An idea popped into my head this past weekend that I am excited to share with you. The unique thing about this idea is that it originally popped into my head in March of 2014. I created a fun, floral card for you then. Today, I’m using smiley faces from Hello (a stamp set that’s available during Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Sale-a-Bration). Same concept with different colors and images. Yippee! Here’s my card:
And here’s the card I shared with you a couple of years ago (you can click on the picture to see my original post):
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Hello – Still Available. Were you so focused on the gorgeously scripted “hello” and coordinating sentiments that you overlooked the fun images in Hello? Hello is one of three items in Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Sale-a-Bration brochure that were offered for a limited time (through February 15). With excess inventory on these items, Stampin’ Up! is holding them over a bit longer. As such, you can still pick up Hello with a $50 order. How cool is that!? I’m not sure how much longer this item will be available, so don’t wait too much longer. 🙂
- On the Curve. I have patience for a lot of things, but I don’t have enough time in my life to perfectly line up a bunch of happy faces. Purposefully adding the faces (each puched with a 1/2″ Circle punch and adhered with teeny-tiny Stampin’ Dimensionals from one of my Paper Pumpkin kits) on a curve makes it a lot easier to position these dear faces on the card. If you’re all about easy, then “on the curve” might be a good option for you.
- ROYGBIV. There are so many options for creating a super-fun rainbow with Stampin’ Up!’s colors. In my original card, I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Island Indigo and Elegant Eggplant. Two years later, I used Real Red, Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry, Cucumber Crush, Pacific Point, Blackberry Bliss and Perfect Plum. No matter what combination of colors you choose (in almost any family of colors), you are sure to create a fun and happy card.
Stamp Sets: Hello, Greatest Greetings Papers: Cucumber Crush, Basic Black, Whisper White, Thick Whisper White Inks: Archival Basic Black, Real Red, Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry, Cucumber Crush, Pacific Point, Blackberry Bliss, Perfect Plum Accessories: 1/2″ Circle punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
