Beautifully Happy Stamp Set and Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper


I have found myself playing quite a bit with the Beautifully Happy stamp set and the lovely Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper from the Saleabration brochure.  I have coupled these lovely products together with some fun fold cards, and the results are stunning. I love them.

I love the color combination in this design. Blue and teal together - fantastic!  Coastal Cabana and Balmy Blue are bae! Throw in Fresh Freesia for icing on the cake!

The book binding fold is one of my go to’s. It is simple enough to do it and the result is stately. The Calypso Coral with the Mango Melody as a nice combination. Once again, add Fresh Freesia  to the mix to complete the look. 

And did you notice that flower from the Beautifully Happy stamped image above?

The solid flowers come in three pieces so that the single image can have multiple colors. Phenomenal, right?

The last Fun Fold here is super soft and spring-like.

Once again, the easel Fun fold  is easy to do but impressive.

Here’s another look at my favorite of the bunch.

If you would like to take a look at more Salebration products, you can see them here:

Tone on Tone Cane Weave Card

 This tone on tone CASE of the catalog is interesting, different, yet lovely.

It was my choice of project for my Facebook Live last Thursday, Jan. 12, 2023.

I used Orchid Oasis ink and a hint of cardstock to add pops of color.  I think it worked well, wouldn't you say?

I also used the Fabulous Frames dies, which are, well, FABULOUS. Also the Shaded Summer stamp set and dies.  I love the unique look of this card.


I share at least one crafty project with you on Thursdays over on my Facebook page.  You can join me here:

This coming Thursday, I am offering a FREE card class with a kit offering, as well.

If you would like a class kit, I will send one to you in the mail with supplies enough for 6 cards with the envelopes. Spend $35 in my online store and I will send you the class for free. You will get a PDF with color photos and full instructions. You will need the stamp set to complete the cards as shown.
