My card today features the new Happy Place and coordinating Happy Doodles Die Set. It's Friday, and that means there's a new Viva la Verve sketch and this sweet layout from Anya just called my name. I started by stamping the single flower from Happy Place on soft sky, tangerine tango and so saffron cardstock, then punching out with a 1-1/8 circle punch. Next I stamped the flower three times in a row on a piece of crumb cake and colored all the stamped pieces with markers. I cut out the butterfly from the Happy Doodles Die Set, then stamped the coordinating butterfly stamp and also colored with markers.
The sentiment is stamped on cream cardstock and I stamped the flower again at the bottom of the sentiment panel in the coordinating ink colors. Each panel is sponged lightly with walnut distress stain and I accented a lot of the stamping with glossy accents. For the sky, I started with soft sky card stock and then used one of the butterfly die cuts from the Happy Doodles Die Set as a stencil to sponge soft sky ink across the page to form a cloudy background. A little twine and some goosebump rhinestones and I was finished.
Before I leave you with the hop info, I thought I'd let you know all of our new releases are on SALE! Through the end of July, you can buy the new release stamp and die sets individually at a 10% discount, or double your fun and purchase the whole enchilada at a 20% discount. Woohoo!
