Happiness Abounds

 Hello friends! Have you all had a chance to look at the new catalogue yet? What is your favourite bundle? I think one of my favourites is the Happiness Abounds bundle. I have a few but this is definitely one of my faves. Today's card features the Happiness Abounds bundle. 

I started by stamping the different flower and leaf images on to some Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper using Versamark ink. I added some black embossing powder from the Basics set. Then I heated it to melt using my heat tool. Once it had cooled, I watercoloured the flowers using Fresh Freesia and So Saffron ink and the leaves using Old Olive ink. I used the ink pressed on to the inside of the lid of the stamp pad and my water painter to colour the images. Once they were dry, I used the corresponding dies from the bundle to cut them all out.

I decided to add the water coloured images to a piece of Basic Black cardstock. I layered the Basic Black cardstock on a piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock and added that to a piece of Basic White cardstock that I cut out using the Scalloped Contours Dies. Before I added my flowers and leaves, I added a piece of Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon and tied it into a bow. Then I added the images using adhesive.

I used a Fresh Freesia card base and added a piece of Basic Black cardstock on top of that. Then I added the above piece using dimensionals.

I stamped my sentiment onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I used my paper snips to fussy cut around the words and added it to the front of the card using dimensionals.

Once the card was finished, I decided I needed to add some Wink of Stella to the flowers and leaves. It's kind of hard to see in the picture but in real life, it does add some pretty sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you like this card. I will be sending it to my Auntie. She needs to know that she is wonderful, especially now. Who is wonderful in your world that needs to know it?

Stay well and keep creating!
