Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our blog hop we have a sketch challenge, (my favorite type of challenge) For this sketch I wanted to play with the Happiness Abounds Bundle.  The stamp sets and dies are great but that DSP takes the cake, it is gorgeous.  Make sure you stop by our other creative team members blogs too and see what they created for the hop.

The Sketch:

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds:

The Recipe:

Card base: Basic White 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Mat: Pool Party 4 x 5-1/4

DSP panel: Hues of Happiness 4 x 5-1/16

Small mat: Pool Party 4 x 3-7/8

Embossed panel: Basic White 4 x 3-3/4 embossed with the Fern EF

The Details:

  • Die cut 3 flowers from the Hues of Happiness DSP with the Blossoming Happiness dies
  • Die cut a variety of leaves from the Hues of Happiness DSP with the Blossoming Happiness dies

The Sentiment:

  • Stamp the sentiment from the Happiness Abounds stamp set onto Basic White card stock with Black Tuxedo Memento Ink

Putting the card together:

  • Attach the embossed panel to the Pool Party mat
  • Attach the large DSP panel to the Pool Party mat
