Chocolate with Happy Times

Who would think Chocolate would work with Happy Times?  After I made a layout with our Kraft papers, I tried Chocolate and I think it works well!

Happy Times Card 4

Here’s another fun Happy Times Card. It’s the 4th card in the workshop.

Card 4

I’ve made two cards, one matching and one where I changed a few things. Here’s Card A:

Card 4a

Don’t you just love the gold pennants!  I really like the way they show up.  Used the gold marker to doing the doodling.

Card 4a1

Card 4a2

This card uses a M-Stamp which there are several choices to use!  If you make them at my house, you’ll have choices!!  Card B:

Card 4b

I used the black and gold ribbon and I just loved how it looks!!  I added the black journaling pen in to the gold doodling.  And I love glitter so the retired glitter gems for this.

Card 4b1

Card 4b2

Gotta love me some Happy Time paper!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Flowers with Happy Times Stamp

I have to do a quick post on the awesome flowers from the Happy Times Stamp Set.  While I have to fussy cut them, I love how you can shape them and give them dimension this way:


I use my piercing tool but anything round and even your fingers will allow you to roll/shape the petals and leaves.

Card 4b1

I found that I liked to distressed the edges of the cut flowers and leaves with a sponge dauber and ink pads.  I liked the shading and feel like it make my fussy cutting look better.


Here I added more layering by having the ribbon lay under the petal of one of the flowers.  With the base stamp for the flower laying flat and by rounding the petals of the flower, I think the flowers look great.  I added gems and/or sequins in the center of the flowers.


I also used a shimmer spray to shimmer to the leaves and flowers.  Don’t miss out on getting this Happy Times paper for free with a $60.00 order and the stamp set for $17.95.  You’ll also be able to get the SOM for $5.00 with this order AND cutting guides/directions for layouts and cards featuring the paper and stamps.


Happy Times Card 3

Here’s the Card 3 from the Happy Times Card Workshop:

Card 3 wm

I’ve made two of them.  One following the directions and one using some different ribbon and gems from my stash.  Card 3a

Interestingly, while I have had the Metallic Markers for a bit, I’ve not used them much.  I have to say, I’m impressed at how nice they are and how easy they are to use.  Very easy to doodle with.  A definite must to add to your basic supplies!


My second Card 3 is:

Card 3b

I added distressing to the edges and used the black and gold ribbon instead of the white and gold.  I love the look of it with these papers.
