Stampin' Up! Happy Thoughts Thinking of You

Good mid-week, peeps. Today my card is inspired by three challenges, which I will list at the bottom of my post. I used Stampin' Up! Happy Thoughts Stamp Set and Unity's Daisy Girl Stamp Set to create my card.

I used my Blending Brushes to create three colors on a Basic White mat.
  • Mint Macaron
  • So Saffron
  • Blushing Bride
Then I ran the mat through my embossing machine using the Ornate Floral 3D EF.  Unfortunately, the camera doesn't pick up the EF's for the banners...Tasteful Textile 3D and Subtle (retiring soon). I adhered it to a Soft Sea Foam card base.

I used two squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies (sold out) to cut out Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron squares. The sentiment is stamped in Mint Macaron using the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set. The image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink using a stamp from the Daisy Girl set by Unity.

The "bling" is from the upcoming Genial Gems (available 5/4/21).
