Stampin' UP! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop- Color Me Happy

Hey there stampers!  Welcome back to another Stampin' UP! Artisan Design Team Blog hop!  If you are hopping with us today then you may have arrived here from the fabulous Cathy Caines.  Isn't she amazing? As we are a group of 20 demonstrators from around the world- our blogs are written in many different languages.  Please be sure to use Google Translate so that you can follow along in your language.  You don't wanna miss out on any of the fabulous details!

For our hop today, I have chosen to create with the Color Me Happy Project Kit and coordinating Color Me Happy Stamp Set.  This project kit is actually intended to create a set of 16 cards (4 each of 4 designs).  Since the card bases in the kit come pre printed with different patterns- they're perfect to use as designer series paper.

To create my card- I began with a 4-1/4" square Pink Pirouette card base.  I chose Watercolor Paper for the top layer as it adds texture to the card.  Using the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Collection, I created a series of hearts.  Each heart was layered onto the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.  A border was sewn and the edges of the Watercolor Paper were distressed using Paper Snips.

As you can see- I've added some of my favorite embellishment- Gold Metallic Thread.  A little bit harder to see in the picture is the Clear Wink of Stella splatter all over the watercolor layer.  This adds a little bit of shimmer!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will join us on our journey around the world today!  The fabulous Holly Stene will be your next stop on the hop.  Check it out!  She has a gorgeous project in store!
