Stampin’ Up! Full Of Happiness Hello Sweet Friend Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Full Of Happiness stamp set to create a fun spring hello card to share with you today. I did a YouTube Live video about how I made this card yesterday and you can see it here.

My card design is loosely based on Freshly Made Sketches #423.

I started by adhering a panel of Mint Macaron DSP from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP pack to a panel of Mint Macaron card stock with SNAIL.  Then I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Mint Macaron card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the chick images from the Full Of Happiness photopolymer stamp set in Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove and Tuxedo Black Memento inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then cut around them with the largest of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I slid the die up about 3/4″ from the bottom of the die cut, lined up the notches and then rolled the panel back through the die cutting machine about half way before reversing it out to shorten the die cut a bit.  I adhered the die cut panel to the card front with SNAIL.

I stamped the egg outline and lined images from the Full of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and Highland Heather ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then cut the image out with the coordinating die from the Dino Dies.  I adhered the egg to the card front with SNAIL.  Then I stamped the three sentiments in VersaMark ink on panels of Pineapple Punch, Highland Heather and Grapefruit Grove card stocks, sprinkled them with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them.  I cut the sentiments out with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered them with SNAIL to the card front.

I stamped the flower images from the Thoughtful Blooms photopolymer stamp set (Sale-a-bration item) one on top of the other in Grapefruit Grove ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I punched the image out with the coordinating Small Bloom Punch (Sale-a-bration item).  I adhered the punched flower with a Stampin’ Dimensional and then added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish the card front.

I adhered a panel from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP to a Whisper White card stock panel with SNAIL to finish the inside of the card.

You can see a list of supplies used to create this card, including the card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this blog post.
