Simple Layouts to Stunning with the Hues of Happiness Suite

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m so happy to share last night’s LIVE with you and my two “finished” cards! lol I did find all my adhesive … under my laptop! Who put that there … LOL!! Oh my gosh, sometimes I can’t believe myself.

I’ll be sharing a simple layout that you can use as inspiration to create beautiful cards using the Hues of Happiness Suite … it’s time to cut into that designer paper!

Let’s watch the video first, ready? Let’s Get Started ….

My Very Vanilla card has a card base of 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ then scored and folded at 4-1/4″ and we are creating in the vertical / portrait orientation. The card front is 4″ x 5-1/4″ and embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I did pop the entire card front up to create a little drama! You’re going to love it …

You can see I also layered the die cut flowers around our “Brushed Gold” specialty paper that I cut into a ring using the Layering Circle Dies. You can use any combination of colors with this layout … and the Hues of Happiness designer paper gives you many choices!

I finished off the card be embellishing it with the Gilded Gems …

The next card has the same dimensions as the first card … the Basic White card front of designer paper was also cut the same, and so was our gold ring. For this card we are using the horizontal / landscape orientation. I did this just to show you that the orientation does not have to change your layout …

I embellished with the Brass Butterflies this time and aligned them in my “triangle” layout … remember, that draws your eye around the card. I also decided to add a greeting as the white ties into the card base and balances it out. The greeting was stamped in Coastal Cabana which coordinates with the darker of the two flowers.

I love all the texture this card has … so pretty! Take a peek at the inside of the card, that is where I used that “partial” rose, remember to die cut them too and keep them to use inside the card or on your envelope.

I hope you enjoyed today’s cards and video … please feel free to share these with your friends. That is the best form of flattery!

Thank you for hangin’ out with me. Have a beautiful day.

Hues of Happiness Designer Paper

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today we are going to revisit the Hues of Happiness … this suite is so gorgeous and is designed so that we can create using a multitude of techniques and fun folds. I will be sharing more with you this week, and will be announcing a class during my Tuesday Night LIVE on my Facebook page!

I’m highlight the designer paper again today (You can see more HERE) with a great layout you can use at any time.

With some layering and two different patterns of designer paper, you can create this beautiful card with ease. The first layer is embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder … I love this background as this designer paper is worthy of a painting!!

I chose the floral pattern and a “brushstroke” pattern … now you know why I embossed the back drop with the Painted Texture embossing folder. The play so well together! Each piece of designer paper is matted in black to really make it pop.

The greeting comes from the stamp set included in the bundle and I used the Everyday Label punch to trim the ends and give the mat a little twist to it. I embellished the tag and card with the Classic Mat Dots in black. Try this simple layout using the amazing Hues of Happiness Designer paper or one of your favorite papers, you’ll love how easy it is, and how good it looks.

Thank you for joining me today, and I hope you join me tonight on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page for a LIVE demonstration!

Have a great day ~

It is so easy to create quick cards when you are working with stunning designer paper like the Hues of Happiness … and this is only part of the pretty paper. I used scraps to stamp my greetings on and one punch to create the layered look on the second card.
