CAS Retro Fresh Happy Day Card – Stampin’ Up!

Happy Monday!  I’ve got another sneak peek at some new products from the 2014 Occasions Catalog to share with you today.  I made this card using the Happy Day stamp set, some of the Retro Fresh DSP and a little Gold Baker’s Twine.  I even pulled out an old quilting needle to add the Baker’s Twine to my card, I’m terrible at sewing so don’t look too closely at my stitching.  🙂

My card design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches #117.

Happy Day - Stamp With Amy K

I started by adhering a panel of the Retro Fresh DSP (available Jan 3) to a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I cut strips of the Retro Fresh DSP in various widths and lengths and punched the ends with the Hexagon Punch.  I curled the ends of the strips a little and adhered the them to the DSP panel with SNAIL.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Day stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in Soft Suede ink above the DSP banners, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement.

Next, I used my Paper-Piercing Tool and Stampin’ Pierce Mat and I pierced holes through the tops of the DSP banners.  I pulled out a quilting needle and threaded some of the Gold Baker’s Twine (available Jan 3) through it and “stitched” the thread through the pierced holes.  Then I added a few sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim (available Jan 3) using just a touch of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them.  I placed a few Pearl Basic Jewels, then adhered the decorated panel to a Soft Suede card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Happy Day 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I finished the inside of the card by adhering a strip of Retro Fresh DSP to a Very Vanilla panel.

The complete list of supplies, including card stock cuts, to create the project is at the very bottom of this post.
