I wanted to play with Lawn Fawn’s new Happy Happy Happy stamp set. I love the three large Happy’s and the matching dies. After creating a half sheet of patterned paper, I was able to make three cards with it.
Card One: Mowed Lawn and Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink
Card Two: Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral Distress Ink
Card Three: Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink
Size: Horizontal top fold A2 cards
Extra Details: I started with a half sheet of water color paper. I used the three large Happy stamps, the small Happy stamp, and the little happy face stamp to create an all over pattern. I used Versa Mark ink and white heat embossing powder for all of that stamping. I also heat embossed some supporting sentiment on black card stock.
Next, I used some rectangle dies to cut two stitched rectangles. I added some cross stitch detail to the edge of my left-over rectangle. I used a banner die to cut out the supporting sentiments.
I used Distress Inks to smoosh some color on each panel. I let the first layer air dry and then added a second layer of ink.
As the panels were drying, I created my card bases. I made two green card bases and one grey card base. I used a very light grey ink to stamp some arrows on the card bases for interest.
After the ink smooshed panels were dry, I die cut a window using a die from the Happy Happy Happy set. I lined the panel up with the card base and carefully stamped Happy through the die cut. I used a gel pen to color in some of the word. I used fun foam to pop the ink smooshed panel up off the card base. I adhered the black banners flat to the ink smooshed panels.
For the last card, I used a grey die cut for the sentiment. I adhered everything flat to the card
