Happy Wishes SAB – You Make Me Happy

Happy Wishes SAB - You Make Me Happy

Good morning peeps!  Today I have the third and final design I created using my Happy Wishes SAB (Sale-a-bration) stamp set, Tutti Frutti Designer Series Paper and Red Glimmer paper.  I was excited to use just one sheet of the 6″x6″ Black&White striped dsp for all three designs.  Woohoo!

For this card all I had left was a couple strips of the DSP.  I layered the DSP and red glimmer and really liked the look so I thought two would look cool together, a little extra pizzazz but not too over the top.  [grin]  I trimmed 3/4″ from the long edge of the card front so one combo layer was placed on the front edge and inside edge.

Of course, I had to include the Color Coordinated Embossing on this sentiment as well.  The glimmer paper has such a strong presence it called out for embossing.  After embossing the “happy” I fussy cut it out and thought it would look even better with a red glimmer frame surrounding it.  Yes……I’m a glutton for punishment.  I confess that I don’t mind fussy cutting it has a relaxing effect on me.  [grin]  After fussy cut the red glimmer it didn’t feel like there was enough to ground it.  So……I cut a red glimmer oval with my Layering Ovals Framelits and placed the sentiment on top.  Ahhhh……that made me “happy”.  Lol!  I used plenty of glue dots to keep all three layers together.

Finally, I added the “you make me happy”. This was color coordinated embossed AND fussy cut as well.  What?  I did say I was a glutton for punishment.  Lol!  I had a hard time getting the red glimmer to pop in the pics, all three cards are prettier in real life.

OH……I almost forgot.  I added a couple rhinestones for even more bling.  [giggle]  I colored them with my new Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend marker.  It colored them perfectly without wiping off.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great weekend and have enjoyed and found inspiration in these three designs.  Happy stamping!!!
