Hi Stamping Friends!
It's Sunday Showcase time and this week I'm spotlighting the brand new, all-inclusive stamp kit called Oh Happy Day! Whether you're a brand new stamper or a seasoned stamper, I know you're going to love this amazing card kit!
It reminds me of the all-inclusive card kit that was introduced last year called Watercolor Wishes. They both are AWESOME kits and you'll have a wonderful stamp set that you can use over & over on future projects!
I Just Love The Oh Happy Day Card Kit!
Talk about a terrific stamping value! Create 20 bright & cheerful cards with this awesome, all-inclusive Oh Happy Day Card Kit! It includes a versatile greeting stamp set, Archival Black Ink spot, Daffodil Delight Baker's Twine, kraft envelopes, Dimensionals and all of the pre-cut, pre-printed layers & embellishments to create all 20 cards! You'll have everything you need—just add some SNAIL and Glue Dots or the Fine-Tip Glue Pen! Best of all, it's only $35! And, it all comes in a pretty storage box, so it's great for gift-giving!
All-Occasion Stamp Set Included—The Oh Happy Day Card Kit comes with this versatile, all-occasion, 13-stamp Oh Happy Day sentiment set, along with an acrylic block, that you'll be able to use over and over! Sweet!
Let's take a look at each card! I assembled them according to the full-color instructions that are included in the kit. Stampin' Up! makes it so easy for you! It took me about 2-1/2 hours to put together all 20 cards!
Full-Size Cards—The 20-card kit includes 5 full-size cards with envelopes. All of the card bases are pre-printed with a colorful pattern on one side and a solid matching color on the other side.
Die-Cut Layers—Each card comes with color die-cut layers, like the doily and banner shapes on this card. Some of the layers are gold foil for a little shine!
Embellishments—This card features several of the included accents, like baker's twine, sparkly hearts, and sparkly enamel dots!
Tusseling—Several of the cards use the "tusseling" technique for the twine. I like to add SNAIL adhesive to the back of the layer first, then wrap the twine around my fingers 3-4 times before laying it on the adhesive. Once I get the loops where I want them, I add Dimensionals to the back of the layer to help secure the twine into place.
More Sparklies—There are also little star sparkly embellishments, too!
Textured Layers—Check out the white background layer. This one has raised diagonal stripes like textured embossing.
Customizing Stamps—I customized this "why, thank you" to make it more versatile. If you look at the second card above, you'll see that it uses only the "thank you" part. You could do a masking technique as suggested on the Stampin' Up! video below, but I like using my Paper Snips to carefully trim away the one word. When you want to use the words together again, they fit together like a puzzle, so it's back to perfect alignment.
Tri-Fold Heart Cards—The kit comes with five 3-1/2" x 4" cards that open like a tri-fold card.
Here is a better photo of the how the heart-shaped front cover opens.
Sweet Accents—I live the colorful blooms die-cut accents on these sweetheart cards!
Note Cards—The kit comes with five 3-1/2" x 5" note card size cards.
Easy Stamping—It's easy to position the clear photopolymer greetings on the corresponding shapes or to fit them in windowed shapes, since you can see through them!
Mini Notes—The final five cards are 3" x 3" mini note cards, and they all have recessed windows with the sentiment stamped inside.
Matchbook Style—These mini cards have a clever matchbook-style opening. The small flap at the bottom tucks under the recessed window accent to stay closed. So cute!
Wow!—The cards in this mega kit make me so happy! This is the perfect kit for on-the-go stampers, new stampers, teens & tweens, retirees, or any crafter who wants to make super-cute cards super-fast! It also makes a fabulous gift!
