Hues of Happiness - Stamp ' n' Hop Blog Hop - DSP

 Hi Everyone,

For this month's Blog Hop with Stamp 'n' Hop we are showing off Designer Series Paper and my absolute favourite in the new Annual Catalogue is Hues of Happiness, it just makes me smile it's so pretty, I'm half way through my second pack already!! This time, I've used it to make a wedding card and picked out the pool party for my card base and I've used the Happiness Abounds stamp set and dies too. Let me show you how I made it.


1 piece of pool party card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", 1 piece 4 1/8" x 2 3/4"
1 piece of basic white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", 1 piece 3 7/8" x 2 1/2", scrap for the sentiment
1 piece of dsp 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", scraps to die cut/fussy cut some flowers
Happiness Abounds stamp set
Blossoming Happiness dies
Paper snips
Simply Scored
Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine
Night of Navy ink
Multipurpose adhesive
Glossy Dots
Double Oval Punch


On the long side score the card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Adhere the dsp to the card front.

Run the smallest piece of basic white through the Stampin' Cut and Emboss with the lattice work die and then adhere this to the pool party mat and add to the centre of the card front.

Die cut or fussy cut some flowers and leaves from the dsp and add to the lattice layer with dimensionals.

Stamp a sentiment on a scrap of basic white using night of navy ink and punch out with the scalloped oval punch and add to the centre of the card using dimensionals.

Stamp a sentiment on the remaining piece of basic white and add some flowers too and adhere to the inside of the card.

I really hope that you like my pretty card, please pop over and see what everyone else has been making too:
