Some happy cards

Ok, so maybe I'm not done with summer after all (see my last post about Fall weather arriving: because I just had to sit and make some colorful, happy sentiments that look more spring- and summer-like than all those wonderfully rich Fall colors.  Light, easy, colorful = spring and summer; dark, rich, heavy and gorgeous = fall.  Then there's winter:  Red and green because I love Christmas!!!  LOLOL! 

Anyway!  :D I used the September Nat'l Stamping Month Special, You Are My Happy:

The birthday gift stamp is from You Are My Happy and so is the parenthesis; I also used Heartfelt Birthday Wish (M1033, available HERE) for the sentiment.

I did the very same thing on three separate cards, using different colors of ink and coloring the images in with regular colored pencils, nothing fancy.  There is no dimension to these cards, they are flat as can be, and I think they're perfect.  This Pacifica ink with a green colored pencil is my favorite of the three different color options I used. 

Then, I used the butterfly from the You Are My Happy, as well.  On the left-sided card I used Lagoon, Sunset, and Smoothie inks.  On the right-sided card, I used black ink and various CTMH alcohol markers.  I also used CTMH's twine.

This one uses Sunset ink and the same color of twine on two of the stamps from You Are My Happy. 

With a $50 order you can have the You Are My Happy stamp set trio for just $10.  Shop for that HERE.  Once you have $50 of product in your shopping cart this special should pop up, as will the September Stamp Of The Month for just $5. 
Thanks for stopping by and leaving love!


  1. Are you posting those on your etsy shop? I love, love, love the gift ones.

  2. I really like the simplicity of that last one - great sentiment and a bit of twine. I am a sucker for a bit of twine :)
