I chose to use the Happy Celebrations stamp set and Celebrations Duo Textured Embossing Folders for my projects. This stamp set has a great mix of painterly images, large fonts and works beautifully with the font matching embossing folders.
I have also used some of the items from the Cupcakes and Carousels Embellishment kit to embellish each of the three cards.
Crumb Cake and Pool Party are a match made in heaven on this first card. I was also trying to catch up on birthday cards - you can never have too many of those!
And while I didn't use the Cool Treats stamp set for this hop, I did use the Tasty Treats DSP as inspiration for my colour schemes. I am slowly, slowly learning to chop and use my DSP instead of just admiring it in it's packet!
I went all geometrical for my second card. I love the fun colours and play of shapes over the large "happy" sentiment. I have used Pool Party again and teamed it with Watermelon Wonder as a last hoorah before that colour leaves us at the end of the month!
My last card was a mash of the first two - DSP and plenty of shapes! I love how the debossed sentiments stand out beneath all my stamping. It is a fun alternative to adding sentiment banners for a change.
I am delighted that the Happy Celebrations stamp set and Celebrations Duo Textured Embossing Folders are carrying through to the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalogue. I have a lot more playing to do with them yet!
