Stampin' Up! Honeycomb Happiness Balloon Card with How To Video

Who do you know who needs a little encouragement? It's easier to "hang in there" when we know someone is cheering us on. You can make a bunch of these Hang in There cards because they are nice and quick. I used the stamp set called Honeycomb Happiness which is a Sale-a-bration 2016 rewards item for placing a $50 product increment on your order. In fact, you get a Sale-a-bration item for EACH $50 product increment on your order so it's a great time of year to stock up on those items that you use all year long such as ink, cardstock and envelopes. Check out what you can get for free by clicking on Sale-a-bration 2016. And, to see some additional Limited Items click HERE. Enjoy the how to video!!

Stampin' Up! Honeycomb Happiness, Stamping with Embossing Folders and the How To Video

Honeycomb Happiness is a 2016 Sale-a-bration set that is all about CUTE!!! For this card, I stamped the background with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder for kind of a chicken wire look. The little chick was painted with the Clear Wink of Stella so she's quite sparkly in real life. I am always so impressed by the lovely stamp sets that Stampin' Up! puts into their Sale-a-bration line up. There were so many "must-haves" this year. Would you like a quick look at them all? Just click on Sale-a-bration 2016 to see the brochure and then click on Limited Edition Sale-a-bration to see what Stampin' Up! brought into the line up for Feb 16-March 31.

The how to video below includes all the measurements and the technique I used to stamp with my embossing folder. I'll also show you how to cut a scalloped square to the size you want with our Square Collection Framelits.

Stamping to Share Swap Cards for February 2016 - Part Two

Here we go . . . part two of the Birthday Swaps our group did. Enjoy!!!

Stacey's card really pops with color! She used the Party Wishes Bundle with the Confetti Embossing Folder. I love how she sponged on the color and accented the cake with stamped sprinkles and loops of the It's My Party Twine. Although in the photo, the candle appears to be stamped directly onto the white panel, it's actually a candle that was stamped on scrap Whisper White and then punched out with the candle punch.

Dawn's card is so awesome because you can take the designer series paper from the 12x12 It's My Party stack and coordinate it with multiple card bases as there are so many colors that the confetti coordinates with. Great for using those card stock packs that contain multiple colors of cardstock such as the It's My Party card stock pack! She used sentiments from Party Wishes and Sky is the Limit.

Josie paired Mint Macaron with Wisteria Wonder for this soothing card that uses the Number of Years Bundle. If you are going to get bent out of shape over birthdays . . . just keep on turning 29! The slim strip of designer paper running through the middle of the card is from the paper pack called Have a Cuppa.

Another sweet coffee card! This one created by Cindy who was obviously busy at the Big Shot Machine for some time! LOVE the color combo which just pops on the Soft Suede card base. Love the way she customizes each cup with something special, too. The sentiment is from the You're So Lovely stamp set.

Mary's card is a starburst of fun and color radiating out from an oval cut out. She jazzed up the Confetti Embossing Folder with the Corner Trio Punch, lots of awesome sponged on color and used one of the Party Pop Up Thinlit Dies to make her central cake image. Even the sentiment, candles and cake stand pop with color!!

Judy's Fun Fold card features lots of butterflies . . . it's a little hard to see in the photo, but even the Cajun Craze background panel was embossed with butterflies from the Fluttering Embossing Folder. She paper square that highlights the central butterfly is from the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper. Just gorgeous!

And finally, my card!! It uses the Balloon Celebration Bundle and I featured it along with the How To Video on THIS POST.

Thank you so much for stopping by! It is most appreciated by me and by my entire group of Stamping to Share Swappers!! Have a great day!
