Stamping Sunday Blog Hop – Lots of Happy Birthday

Screen Shot 2017-04-25 at 1.14.42 PMWelcome to the Stamping Sunday blog hop!   You have just arrived in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and I am Lynsay Mahon.  You can see the list of the design team members by clicking on the blue button:

This month, we are showcasing two Stampin’ Up! project kits: the Lots of Happy and Perennial Birthday Kits. I opted to focus on my favourite: the all-inclusive, Lots of Happy, Card Kit.

Lots Of Happy Card Kit

This kit includes the supplies to create 20 all occasions cards.  Included are 7 photopolymer stamps; a clear stamp block; 20 printed card bases and envelopes; a giftable kraft box; printed die-cut accents; a black archival stampin’ spot; full-size watercolour pencils; ribbon and dimensionals!

Here is a video by Stampin’ Up! showcasing how this kit comes together:

What I love about kits like this is not only do you get to make 20 beautiful cards, but there are non-consumable supplies, like the stamp set, ink pad, and watercolor pencils left over for you to keep on creating with! I wanted to share with you some alternative projects that you can do with the left over supplies.

Lots of Happy-002

This first card uses stamps that are included in the 7-piece stamp set, but aren’t actually used in the original cards.  I maintained the colour scheme of lemon lime twist and flirty flamingo, and kept within the watercolour theme.  I love how the pieces layer together on this card.  I even used the left over negatives of the vellum leaves from the kit by fussy cutting around the outside to keep the leaf shape. Here’s a closer look:

The second project is a nice, simple card:

lots of happy 2-001

I repeatedly stamped the flower to create the background and used a sponge dauber to concentrate ink in the centre to create a subtle flirty flamingo glow.  I had a left over pre-printed circle embellishment, so used that on the centre for the greeting.  It is a fast card to create, which I love!

  1. Your cards are gorgeous! I especially LOVE the Lemon Lime Twist watercoloring. So pretty and adds the perfect touch to your card! As for the Flirty Flamingo card- I’m totally going to be sad when this color retires. It truly makes the most beautiful cards!
