Happiness Abounds Sale-a-bration Card

Every Wednesday morning at 9am(-ish) Pacific Time I craft LIVE on FB and You Tube. If you didn’t catch my video this morning you can see the card I created below. It was created using the Happiness abounds Bundle and the versatile Silver & Gold 6X6 Sale-a-bration DSP.

I created the background by colouring the Silver & Gold DSP with Orchid Oasis and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Combos. I actually coloured one large piece of DSP and then cut it into 3/4″ strips, flipping some of them before gluing them.

You can see exactly how I created this card in this video replay. All of the supplies I used to create today’s card are listed below as well as a printable PDF tutorial card.

You can place an order by contacting me directly or clicking on the image(s) below.


Paper Snips

$15.00

In the video I didn’t glue my first DSP strip correctly, so I had to add a 5th strip. Below you can see a version with the strips spaced the way I had intended. Creating the card this way you only need a 3″ X 4-1/2″ piece of DSP (which means you can actually make 2 cards from one piece of DSP). I used Orchid Oasis and Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Combos to colour this one.

Remember that this month there are so many reasons to place an order – FREE Sale-a-bration Items for $60+CAD orders and when you use my host code I will also send you the link to this fabulous 30 card Tutorial Bundle as a thank you!

I also have a great Stamp Camp coming up at the end of the summer ( registration is open now) featuring the Joyful Flurry bundle.
