Product Spotlight: Lots of Happy Card Kit

Here is the other kit in the Occasions Catalogue, the Lots of Happy Card Kit.  Two things I love about this kit is, it’s an all inclusive kit which means you get everything you need to put these cards together. *the only thing sold separately is tape, ie Fast Fuse or Snail Adhesive. The other thing I love is this kit comes with watercolour pencils to colour in with.  Although you are able to colour in using other colouring tools.

I coloured in these four different ways.

1. Neat watercolour pencil colouring

2018008a

Today I am playing along with Colour InkSpiration Challenge.  This challenge really stumped me with the colour combination of Emerald Envy, Bermuda Bay, Tranquil Tide and Sahara Sand.  I eventually settled on using leaves with all the green.

Here is my card…

2018005a

What I used:

  • Sahara Sand Card Stock
  • Vellum
  • Tranquil Tide Card Stock
  • Colourful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set
  • Perennial Birthday Clear Mount Stamp Set
  • Tranquil Tide Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Emerald Envy Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Bermuda Bay Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • 2″ Circle Punch
  • Everyday Label Punch
  • Bone Folder (I used the scoring knife from the Envelope Punch Board)

2018005b

How I made this Card:

  • The card base is Sahara Sand sized at 210 x 148mm scored at 105mm;
  • Vellum piece is 134 x 98mm;
  • The other Sahara Sand piece is approximately cut to 125 x 90mm, I then tore the top and side edges.
  • On the card base I stamped the larger Maple Leaf from the Colourful Seasons stamp set.  Each leaf was stamped off first, I stamped down the left side and the bottom about 3 times in each colour.  Using Bermuda Bay, Emerald Envy and Tranquil Tide in that order.
  • Next I took the small Maple Leaf from the same stamp set and only stamped in Tranquil Tide.
  • Then I took the large outline of the Maple Leaf and stamped on top of each leaf on the card base.  I also stamped them on the other piece of Sahara Sand along the torn edge.  I took my bone folder and distressed the opposite corner.
  • I then stamped the sentiment from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set onto a piece of Tranquil Tide and punched it out with the 2″ Circle Punch.  I took another piece of Sahara Sand and punched the Everyday Label Punch out with it.
  • I started to adhere everything, using Fast Fuse I adhered the Sahara Sand piece to the vellum. Then that to the card base.  Finally the sentiment is adhere to the Everyday Label piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Fast Fused it to the card.
