Hi! I’m Sara Levin theartfulinker an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in the US. Welcome to my blog! Today is the OSAT Blog Hop Happiness Is and I’m using Blessings of Home. We’re showcasing some of our favorites from the January June 2022 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog!! I’ve used Blessings of Home for my cards and video. Let’s take a look!
Blessings of Home for OSAT Blog Hop Happiness Is
Blessings of Home Card 1
For a while, I was overthinking “happiness is”. Then I realized that happiness is new card making supplies. If you’re a cardmaker you totally understand. And if you’re new to card making, think of it like bringing home a new outfit, pair of shoes and accessories. New supplies not only give you new images and accessories but, you can always use them with some of your favorite techniques for a new look.
Here, I’ve transferred some of the ideas that I used for my Christmas cards to this card using Blessings of Home. I’m quite pleased with the dramatic look created with the gold and black!
If you haven’t yet found the Gold and Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper in the Annual Catalog, you are missing out! This paper has such great visual texture. I’ve used it here to add some Flowers of Home die cut elements.
And that Hive 3D Embossing Folder! Love, love, love the small scale of the design and the texture. Frankly, I’m surprised I haven’t used it on everything. On this card, I added some shabby embossing in gold to create another layer of visual texture.
Blessings of Home Card 2
This second card brings the drama in another way. It’s almost but not quite clean and simple.
First, I created this center panel of color for an ink blending ombre. It’s the same idea that I used on this card
Then, I used the Blessings of Home images as a simple black outline.
By using strips for the sentiment, I continued the clean look of the card. By adding simple Matte Black Dots, I’ve embellished but again not taken away from the overall clean look. That’s a real trick for me as I usually like layer upon layer of textural pieces.
