Hello my sweet friends! Today we are introducing Happy Stamp Set & coordinating Happy Die Cut!. This is such a fun and great sentiment stamp set to add to your collection. I added a few extra special sentiments so that our happy wouldn’t be too traditional. 🙂 This 4×6 set comes with 21 sentiments and I have created a happy sentiment die to go along with this great set! Super Fun!
I am so excited to share a few cards using this fabulous stamp set. 🙂
A few weeks ago on my personal Instagram page, I challenged myself to go through all my stamps from A-Z and create a card with them! So today, I have my first two sets to share with you, our Australian Birds and Australian Nature I stamp sets.
I stamped this beautiful bird with Antique Linen and then colored it with watercolors on Arches Hot Press Paper. I typically stamp all my images on cards stock and in the evening in front of the television, I sit and color. I love coloring and it is so relaxing. I will have to share how I do it on my Instagram page so you can see my set up. 🙂
After, I finished coloring my bird, I simply added some burlap/hessian and some wood paper for a more masculine feel.
I originally had my sentiments stamped in the front but I felt it took away from the beauty of my bird. So I moved them to the inside of my card and LOVE it. I adore how the “happy” die cut just takes centerstage even in the inside of my card!
Here’s my second card! And this time it is using our Australian Nature I stamp set. I adore these orchids in this stamp set. I am using zig clean brush pens to color this image and the background as well. I love Bristol Vellum cardstock with markers! You must try this! The marker doesn’t absorb and moves around a bit more on the paper before it dries. This leaves you time to color and play with the inks!
After coloring my orchids, I grabbed the new Happy Stamp Set and stamped the images with my Misti! I love my Misti! I had to stamp this three times to give it the rich black color. I adore the font in this stamp set and the multiple sentiments that go with the happy.
I hope you have enjoyed my cards today. I will be back in a few days with a new video tutorial. I will be showcasing Background Basics Lines (it’s the next set in my series) and a new tutorial! I am up to B in the A-Z countdown and I hope you will love what I have in store for you.
