Hi! Welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Happiness Abounds! I’m Sara Levin the artful inker an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in the US. Today, the Stamping Sunday design team are sharing inspiration using products that we were able to pre-order from the Stampin’ Up! 2022-23 Annual Catalog. Let’s take a look at my Happiness Abounds creations!
Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Happiness Abounds
Happiness Abound Card
When I started thinking about making this card, I was all about being able to use a couple of the dies. I wanted to give them a run through and see what they could do. Do you do that when you get new dies?
Since I had used bold colors the last time I used Happiness Abounds, I decided to use a neutral colors with gold as the accent.
As you can see, I added Gilded Leafing to the die cut edge and the leaves. Check out the video below for my tips.
I just love this spiral bound paper look that you can get with one of the Blossoming Happiness strip dies! That alone could have made me purchase the dies — it’s such a versatile piece.
But then, there’s the largest die — I used it to create an all over lacy background. I’m pretty sure I’ll be used this die a lot.
Happiness Abounds Treat Bag
Next, I kept the same Crumb Cake and gold color scheme and created this treat bag or gift bag. It is perfect for giving a little something to a friend or coworker. Or, use this bag as part of your table decorations for a gathering.
Again, I used the Blossoming Happiness Dies. Don’t you just love the look of that cut out on the front of the bag!?!
After stamping the Happiness Abounds flower twice, I trimmed part of one and used my Take Your Pick to give it some dimension before layering the two together.
And at the top, I’ve closed and embellished the bag with some Gold Shimmer Ribbon.
