Hi, everyone! Today, I have this bright and busy card for you created using our Happy Place stamps. If you’re following us on IG, I did say that I had another card for today but I changed my mind because I fell in love with this project. The blue Smiling Cosmos project peek that you got yesterday will be posted tomorrow on our Youtube Channel (so stay tuned!).

This card was a bit involved with all the different products used. However, it was really fun to make and I love the bright results. Also, this was a great project to showcase how to stretch your Happy Place stamps! You can just partially ink/emboss the large image from this set to selectively use the florals. I’m a sucker for peonies so this was a no brainer.
I started off by selectively embossing the florals from the large image from this set. I used our Rose Gold Embossing Powder for this. Next I watercolored the peonies using Peony Color Bursts (and Sap Green for the leaves). Once colored, I die cut the florals and then trimmed off the book portions.
Next, I stamped a Toned Hearts panel using our Peony Collection layering inks. Then I die cut a rectangular stitched panel using the third largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Small die collection. This is going to be my sentiment panel. I did not film any of this for time purposes.
Next, I rose gold embossed the sentiment from our Hustle and Grind set onto my stitched panel. Then I popped this panel up on my Toned Hearts background as well as my peony clusters. For an additional pop up color, I stamped and copic colored three butterflies from our Beautiful Butterflies 3 set and popped those up on my card in a visual triangle. Lastly (for the card front), I added some of our Glass Slippers sequins for a bling effect.
Since I added our Beautiful Butterflies 3 to this card, I also decided to add our a Morpho Pop Up Butterfly inside my card for that wow effect. I die cut my two detailed wing pieces onto white cardstock. Then I blended some Bright Emerald and Hot Tourmaline Dye Ink to the wings. Once assembled, I adhered the two pieces to the inside of my card completing my project.
I hope you guys enjoyed today’s post! It was a bit more busier than my usual style but I love the results. I hope you guys did, too!
