stamps & dies in this Rainbow of Happiness bundle! Here’s what I did… I took a Sunshine & Rainbows 6×6 DSP and cut it by marking 1″ over on two opposite corners., then turning the paper to the left and doing the same. Then I cut those pieces along the lines. The green piece of DSP is the result of those cuts. LOVE the cut! I adhered that to a panel of Basic White cut 4 x 5 1/4. I took another piece of the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP cut 2 3/4 x 3 1/2 and lined it up with the right angle of the green panel and matching it along the bottom of that same green panel of DSP. I adhered that piece to the Basic White panel. There was extra overlapping pieces & I removed those so it was even with the Basic White panel. I then took a piece of Bermuda Bay card stock and with the Brilliant Rainbows Dies, die cut the fun pattern of small rainbows. I adhered that across the bottom of the panel with dots of liquid glue. (I KEPT all the little die cut pieces to use for the inside 😏) Using the Rainbows & Sunshine stamp set, I stamped the design on the Basic White piece: So Saffron ink, Pool Party ink, Misty Moonlight ink. With Misty Moonlight Ink, I stamped a portion of the sentiment -you make me – on another piece of the Sunshine & Rainbows 6×6 DSP & fussy cut it. I stamped the remaining word – happy – on another portion of the same DSP and die cut it with one of the cloud dies in the Brilliant Rainbows Dies. Put these on dimensionals and add to the card front.For an added touch I adhered three Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels near the sentiment. These are a NEW ITEM in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog that goes live Jan 4. This panel was now ready to adhere to a slightly larger piece – So Saffron – with liquid glue. Dimensionals were placed on the back and the card front was done.

For the inside…

Rainbow of Happiness, inside

I die cut the bottom of this Basic White piece with the same rainbows die from the Brilliant Rainbows Dies. I added this to the inside of the card base with liquid glue then attached what was left to the bottom. Remember all those Bermuda Bay pieces from the card front? Add those with liquid glue and you have this fun rainbow effect. Stamp the sentiment (thank you) in Misty Moonlight ink. And Voila! the inside is done!!

The envelope…

For the envelope flap, I attached various scraps from the original piece of 6×6 DSP. For the envelope front, I stamped the lines in Pool Party ink and the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink. Finis! Can’t wait to send this fun thank you card! I can’t wait to see what YOU do with this fun paper & bundle.

OK… I reminded you the catalog is now live – products are listed below so you order away :O) If you do not have a demonstrator and need an Annual Catalog please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. AND… I have the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog and the 4 January to 28 February 2022 Sale-a-bration catalogs and can send those as well! When ordering, please also use current host code: R6D2 7PHD.

Stampin’ Up! New Horizons 6×6 DSP with After the Storm Sympathy

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Did you stay up until midnight to bring in the new year? Here’s to a year of better health for all. Jan. 4 means the new Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog goers live for customers. Today I’m showcasing the New Horizons 6×6 DSP that is in this catalog. It is stunning ~ so different. I’ve created two sympathy cards with this DSP: same format but rearranged somewhat. Let’s take a peek.

New Horizons 6×6 DSP

Isn’t this DSP stunning? These two cards have been created for a woman and her adult daughter whose husband and father passed away just prior to Christmas. He loved to paint and the family loves color, mostly purple and pinks, and this seemed perfect for this. The sentiment on the card at left comes from the After the Storm stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a Basic White strip then punched with the Label Me Fancy Punch. Love the fonts in this set!

Left card: after adhering the DSP to Fresh Freesia card stock, I wrapped a length of Open Weave Ribbon in Soft Succulent around both pieces & tied a knot. I then attached the sentiment with dimensionals & added three Garden Gems in green to the banner. This panel was then added to a prepared card base with dimensionals: Thick Basic White with Blackberry Bliss adhered with liquid glue. The card front was now complete!

Right card: DSP was added to Blackberry Bliss card stock with liquid glue; wrapped with a length of Open Weave Ribbon in Fresh Freesia and tied with a knot. The sentiment was stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink on a Basic White piece using the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set. It was die cut with the Layering Circles Dies and three Garden Gems in the green were added. This was adhered to a scalloped layer of Blackberry Bliss die cut with the Layering Circles Dies. This sentiment circle was attached with dimensionals over the ribbon. I also stamped three birds in Evening Evergreen ink using the After the Storm stamp set. For the background layer, I stamped the large clouds from the After the Storm stamp set, mimicking the pattern on the DSP: Polished Pink at the top, then Blackberry Bliss followed by Evening Evergreen and finally Misty Moonlight. Here’s a photo of that panel.

After the Storm stamp set

This panel was then added to the Soft Succulent card base and the top panels added with dimensionals – and this card front was complete.

