Beautifully Happy With Two Cool Techniques!

Stamping Friends!

My final pair of cards from my Beautifully Happy & Dandy Designs DSP class feature two cool techniques for coloring in the image. I haven't done either one of these styles in a long time, but it was certainly fun to bring them back!

Beautifully Happy Cool Techniques Cards

There may not be many images in the Beautifully Happy stamp set, but there are lots of ways to use the images! The large floral can be used in full, or just partially along the edge of a die-cut layer, as you've seen on my previous class cards. These two cards feature the large floral image, but I did a little twist on adding color to the blooms and leaves. I tried the Paper Piecing technique and the Colored Vellum technique! Two cool!
Beautifully Happy cool techniques - paper piecing 1
Background Basics—I cut two 3-3/4" x 2-1/2" coordinating pieces of Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper and adhered them to a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" Fresh Freesia cardstock piece. After adding a 3-3/4" x 1/2" strip of Soft Sea Foam across the seam, I mounted the layers on to a Thick Basic White card base.

Fantastic Floral—I stamped the Beautifully Happy sentiment in Memento Black ink onto a Basic White Scalloped Contours die-cut. I colored part of the image with Stampin' Blends Markers: the leaves with Dark Soft Sea Foam and the buds with Light Fresh Freesia. I adhered a 2-3/4" x 4" piece of Petal Pink to the card front, then popped up the floral image layer with Dimensionals. 
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Beautifully Happy sentiment in Memento Black ink onto a Basic White Stylish Shapes banner die-cut and popped that up, too.

Pretty Piecing—To fill in the flowers, I stamped the large floral image in Memento Black onto another Dandy Designs Petal Pink pattern. I used my super-sharp Paper Snips to fussy cut the flowers out, right on the line, then I adhered them to the image with Liquid Multipurpose Glue. I love this fun way to add color and texture to a focal point! 
Finishing Touches—I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones: one on the flower center and two above the blooms. So sparkly!
The supplies for this card will be included in the 5-Card Kit and 10-Card Kit!
Beautifully Happy cool techniques - vellum coloring 1
Two Cool—My second card has a very similar layout. This time I adhered 3-3/4" x 2-3/4" and 3-3/4" and 2-1/4" pieces of Dandy Designs DSP to a Coastal Cabana layer. The center strip is in Pool Party cardstock. I popped up a Basic White Scalloped Contours die-cut onto the card front, without any stamping on it.

Vellum Coloring—This time, I stamped the flowers in Memento Black ink onto a 3" x 4-1/4" piece of Vellum cardstock. I let it dry thoroughly, then TURNED it over and colored the image on the back side with Stampin' Blends Markers. I colored the leaves with Dark Granny Apple Green, the flowers with Light Bermuda Bay and the buds with Light Night of Navy. I attached the layer with Glue Dots, strategically placed behind the colored buds and leaves, so they were less noticeable through the vellum. 

Finishing Touches—Notice that my Iridescent Rhinestone in the center almost looks like a different gem? I colored the center of the bloom with Night of Navy Blends and the color shines through the rhinestone. Too Cool! You could also actually color the rhinestone with the Blends Marker to change the color.
You'll get supplies to try this card with the 10-Card Kit!
