So Happy

Hi Everybody,

I have only been on the Sweet 'N Sassy Design Team a few months and I'm so excited to be a part of their 10th Anniversary Celebration.  There are lots of giveaways and surprises in store.  HERE'S A LINK outlining everything.

I used the stamp set below from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps called So Happy.  

I made a couple of Quick and Easy birthday cards using this stamp set.  There are SO many possibilities.....

Through the entire month of November EVERY $50 order* will also include the “So Happy” stamp set, a $15.95 value, at no additional charge!! No coupon required.
*Order must total $50 after discounts and before tax and shipping.

I have been wanting to make a card for so long just using a blob of watercolor as the background so that's what I did with this one.  I used Bristol Smooth paper and wet it first in the middle and then just added some Gambai Tambi Watercolor Paint in a purple color, I think it's #135.  I let it go wherever it wanted to.  I heat set it, added a little more color and swirled it around a little with a paint brush.  Next I embossed the word Happy with Brutus Monroe Ultrafine Alabaster Embossing Powder. I also embossed the word Birthday with the Alabaster on black cardstock and cut it down into a strip.  The silver glitter strip is a strip of glitter paper just cut into a strip.  I layered it on black cardstock and added a few clear sequins. 

For this card, I used Blue Lagoon cardstock by Gina K Designs, Turquoise Sea would also work.  I used the MISTI to stamp and space out the word, Happy, and embossed with Brutus Monroe Ultrafine Alabaster Embossing Powder.  Also embossed the word Birthday same powder.  I had used Thermoweb Transfer Gel with a stencil and foiled with Rainbow Decofoil so I cut a couple of thin strips and adhered to the sides.  This foil just screams birthday, celebration, etc., to me.  I added some clear sequins to finish it off. 

I think you will have a lot of fun with this stamp set and it would also make a great gift for a crafty friend. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
