Happy Everything to You!

I love the greetings in Stampin' Up!'s set, On A Pedestal…they are so fun for a variety of different occasions!  This time I used it with the house from Stampin' Up! Good Neighbors and Welcome Neighbor Designer Paper, a couple of the Sale-A-Bration selections that were just available.  I figured I'd give my customers one more sample of using that set!  I love the colors!  My inspiration came from Amanda Coughlin's card in a recent newsletter from my upline, but I tweaked it somewhat.

 

This was one of the cards my Stamp Club made last month.  It features some of the products still available in the Occasions Mini Catalog, too…the Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon, the Pinking Hearts Corner Punch, the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder and the Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brads.  These are all available until the end of April.

 

I started with a base of Not Quite Navy cardstock and layered on Bermuda Bay cardstock that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.  I punched the corner with the Pinking Hearts Corner Punch.  I wrapped the Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon around to the back and secured.  I stamped the house on Whisper White in Not Quite Navy and Bermuda Bay and cut it out, then placed the Epoxy Brad over the door.  I used the Little Leaves Sizzlet for the leaves in Certainly Celery cardstock.  I had Linen Thread to hang the "birdhouse" from the branch.   I placed it on the Welcome Neighbor cloud designer paper pattern and layered that on Not Quite Navy cardstock.  Finally, I stamped Happy Everything to You from On A Pedestal in Not Quite Navy on Certainly Celery and punched with the Square Scallop Punch!  Hope you enjoy it!

 

My posting is going to be very sporatic over the next week.  I'm deep in wedding invitations and not finding time to stamp anything else.  My son and his fiance will be here over the next few days, and I have Easter dinner and a bridal shower this weekend that I still need to shop for.  CRAZY!  Things will get back to normal after Wednesday when they go home and hopefully take all the invitations with them!  Crossing my fingers!

This is adorable!  Love the idea of making the house into a bird house!  And I love the corner detail…great card!
