Happy Celebrations

By | March 28, 2017

I have a great stamp set to share with you today.  It’s perfect for masculine cards, something I struggle with.  But not any longer, because now I’m flooded with great ideas!!!

This stamp set coordinates with the Celebrations Duo Textured Impression Embossing Folders: one that says “HAPPY” and another that says “Celebrate.”  You can see a subtle impression of the HAPPY in the background of my card below.

I stamped the HAPPY with Basic Black Archival ink on watercolor paper and watercolored it with Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, and Pacific Point ink.  Then, I cut out each letter and adhered them with dimensionals over the embossed HAPPY.  I got this idea from Kimberley Van Diepen, who did a similar card.

This stamp set has lots of geometric shapes that are great to build a fun background.  I stamped off so the colors would be muted and the HAPPY in the center would draw the eye.

Finally, I added some enamel dots and black and white accents for some added punch.  The diagonal paper is from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Collection.
