Happy Hello to you! 🙂 Not sure if this card could get any “brighter” do you think?Oh I’m sure I could have added some bling and that would do the trick, but today I wanted to put together some bright, happy colors to wake you up and hope you woke up on the right side of the bed and the wrong. That would be not be good.
I sometimes forget that I have “background” stamps even though when I bought them, I thought “ewww yea, this would be so cool!” Then they get stored and then somehow they get “forgotten!” Do you ever have that happen? Well, it’s not nice of us to just let them sit there all season and then “see them again” and go, gosh I need to showcase you! So, today this is one that was the victim of being “ignored.” I know…terrible. BUT, I think those little dots and circles are fun to stamp all around the card area, using any color imaginable! 🙂 So I went to town. THEN, I thought I’m going to use my scribbles die since they’re in the “circle” form. I used four colors on the whisper white and flirty flamingo was one, you have to look close to see it, but it’s there.
Then I die cut out the happy and stamped the Hello from the Crazy About You stamp set, it has hundreds of little sentiment stamps in it, well not 100’s, but close. 🙂 You need to have it, I’m not kidding. I used Cucumber Crush because I have a “crush” on that green! It’s so vibrant and cheery! And vivid and fun. I used the all NEW Classic Label punch for sentiments or anything that you want “slender” and it works so awesome! I’ve been using it all weekend on projects I’m doing and it’s wonderful. Fits those narrow small sentiments like a kid glove. Yes, kid glove.
I just used the one end and wacked the other end off. Attached it to my “happy” with the fine tip glue pen. And by the way, that thing is awesome. When I first bought it last year, I was having some fits with it, only because it was “pilot error.” ME. You gotta be careful not to squeeze it out too quickly, just squeeze lightly and it will flow like you want it to. Just be gentle. THEN right away when you’ve attached everything, put the top back on! That’s critical. I attached some cucumber crush twine and then place THREE Flirty Flamingo enamel DOTS on the card in mysterious places. Can you find them? How many? Since I used Flirty on my card circles, I needed to coordinate Flirty somewhere else. So, good luck. This might give it away where they are.
I just think it’s a HAPPY card to wish you a Happy Hello today and to brighten your day with some very BRIGHT colors! Maybe a bit “busy” but that’s what my goal was. Wink! wink!
I think open circles would be fun to stamp in a neutral color like crumb cake and then shade them in with a blender pen or the aqua painter for funsies in any color you want to. 🙂
I hope you have a wonderfully, joyful Monday and hope my card “woke you up” and made you smile! All the products are below for your viewing.
Thanks so much for the visit and I’ll see you tomorrow at MyStampinHeart!
Hugs and love everyone,
