1/16 Happy Day Cards

This is one of the cards that my customers made at my Spring/Summer Open House. I just LOVE how bright and cheerful this card is and we decorated the inside so cutely, too. I got the idea for this card from ltecler at SCS. You can see her card HERE. I changed a few things and simpled it up just. But, I must admit - I love how mine turned out. I think one of the cutest things about Lori's card were those painted toes. My customers got such a kick out of this.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Happy Heart Day
Paper: Only Orange, Gable Green, Going Gray, Whisper White, Rose Red Designer Prints
Ink: Basic Black, Rose Red

Here's another image from the Happy Heart Day set. Such a sweet little mouse, isn't he? My friend Tracy will probably NOT be buying this set just because of this one particular stamp. She HATES mice. I guess it is kind of like how I am with spiders. I've passed on purchasing sets with spiders in them, too. No matter how "cute" they are! lol! This card got its design and color combo from page 102 of the 2005/2006 catalog. I love to go back and page through me old catalogs and then *remake* the card with current stamp sets. Easy peasy and so much fun!

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Happy Heart Day
Paper: Brilliant Blue, Rose Red, Old Olive, Naturals White
Ink: StazOn Black
Accessories: Button, Linen Thread, Aquapainter
Technique: Watercoloring

This is my last Happy Heart Day card to show to you today. Again, such a simple little design. I helped my 4 year old neice make some cards similar to this to give to her mom. She did give one to her mom. The other one she gave to me . . . wasn't that sweet! This is a little 3x3 card . . . perfect size to hook onto a gift bag or to attach to a little gift.

Card Supplies:
Stamps: Happy Heart Day

I combined two challenges at SCS to make this card. The color challenge . . . which I did not get to yesterday, was to use Rose Red, Sage Shadow and Apricot Appeal. I used my Time Well Spent Level Three Hostess Set to make this card in the sketch challenge format. I love the way the black sets it all off!

Supplies I used to make this card:

Stamp Sets: Curvy Verses, Time Well Spent Paper: Rose Red, Sage Shadow, Whisper White, Basic Black Ink: StazOn Black, Rose Red, Appricot Appeal, Sage Shadow Accessories: 1/8" hole punch to punch out accents on the flower and the butterfly, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Corner Rounder to make the scallops on the sage panel, ribbon, pretties kit half-back pearl
