The birds and flowers on my cards have all been cut from the DSP.

For my second card, I have used some of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP, and overlaid a piece of embossed Vellum, making the DSP more subtle.  Again, the bird and flowers were cut from the Bird Ballad DSP.

And my third card is one I have shared before in a previous post, but I thought I would go nicely as a set with these two.

This is a masculine card which combines the fussy cut bird from the Bird Ballad DSP, with some of the woodgrain and music note DSP from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Pocketful of Happiness!

Pocketful of Happiness Stampin' Up! 2019 Annual Catalogue Christina Barnes Dot Dot Stamping
We have been loving the start of spring here in our beautiful part of southern Australia, the weather is already warming up and we have been making the most of the sunshine!
We went on a foraging expedition, with a local lady who specialises in showing people how to find edible weeds, flowers, and some of our Australian bush food that many people are unaware of.  It was a fantastic morning, very educational as well as fun, and we came home with yummy fresh salad for lunch, and lots of ideas.  Perhaps my title should be pocketS full of happiness!  Pockets, and bags, all full of happy, yummy goodness.

So to continue on with the spring theme of this post, I made this card using the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set.
Pocketful of Happiness Card Scripty Embossing Folder Stitched Rectangle Dies Stampin' Up! 2019 Annual Catalogue Christina Barnes Dot Dot Stamping

It’s such a gorgeous stamp set, I love the simplicity of it, yet it is lovely to colour and create happy cards with.
My stamping wasn’t very accurate, it’s kind of double stamped in a couple of places, but I wanted to use it anyway.  It’s handmade!!
I have coloured the stamped images with Stampin’ Blends, and then given the flowers a touch of Wink of Stella to add some shimmer.
The top panel was die cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  And the layer underneath is embossed using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.

If you would like to buy products to make this simple card, you can find them in my online store here.  And please contact me if you have any questions about my cards or how to order, I happy to help in any way I can.

Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Stamping!

Seaside Spray is our colour today, and yes, it’s another pretty colour.

My card uses the Magnolia Memory Dies combined with the Scripty Embossing Folder.

Another favourite, I love the Scripty Embossing Folder, it creates a lovely, subtle texture to the background.  I am starting to sound a bit repetitive, they all seem to be my favourites!  So many beautiful new things, it’s hard to choose just one favourite.

If you would like to see more ideas using Seaside Spray, head on over the Catherine’s blog where she has a list of everyone taking part.
Happy stamping!
