Stampin’ Up! Happy Scenes for The Paper Players

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Scenes stamp set to create my card for The Paper Players Clean and Simple challenge this week.  I’ve seen several like this on Pinterest, I think that Leena Girsa made the first one that I saw.  🙂

The design for my card was inspired by Pals Paper Arts PPA268.

I started by inking the Hardwood stamp in Chocolate Chip ink, stamping it once on scrap paper, then stamping it on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Chocolate Chip card stock with SNAIL, then to a Pumpkin Pie card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a leaf from Gold Glimmer Paper with the maple leaf die from the Leaflets Framelits die set and adhered it with Fast Fuse Adhesive to the card front.  I stamped the image from the Happy Scenes photopolymer stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink in a panel of Whisper White card stock and carefully added a bit of color with the fine tip of my Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Markers.

Happy Scenes 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I cut the image out with the maple leaf die from the Leaflets Framelits die set, sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals over the gold leaf.  I pulled a strand of Linen Thread through a Gold Basic Metal Button, tied a bow and adhered the button with a Stampin’ Dimensional to the card front.

I colored the sentiment from the For All Things stamp set with my Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write Markers, stamped it on a panel of Whisper White card stock and I punched it out with the Washi Label Punch.  I punched the sentiment with the Washi Label Punch a second time to make it a little smaller (used a Post-It Note to hold the card stock when I punched it the second time), sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink and adhered the sentiment with SNAIL to a Washi Label Punch from Chocolate Chip card stock.  I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Happy Scenes 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the image from the Happy Scenes stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink on a Whisper White panel inside the card.  I used the fine point of my Stampin’ Write Markers to add a little color to this image as well.
