Here we go!

So – let’s start off by taking a peek at this ADORABLE, very usable Happy Everything stamp set. 

There are so many BEAUTIFUL items have already been created with this it!!!  Today, I chose to create some bright, happy cards with this exclusive stamp set. 

Here they are. 

Did you notice???  These cards are the EXACT same card design...just turned 1/4 turn!J
They card pattern I used comes from our FABULOUS How-To-Book, Make It From Your Heart, volume 2....and I used pattern #25. 

I LOVE how much different the 2nd card can look!!  Which one do you like better???

Let's take a closer look....

I added a background of Dry embossed on this card.  I used the Honeycomb embossing folder & was amazed at how much of a different look it created with that one piece of paper! 

You can also see I used the Lagoon Hearts washi tape (cut in half) on this card. 

I used this card for one of my home gatherings recently, and I needed a bit faster of a card - since there were a lot of people attending.  

That's why you see the Cricut cut flower. J Still beautiful (vs. stamping a flower) but a lot quicker to create!!

(I LOVE the chevron, sunset washi tape on this card!) 

****Just a note - the Blossom paper pack will soon be retiring as well (it's on backorder til July 10th at the time of this post)!  This is a FAVORITE paper pack of mine, and many of my customers! 

 This is a while supplies last item - so make sure to contact your own CTMH consultant today to get yours before they are gone!  

Have fun creating with this BEAUTIFUL Happy Everything stamp set!!   J

  1. Such fun and cheerful cards. Great job!

  2. Love the honeycomb with the blossom paper!! I may just have to lift this card.

  3. Hmmm, not sure I can pick, they are both adorable! I do like the layers of the first one a lot though

  4. I love them both (please don't make me choose! LOL).

  5. Very cute cards! What a difference the 1/4 turn makes. Love the torn paper too.

  6. Beautiful cards! Love the textures and all the layering.

  7. Love how a simple change of background color changes the whole look
