Stamp Review Crew: Happy Congratulations Edition

http://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/2014/03/stamp-review-crew-bonus-edition-happy.html


Welcome to a Bonus Blog Hop from the Stamp Review Crew, it's the Happy Congratulations Edition, featuring one of my favorite sets from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog. Happy Congratulations is a fun, light hearted set with just four images, two sentiments and two images to create a paper lantern banner.

Happy Congratulations with its banner and celebratory sentiments is a versatile stamp set and can be used for many different occasions. This Red, White and Blue card could be a birthday card, a Fourth of July invitation or even a graduation card, if your school has the same colors as my kids! I added a lot of sparkle to this card by Heat Embossing the background lantern string in Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, as well as adding Dazzling Detail to the paper lanterns on the tag element and finishing the ribbon tie with a Glimmer Brad.

Recipe:
Stamps: Happy Congratulations, Seasonal Sayings
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Midnight Muse,
Whisper White

Ink: Midnight Muse, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White Craft
Accessories: Angle Tag Topper Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Dazzling Details, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, White Embossing Powder, Glimmer Brads Brights, Midnight Muse Satin Stitched Ribbon, White Baker's Twine

 Happy Congratulations is a stamp set that is versatile to many different styles as well. This Congratulations card is stamped in a shabby chic style with lots of layers and sponging. I stamped the paper lanterns onto a piece of pattern paper from Modern Medley DSP and then punched them out, added some sponging and lot of crinkled distressing. Each of the lanterns are also finished with a swipe of Dazzling Detail. I stamped the lantern string image across all the layers on the card and then adhered the lanterns passing in and out of the frame element.

Recipe:
Stamps: Happy Congratulations, En Francais background
Cardstock: Soft Suede, Crisp Cantaloupe, Very Vanilla, Modern Medley DSP, In Color DSP
Ink: Soft Suede, Crisp Cantaloupe
Accessories: Deco Labels Thinlets, 3/4" Circle Punch, Rhinestone Jewels, Dazzling Details, Paper Doilies

The main reason I purchased the Happy Congratulations stamp set is this beautiful sentiment image - May happiness be your destination. Love! I stamped the sentiment onto a banner here and used it for the Gift Tag on this fun Gift Bag from the February Paper Pumpkin kit. The Felt Ball Banner and Linen Thread are from one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items you can choose with a qualifying order. (Don't forget SAB ends on March 31st!)
