From the moment I first laid eyes on A Happy Thing, one of the amazing options during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-Bration, I knew I was in love. Complementing a big, bold lemon and a chubby, little bird are two amazing sentiments in beautiful fonts. Let’s see – beautiful images, great sentiments and gorgeous fonts – sounds like the perfect combination of elements for a wonderful stamp set. Even better – it’s free with a $50 purchase (starting in January 6). Woo hoo! Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Snippy, Snippy. This lemon (or I suppose you could make it a lime) is PERFECT for a fun paper-piecing project. The bold, sketched lines make it super easy to snip around the edges – even if you aren’t an avid snipper. Lining up the pieces over the stamped images is really easy – doesn’t have to be perfect to be amazing.
- An Angled Backdrop. With all its big, bold shapes and colors, this card needs a little pattern and texture. The small piece of Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper, another great option during Sale-a-Bration, gives me the right balance of color and pattern I wanted to support the bold, bright lemon. I angled the top of the paper to add intrigue.
- Color Combination. I love this fresh, bright combination of colors. The bright yellow and the mellow green pair well for a fresh pop of Spring. If you like this combination of colors, too, feel free to save this:
