Stampin’ Up! A Happy Thing Card

I used the Sale-A-Bration exclusive stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called A Happy Thing to create my card to share today.

A Happy Thing - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by The Paper Players #229.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the A Happy Thing stamp set (Sale-A-Bration item) in Wild Wasabi ink on a panel from the Painted Blooms DSP pack.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with the placement (I love this tool!).

A Happy Thing 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered the stamped DSP panel and a smaller DSP panel from the Painted Blooms DSP pack to a panel of Wild Wasabi card stock with SNAIL.  Then I wrapped a strand of Wild Wasabi 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon around the panel, adhering it with SNAIL.  I adhered the layered panel to a Daffodil Delight card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A Happy Thing 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the image from the A Happy Thing stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I punched the image out with my 2-1/2″ Circle Punch and colored it with the Daffodil Delight (Sale-A-Bration item, also available in the Annual Catalog) and Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Blendabilties Markers.  I adhered the image with SNAIL to a circle that I’d cut from Wild Wasabi card stock with a Circles Collection Framelits Die, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A Happy Thing 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I tied a bow with the Wild Wasabi Seam Binding Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot next to the image, then added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel next to the sentiment to finish the card front.

A Happy Thing 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the image from the A Happy Thing stamp set twice on a Whisper White panel in Daffodil Delight ink on the inside of the card.

  1. Great card Amy! I like your color choices and I LOVE that perfect bow. (I need some bow lessons if you ever come to Indiana:))

  2. Amy, your lemon is perfectly colored and I love how you embellished your card. Thank you for playing along with the Paper Players sketch challenge this week.

  3. Your card made me smile! I love the way your lemon is highlighted with the wild wasabi and beautiful ribbon and bow. My favorite part of your card is how well the dsp compliments your lemon – the greenery looks perfect! 🙂 I cannot wait to CASE this awesome card Amy 😉

    Have a great time at the Heirloom Festival! 🙂
