Hello friends! Welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop. In this hop we are featuring products from the Snowflake Showcase promotion. These products are available to purchase TODAY, November 1! All items are offered while supplies last.
Happiness Surrounds is the stamp set I got to play with for this round. We were asked to create at least one project only using the stamp set and then one project using the stamp set and the dies. This set is so versatile. I decided to create projects that can be used year round … not just for winter. Are you ready to see some BRIGHT projects. Lol. Got your shades ready? These cards are blinding but I love how saturated these colors look together.
Paint, paint paint! The background for the Positive Thoughts card is pretty simple to make. You’ll need a wide (about 1”) flat paint brush. I used Stampin’ Up! classic ink to paint the stripes directly onto watercolor paper. I tried to keep the paint fairly dry to create a hard lines between colors. The wetter the paint, the soupier it gets. You may need to test a few times on basic scrap paper to get the consistency right. I painted a full sheet of the watercolor paper and then cut down to size to create the hard edges on the right and left. The colors used are: Calypso Coral, Pineapple Punch and Pumpkin Pie.
The medallion image has been stamped in black and then accented with black faceted dots.
I stamped the border image from this set along the left and ride sides of the card using the Stamparatus to easily repeat. Then, I covered most of this image up with the watercolor piece so that only a small bit of it shows to create a little scallop border.
This bright Congratulations card using the dies to layer and accent the black stamped image. I was going for bright little bursts of flowers and I think I achieved the look! Each flower is first stamped and heat embossed in with black emboss powder. Then I added a little watercolor top of each flower, trying to have each color bleed into the next. Each flower center has a white pearl added that has been colored in the coordinating Stampin’ Blend color. A full list of colors and card making supplies can be found below.

Thank you for spending a minute with me. I hope you've found some inspiration to help you in your crafting. Up next is fellow artisan, Connie Collins. Her take using the Snow is Glistening stamp set is so warm and cozy. I love it!
