Hi everyone! Today I bring you a card set I made with only one stamp set. Happy Something is the name of this set and it is by Kal Barteski for Studio Calico. I ordered this because I thought it would be a great set to have in case I ever needed to make a quick birthday card. But when I played with the set, I couldn’t stop! I love the font and the “sketchy” look of the cupcakes and candles.
I also used the plastic that came with my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help me align the cupcakes right where I wanted them. I learned this tip from Maureen Wong, she has many YouTube videos that show you different tips and tricks on using the MISTI.
Here is the finished card. The striped background paper is from the September Skies paper pack by Heidi Swapp. When I picked this paper for the background, I grabbed some Copics that matched and colored in the cupcakes.
I loved how the colors came out so I went ahead and used the same Copics for the rest of the set.
For the next card, I just made a pattern using the four cupcake stamps and colored them in with the Copics. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Lavender Moon paper from PaperTrey Ink. For the last card, I used masking tape again to help guide me with the placement of the candles. I stamped the ends of the candle over the tape which didn’t matter because I ended up covering the ends with a piece of Smokey Shadow card stock. I heat embossed the sentiment with my VersaMark Emboss Ink Pad and Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder.
To finish off the card, I colored in the candles with the same Copics.
This set is perfect to have at the office or to give as a gift. I love the fun colors, the graphics, and the sentiments. I really enjoyed making this set and I hope the recipients enjoy them just as much!
