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

CTC160 – Picture Perfect Party Pages

Today I played along CASEing the Catty Challenge, caseing the Picture Perfect Party Suite pages from the Occasions Catalogue.

I chose a card from page 4 .

2018001a

Products Used:

  • Picture Perfect Birthday Photopolymer Stamp Set
  • Whisper White Card Stock
  • Emerald Envy Card Stock
  • Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock
  • Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper
  • Emerald Envy Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Lemon Lime Twist Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Banner Triple Punch
  • Fast Fuse Adhesive
  • Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals

The first thing I decided on with this card is to use the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper and that help with deciding on the colour scheme.

I cut two 2″ strips of the DSP and used the Banner Triple Punch to create the banners.  I topped the banner on the left with a 2″ piece of Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock and took my Paper Snips to create the fringe.

2018001b

I adhered the banners to the A6 Thick Whisper White Card Stock, making sure to trim the banners where necessary.

I took a piece of Emerald Envy Card Stock and stamped the sentiment with the Picture Perferct Birthday Photopolymer Stamp Set in Emerald Envy Ink.  I then took a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and stamped the same sentiment with Night of Navy Ink and cut out the ‘Of’ and ‘To you’ and adhered it over the top with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Before I adhered the sentiment to the card with the Stampin’ Dimensionals I took the the sprinkles looking stamp and doubled stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist Ink.

Mixing Brand New and Retiring

This stack of cards was created for a breast cancer fundraiser at my Mum’s work.

LM17-NOTE001a

I wanted to start to have a play with the new items from the Annual Catalogue 2017 – 18 that launches 1st June plus work in current/retiring items.

I picked four different pinks Powder Pink, Berry Burst (these are two new In Colors 2017-19), Flirty Flamingo and Pink Pirouette, plus Basic Black and Tranquil Tide (also a new In Color).

I used an entire packet of Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes.

LM17-NOTE001b

1 – Frilly Berry Burst

This card is matted with Berry Burst Card Stock. The frill is created by cutting blocks of colour of the Berry Burst sheet from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack.  The sentiment is from the Super Duper Stamp Set, I stamped twice in Berry Burst, then fussy cut both out.

LM17-NOTE001c

2 – Pocket Change

I used another sheet of Berry Burst from the Color Theory DSP Stack but this time I used the watercolour effect one.  This is perfect for making it look like jeans that have faded in places.   I managed to fit four pockets from the Pocketful of Sunshine Stamp Set on one 6×6.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals so an actual note could still fit in the pocket.  The note is stamped in Tranquil Tide, the pocket tag is stamped in Berry Burst and Basic Black.  The sentiment is from the Super Duper Stamp Set.

LM17-NOTE001d

3 – A Lifting Note

This card uses the Lift Me Up Stamp Set, Up & Away Dies and Stitched Shapes.  I stamped the balloons in Flirty Flamingo and Pink Pirouette.  The Balloon Die was cut out in Whisper White and using Dauper I sponged Flirty Flamingo on the top half.

LM17-NOTE001e

4 – Blast of Berry Burst

This card uses the Birthday Blast Stamp Set and the matching Star Blast Dies.  The sentiment is from the Window Shopping Stamp Set.  I stamped the background stars in Powder Pink and the star die is cut out in Berry Burst.

LM17-NOTE001f

5 – Flirty Flamingo Flamingo

This card uses the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set, stamping in Flirty Flamingo, Pink Pirouette and Basic Black.  The leaves on the background were stamped around the edge in both pinks.  The Flamingo is stamped in Pink Pirouette, Flirty Flamingo, Basic Black.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

LM17-NOTE001g

6 – Decked out in Powder Pink and Berry Burst

This card uses Berry Burst and Powder Pink.  I created the background by taking the A Clear Block and inking it in Powder Pink then swirling it around the card base.  I stamped the sentiment from the Colourful Seasons Stamp Set.  The chair is cut using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.

LM17-NOTE001h

7 – Piece of Cake

These cards use all Powder Pink and all Pink Pirouette.  I inked up the doilies with the colour ink pads then with Versamark and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  The sentiment is from the Birthday Blast sentiment, I fussy cut them out.  The cake dies are left overs from the Bithday Bright Project Kit, the pieces were not the same white as the note cards so used dauber and sponged the matching colours onto the cake dies.

LM17-NOTE001i

8 – Super Duper Doilies

These cards use all four pinks.  I took my ink pads of Berry Burst and Flirty Flamingo and inked up the Lace Doilies (which I am so upset they are retiring)… And by the way is it just me or does that Berry Burst Doily look like Blackberry Bliss?

I also used Versamark and Clear Embossing Powder to almost reinforce the doilies because they become super fragile from being inked up.  The sentiment is from the Super Duper Stamp Set, I stamped in all four pinks, then cut the ‘Birthday’ out of the lighter colours.

LM17-NOTE001j

9 – Super Simple I Love You

This card is really simple, I used Pink Piroeutte Ink Pad to stamp the background.  Flirty Flamingo to stamp ink the doily.  The sentiment is from the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set, which was cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

 

I hope you enjoyed seeing my nine cards, and until next time…

Happy stampin,

Lauren
