Oh Happy Day Kit!

It is a rare novelty that I get to sit and just craft “for fun”… however that is how I spent my raging Saturday night this week! LOL!

Unfortunately this week, Baby INK was unwell which meant I couldn’t go to work so I had an extra day at home to potter, do housework, catch up on things which in turn allowed me to have some free time on the weekend. With no stamp clubs or classes for a few weeks, I took the opportunity to do some crafting just for fun. I had no ideas or themes in mind, so instead I grabbed the Stampin’ Up! Oh Happy Day Kit, that I have had for AGES! and proceeded to create the cards. What I love most about the kits is that everything you need to create 20, yes 20 cards is in the kit, besides a little bit of adhesive! In the Oh Happy Day Kit, you receive the following:

  • 20 card bases
  • 20 kraft envelopes
  • 13 piece photopolymer stamp set
  • die-cut glittered chipboard shapes (these was gorgeous!)
  • embossed sheets
  • printed die-cut images
  • die-cut gold foil sheet
  • die-cut white sheets
  • Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Spot
  • coloured doilies
  • baker’s twine
  • glittered dots (I want more of these!)
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals and;
  • an acrylic stamp block.

HOW AMAZING IS THAT!! Plus, you also receive a full set of instructions to create the cards or you can go your own way and make the cards however you like! For the ease of my crafting last night, I followed the instructions 99% of the time to create the cards. I switched a few sentiments up here and there but the designs of the cards are as per the instructions.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this kit so much I couldn’t wait to show you all the cards I made!

How awesome is that! So many different cards for so many different occasions. The stamps that came with the kit are so versatile, I don’t think I’ll be getting rid of them in a hurry!

There are many benefits to the Stampin’ Up! card kits; they’re great as a gift to your crafty friend, the perfect product to start with for a beginner (old or young!), if you love to craft but feel you’re time poor, kits have everything prepared so you can hit the ground running and create 20 cards in a few hours to keep your stash stocked for the months ahead… or the one I love the best, split the cost of a kit with your friend and spend a day crafting the kit together!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed seeing the Oh Happy Day Kit as much as I enjoyed making it!

Happy Crafting,

 

 

What Will You Stamp? #106 – Delicate Details

Hello! Welcome to my first official post as a Design Team member over at What Will You Stamp? I’m super excited to be a part of the team and look forward to sharing my creations with you for the WWYS challenges.

This week’s challenge over at What Will You Stamp? is using the Delicate Details stamp set (#WWYS106) that you can earn for FREE during Sale-a-bration, which ends on the 31st March 2017.

I’ve seen lots of creations using this stamp set since it was released and I initially set out to do something bright and colourful but as you’ll see, my card didn’t end up that way at all. It amazes my how the creative process works and sometimes what you create is so far from what you thought you were going to create.

My card today features the Delicate Details stamp set combined with the gorgeous Brushwork Alphabet stamp set. It is a stunning font to use on your projects! As you can see, my card is far from bright and colourful. HA!

The colours I used in my card today are Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Gold, lots and lots of gold!!! I heat embossed the lace border and the sentiment using gold embossing powder. Gold embossing powder is just stunning. I added a few gold sequins from the sequin trim roll to fill in some of the white space and add some extra texture and dimension to the card.

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Don’t forget to pop on over to the What Will You Stamp? Blog and check out the other creations for this challenge… and if you’ve got the Delicate Details stamp set, why don’t you join in our challenge? Would love to see what you create!

Happy Crafting,
