It’s 100% true – you can never have too much happy. I’ve loved this sentiment from Stampin’ Up!’s Yippee-Skippee stamp set from the moment I first saw it. This might sound corny (and I’m OK with that), but I love this craft, and I love to share it with you. Here’s my Design Team card for this week’s Fab Friday design challenge:
I was also inspired by Laurie Schmidt’s challenge over at The Paper Players this week:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Straightened Out. You already know this, but I LOVE Designer Series Paper. I also LOVE to alter it a bit. If the pattern is diagonal, I want to make it straight (and vice versa). What flexibility we have when we are able to cut into our paper to create new and fun patterns! Is it the rebel in me? I think it might be. I might end up with more scraps from this paper, but I got the effect I wanted. Thanks, Stampin’ Up!.
- Curled Up. I used my bone folder to gently roll the edges of each layer (not too much!) to give the flower a little life.This marks the first time I’ve ever used the flowers from this Flower Patch stamp set – a set I’ve owned since the set was released last year. What has taken me so long!?! I love that I can layer a beautiful flower with ease and can include whatever colors I want. Yippee! The fresh and fun colors from this week’s challenge were a great inspiration as I layered my flower.
- Simple Splatter. I hadn’t planned on adding a Gorgeous Grunge splatter (in my designer’s mind, the flower and sentiment would surely cover this panel nicely). I don’t use it a lot, but this faint splatter of Blushing Bride adds just the touch I wanted to fill the empty space here. It’s easy to see why Gorgeous Grunge is such a favorite!