For the insides of these two cards…

I used After the Storm stamp set for both of these cards on the inside: Blackberry Bliss and Bumblebee inks for the card on the left; Polished Pink, Bumblebee and Blackberry Bliss for the card on the right. The birds were stamped in Misty Moonlight on this card.

For the envelopes I cut a panel each of the Blackberry Bliss and Soft Succulent card stocks and ran them through the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and adhered them to the envelope flaps.

Two very similar cards but different and I love them both. The DSP looks like a water scene to me, which is perfect since the man who passed away was a sailor :O)

Stampin’ Up! Rainbow of Happiness Fun Fold Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

This is the last Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop for 2021… and I cannot believe it. Where did 2021 go? Despite all the challenges during the year, it has gone F-A-S-T and I think there may have been a couple of times when it felt as though I was off the ‘merry-go-’round’. Lately I have been computer challenged. I don’t know what went wrong b ut I was locked out of my computer. I could text and that was about it. Wierd… but now, well, it seems to be ok again. Let’s hope for that!

Today’s hop is all about fun folds. Let’s take a look at what we’ve got.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop December 30 Theme Challenge Fun Fold'

Rainbow of happiness Fun Fold.1

I had fun creating today’s card. I haven’t been in my craft room for a couple of days; we had family here and my craft room is also a bedroom :O). Needless to say, the room was being used by our granddaughter and we loved having her here – and the rest of the family too BTW! but it did limit my productivity :o) Having the computer go on the blitz just prior to their arrival didn’t help matters any. 😩

The theme as you saw above is a fun fold – and this is a super easy one. It’s similar to a card within a card, with a hole in the middle of the card front.

As I said, super easy to create.

  • Card base is So Saffron card stock 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
  • Designer Series Paper is Sunshine & Rainbows 6 x 6 DSP cut to 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 adhered directly to the card front. (This DSP is free with a $50 order beginning Jan 4 from the new Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog) hint, hint.
  • Die cut the center with the Tailor Made Tag Dies. (You could use the Layering Circles Dies and a different stamp set for a completely different look.)
  • Die cut the cute rainbow & tag using the Brilliant Rainbow Dies. Reserve the cutouts for the rainbow in this small die!
  • Cut a panel of Basic White card stock 5 1/4 x 8 1/4 and score at 4. (This will become your inner panels with the fold on the right.)
  • Place the ‘liner’ on the inside of the card without adhering it to the inside of the card. Adhere the ‘tag’ to the ‘front’ of the inner card piece. Remember, the inner liner fold is on the right. Decorate.
    • Adhere the tag cut from the card front using the Tailor Made Tag Dies. (I did this by laying the inner panel on the inside of the card, closed the card front over this [the die cut opening will show]) and attached the die cut with Stampn’ Seal. This will allow the tag to ‘fit in’ the die cut of the card front :O) Add the ribbon by tying it in a knot and cutting fairly short so the card easily opens/ closes. The ribbon is Just Jade Open Weave Ribbon.
    • Stamp the sentiment from the Rainbow of Happiness stamp set in Magenta Madness ink on a Basic White panel. Die cut with the small rainbow ‘tag’ die from the coordinating Brilliant Rainbow dies. Reserve the rainbow cutouts!
    • Adhere this stamped rainbow ‘tag’ with dimensionals to the die cut tag with the DSP on it. Color the rainbow cutouts with Stampin Blends: Dark Magenta Madness, Dark So Saffron, Dark Pool Party and Petal Pink Marker for the smallest. Adhere behind the rainbow die cut with just dabs of liquid glue. I used tweezers to hold and place easily.
  • Stamp randomly around the larger tag with the thank you stamp from Rainbow of Happiness stamp set in various ink colors: So Saffron, Petal Pink, Pool Party, and Magenta Madness.
  • Open the card insert and stamp the rainbow: Magenta Madness & So Saffron inks – of course using the Rainbow of Happiness stamp set.
  • Stamp the rainbow pattern in Pool Party ink and the sentiment in Petal Pink ink.
  • Stamp the hearts from the Rainbow of Happiness stamp set in Magenta Madness ink.
  • Adhere this panel to the inside of the card, lining up the card front tag hole, then closing the card to adhere. Works like a charm! And voila… the card is finished!

For the envelope, I stamped the lines in Pool Party ink and the sentiment in So Saffron ink. I added more Sunshine & Rainbow 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap and called it done.

Rainbow of Happiness.4

Here’s a photo of the stamp set and coordinating dies, plus both sides of the DSP. This is such fun paper… lively colors and fun designs. I have several thank you cards to make and think this stamp set/ dies/ DSP are going to fit that need!

Such fun patterns!
