Welcome to the Inspired by Stamping July Release Countdown! Today’s the day where we get to share cards & projects using the new Happy Occasions and Happy Occasions Stamp Sets! We have had so much fun with these sets! We have lots to share so let’s get started!
Happy Occasions takes center stage with my first card. Bold, bright and extra large is this new sentiment!
I stamped it on our largest Fancy Labels 1 Die. I then used our Fancy Labels 2 Die for this pink background. Tip: To make the Fancy Labels 2 fit behind the Fancy Labels 1, I cut the die in half and then used sticky tape to adhere it behind my sentiment.
Summer Flowers stamp set created this lovely border of flowers in the corner of my card. I colored each one using Spectrum Noir markers. Each flower was cut from the Silhouette with our free cut files!
I added a strip of Pink Seam Binding Ribbon down the middle. I was going to add a bow but thought the flowers have such a gorgeous impact that I should leave this card as is.
My 2nd Birthday card today is a Clean and Simple (CAS) one featuring this new stamp set and our Creative Tags set.
The one thing that I love about this new set is how you can move around the sentiments to fit your card, like this one. With both the “happy” and “birthday” as separate stamps, it leaves lots of room for making your sentiment longer or shorter to fit your card!
I used some rolled paper flowers from our last release. I always have a stash cut out from my Silhouette ready for quick gluing on my card! I then attached my flowers onto a Creative Tag with some IBS Little Leaves. Don’t forget to lift everything with foam dimensionals.
Happy Occasions, Happy Occasion Sentiments and Summer Postcards Add On stamp sets were used for my 3rd card today.
From the last card, you can see that I moved the “Birthday” to fit above the flourish on the “Happy” sentiment. I also added one of the great sayings that you can find from our New Happy Occasions Sentiments set.
Summer Postcards Add On was introduced last month, Click Here for more inspiration on this set. I stamped my flower postcard and then colored it with Copic Markers. I then stamped my robin postcard image. Each one has been lifted on dimensionals.
To celebrate the 4th of July, I created this birthday card using Red, White and Blue. On the top of my card, I used one of the new Happy Occasion Sentiments! I just love the versatility of this set! I also placed a sentiment from the Happy Occasions Sentiments set on the top corner!
I stamped my “ Happy Birthday” sentiment on our FREE Single Fancy Frame Nestie Cut Files.
I have been trying to use up all my scrap patterned paper. Did you see my photo on our FB page of my latest paper purchase? HEHE! I just had to make room for all those goodies and used lots of scraps for these cards.
For my last card today, I grabbed all our new background stamps and paired them up with Happy Occasions and Happy Occasion Sentiments!
Our background stamps fit the entire length of a card front so you only have to stamp once! Don’t forget to use your Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect alignment. (Yes, I had to stamp this a few times before I learnt my lesson. )
I went with bold colors for my card and used Orange, Green, Pink and Red. LOVE the bold red “Happy Birthday”! As you can see this new stamp set is EXTRA LARGE and takes center stage! Another Happy Occasion Sentiments was used below my “Happy Birthday” Sentiment.
I always like to add crochet trim or ribbon to divide my cards from sentiments and paper or background stamps. It adds dimension to your card and adds a touch of whimsy. I also added an IBS White Daisy.
I hope that you enjoyed today’s cards and project! I absolutely LOVE these sets and I can see that I will be using them frequently in the future!
