The card today is a stepped up version of yesterday’s card. Saying that, there is not a lot of difference, but it looks like more was added. The Filled With Happiness set is so much easy to work with.
This card is still a quick card to make and uses only the one stamp from the Filled With Happiness stamp set. I chose the “Good Day” message for this card. This sentiment reminds me of one of the first episodes of Fixer Upper when they made a sign that said this, or something similar. I love it though. And in my book these are oranges in the stamp. I suppose they could be another fruit.
The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then stamped again on scrap to get the center. I colored with Stampin’ Blends. There was creative license used with the Pool Party blooms. LOL!! But I believe that is fine.
The punch is the same as yesterday with the Modern Oval Punch. It is out of stock, but will be returning. The oval is then added to the large area with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I had a question yesterday regarding lining up the center back to the large image. Everyone has their own methods, but I add the dimensionals, then keep my point finger from each hand underneath to keep it from attaching before I am ready. Then I can use my thumb to press down a bit on the bottom once I have everything lined up. That allows for a little wiggle room and I go from bottom to top in positioning. I hope that helps some of you.
Sale-A-Bration Items and Paper
The rest of the card, other than card stock, is Sale-A- Bration products. Woohoo!! I love Free and Sale-A-Bration is offering some really nice items. The card base is Pool Party. When using two pieces of DSP, I like to use a layer of card stock to help align the two evenly. So I added a layer of Basic White. Then I have two pieces of the Pool Party DSP from the SAB Softly Stippled Designer Series Paper. Both of the pieces are Pool Party as well. Next I added the Pool Party Crinkle Ribbon from SAB. I simply wrapped it around the intersection of the two pieces of DSP and secured on the back of the White layer. And the finishing touch are the Opague faceted Gems. These are also from SAB. I added two Pool Party and one of the orange to tie in to my oranges in the stamp.
The card base is 4 1/4 X 11, folded at 5 1/2. The layer of Basic White is 4 X 5 1/4. For the DSP, it is 3 3/4 X 2 for the floral piece and 3 3/4 X 3 for the textured piece. My stamped layer is 2 1/2 X 3 1/4 with a scrap that is 2 1/4 wide for the punched layer.
