Since I first received Happy Happenings at the release of Stampin’ Up!’s 2016-2017 Annual Catalog, I’ve been itching to use the pairing of the “Me? Miss you? Only all the time” sentiments. I needed the right colors and right image to pair them with – and I found it! Yippee! Today I’m excited to finally showcase this wonderful sentiment, paired with the sweet image from Happy Home. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Grass and Sky. The background panel of this card is split down the middle between Wild Wasabi on the bottom and Soft Sky on the top. I chose these colors to represent sky and ground. The colors tie to the green grass and blue clouds in the stamped image that’s directly in the center of the card. The light colors gave me the perfect backdrop for the sentiments – one in the top left and one in the bottom right.
- Stamp Sets. I’ve always loved Happy Happenings and reach for it almost every time I make a card. The sentiments are super-versatile, and the fonts are gorgeous. As I mention earlier, this sentiment from Happy Happenings was meant to be with this sweet scene from Happy Home. There’s just something so simple and serene about this scene and something so sweet about these words.
- Colors. You might not be able to tell from the card photograph, but I used Early Espresso cardstock to frame the panels (it might look black from the photo). The bench needed to be brown (from my visual interpretation of the card), so it made sense that Early Espresso should frame the card. If you like this sweet combination of colors, feel free to save this:
Stamp Sets: Happy Happenings, Happy Home Papers: Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Whisper White Inks: Basic Black Archival, Stampin’ Write Markers (Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso) Accessories: Stampin’ Dimensionals
I’ll be back tomorrow with a bit more information about this card – so please come back.
Thanks for stopping by today!
