Combine Hues of Happiness with Design a Daydream for a Dreamy Floral Greeting Card


  • Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds Bundle
  • New Kit Added - A Million Thanks
  • Refresh your colors with the In Color Starter Kit Special! 
I can't stop playing with the Hues Of Happiness Suite from the Stampin' Up! Annual catalog that launched 3 May 2022.  Today I paired floral elements die cut from the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper with a print from the Design a Daydream 12 X 12 Designer Series Paper that can be earned as a Host Reward with a $150 order, less tax and shipping.  I picked a beautiful print from the Design a Daydream collection to showcase the florals die cuts from Hues of Happiness,  I added a sheer Pool Party Ribbon, and stamped sentiments from the Happiness Abounds and the Forever Fern Stamp Sets in Gorgeous Grape Ink onto a stitched circle die cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies.  I added a couple of Glossy Dots as accents to the corner of the card, and my cards were finished!  I love how these cards turned out!  I ordered more Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper as soon as ordering opened on 3 May 2022 -- yes, I admit it.  I got up at 4 am to make sure I was one of the first in line to place an order from the full selection in the new catalog.  Now I need to find the patients to wait until all the rest of my new products arrive to use them with the items from my Demonstrator preorder last month!

To create today's card, I used a base card of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock.  Then a layer of Coastal Cabana.  Then I selected a print from the Design a Daydream 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper Pack -- a Host Reward you can purchase at a discount with a $150 or more order, (less tax and shipping). This is a special set of Designer Series Papers that includes 48 sheets (vs. our normal 12 X 12 packs which include 12 double-sided sheets) with 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  I'm in love with the designs, and they coordinate beautifully with other products in our product line, as you can see from today's sample.

Then, I stamped sentiments using Gorgeous Grape Ink onto a stitched die cut circle of Basic White cardstock.   I used dies from the Happiness Abounds bundle to die cut floral images and leaves from the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper and attached them to a circle die cut, and then popped this piece up on Dimensional.

To complete the card, I cut a slit in the die cut circle under the bow, which allowed me to thread one side of the ribbon under the florals and the bow covered the small slit.  I used the 3/8" Pool Party Sheer Ribbon, which complimented the florals and prints in this card beautifully.  To add a little bling, I used two sizes of the Glossy Dots on an upper portion of the die cut sentiment circle.  These items are all available in the recently launches 2022-2023 Stampin' Up1 Annual Catalog.

Below are the tools used to create these cards.
