So Much Happy bundle

SU! So Much Happy

Hello All! Today’s card is so bright and cheerful, it’s b ound to make the receiver happy about their birthday. Let’s take a look…

So Much Happy – #1

It begins with Artistry Blooms DSP and the Happy Dies. I especially like using this on an angle; then stamp your sentiment. Here I used Night of Navy ink, but because of the balloon colors – Gorgeous Grape ink would have worked just as well. I then stamped and die cut the balloons: Gorgeous Grape ink, Coastal Cabana ink, and the far right is Pacific Point ink. I adhered Linen Thread with dimensionals and placed the balloons accordingly. I definitely wanted one loose! I used just a dot of liquid glue to hold two of the Linen Threads together.

Adhere this completed DSP to a panel of Whisper White cs, then again to another panel – this time Coastal Cabana cs. Place dimensionals on the back of the Coastal Cabana and adhere to a Thick Whisper White card base. And the card front is done!

For the inside…

So Much Happy, inside – #2

I carried out the colors from the front of the card and stamped three small balloons from the So Much Happy stamp set on a panel of Whisper White cs: Coastal Cabana ink, then Pacific Point ink, then Gorgeous Grape ink. I stamped the balloon tails in Gorgeous Grape ink, then the tiny bows in Coastal Cabana ink. Adhere the Whisper White panel to Coastal Cabana cs with liquid glue, then into the card base and voila, the card is complete!

For the envelope…

So Much Happy bundle – #3

Adhere a panel of Artistry Blooms DSP to the envelope flap. Stamp the stars in the coordinating colors used on the card: Coastal Cabana ink, Gorgeous Grape ink and Pacific Point ink.

SU! So Much Happy/ Warm Hugs

Hi Everyone – gosh it is a gorgeous day today… cooler than it has been with a light breeze… this is easy to take. Remember my S-I-L who shattered his elbow? (He’s progressing very well BTW) His birthday was yesterday and I created a fun little gift bag for him using the Warm Hugs bundle, So Much Happy bundle and the Celebration Labels Dies. Let’s take a look at the final product…

Warm Hugs/ So Much Happy gift

He’s a bit of a coffee person and this set just jumped out at me as a perfect little gift for him. He also loves peanut M & Ms – so…. the Heartwarming Hugs Suite is just right. It can be found on pg 8-10 in the Aug- Dec 2020 Mini catalog.

I began by putting the Mini Coffee Carrier together – just unfold and crease… no glue, nothing. But then I decided to fancy it up a bit. I covered the base with some of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP. Then I took a strip of In Good Taste DSP and adhered that over it with liquid glue. I also added a length of Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Ribbon with Tear ‘n Tape, then included a bow with a glue dot. I did the same on the back side without including the bow.

Next I took the Warm Wraps Dies and die cut the various pieces to create a trim around the Mini Coffee Cup. I used the same In Good Taste DSP for the large pieces, then the scallops were die cut from Soft Suede cs. I put these together with liquid glue then slid it onto the cup. Once I had the wrap where I wanted it I slid it down just a bit and drizzled in a bit of liquid glue and slid the wrap back into place again. This keeps it from falling off :O)

Then I did the tag for the cup… circle is die cut from Soft Suede cs, the hexagon in Whisper White. Before die cutting the hexagon, I stamped the the sentiment in Crumb Cake, then the hexagon stamp in Soft Suede. TIP: I had stamped these in reverse order and didn’t get the sentiment centered correctly in the hexagon, disappointment! There a redo…The hexagon is more open and therefore you can see better to center it over the circle sentiment. easy peasy… Die cut the stamped hexagon and affix it to the Soft Suede circle with dimensionals. This then was adhered to the cup also with dimensionals. And bingo the cup was ready. I filled a Gusseted Cellophane Bag with the peanut M & Ms and tied it with Real Red 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and put it in the other part of the coffee carrier. Cute, right? I then created another tag, this time the circle was die cut in Mossy Meadow cs. Before die cutting the hexagon, I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink and the hexagon stamp in Mossy Meadow ink. It was then attached to the coffee carrier with dimesnionals.

I put all of this (plus the coffee beans) in a Stampin’ Up! cello bag that I had in my stash as a demonstrator. And of course it needed a large something to hold it together…. out came the Celebration Labels Dies  – so perfect! I first cut one in the same In Good Taste DSP then another in Soft Suede cs. I then took the Happy Dies and die cut the word HAPPY from the In Good Taste label. Next I stamped the word birthday from the So Much Happy stamp set in Soft Suede ink.This panel was adhered onto the Soft Suede label and it clearly shows through just as I wanted – yay! Then I stapled it all together over the cello bag. Voila! And by the way – he loved it!!!
