I decided to use the Be Happy stamp set as it is one that I have found myself going back to over and over!  I love the simple images which can be used as a focal point or as a background, and I really love all the great greetings in the set – so versatile!

Be Happy Hello there


This first card was created for my team swap last week.  I stamped the main image from the set as a background on the Basic Grey cardfront, and then used one of the smaller images and a greeting on the label. You will also see a little touch of a new colour – Smoky Slate!

Stamps: Be Happy; Cardstock: Basic Grey, Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate, So Saffron & Whisper White; Ink: Basic Grey, So Saffron, Smoky Slate; Other: Big Shot, Labels Collection Framelit Dies, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, White Bakers Twine, Pearls

Be Happy Congratulations 2This one was created to congratulate a team member on her recent success.  This time I have used the stamp set to create the top and bottom borders.  I’ve also used the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper which co-ordinates well with the Be Happy set.

Stamps: Be Happy; Cardstock: Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla & Modern Medley DSP; Ink: Wisteria Wonder; Other: Scallop Circle Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Jumbo Pearls

Curry Happy DayI actually shared this card the other day, but just in case you missed it, I thought I would add it in here again!
