A Happy Hooray in Back to Black – Stampin’ Up!

I used some of the new Back to Black DSP and the A Happy Hooray stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share today.A Happy Hooray - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #142.

I started by embossing a panel of Bermuda Bay card stock with the Tiny Triangles Embossing Folder.  Then I punched one corner of a panel of Basic Black card stock and a panel of Back to Black DSP with the Project Life Corner Punch and I adhered them together, then to the Bermuda Bay panel with SNAIL.

A Happy Hooray 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered a strip of Back to Black card stock to a strip of Back to Black DSP, then adhered them to the card front with SNAIL.  I wrapped a piece of Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon around the panel, adhered it with SNAIL, then adhered the embossed panel to a Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A Happy Hooray 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment from the A Happy Hooray stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I punched the stamped image out with the Hexagon Punch and layered it over a Basic Black card stock hexagon that I’d cut with a die from a hexagon set made by Stamps of Life.

A Happy Hooray 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then added a Basic Black and Bermuda Bay Candy Dot next to the sentiment to complete the card front.

A Happy Hooray 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I tried to recreate a similar look to the feathers in the Back to Black DSP on the inside of the card by stamping the feather image from the A Happy Hooray stamp set in StazOn Jet Black Ink on a Whisper White panel.
