It’s All About Happy

 

Hello TCP friends. Nancy here. I hope you are enjoying the digital and cutables Alma has produced this June. The biggest problem for me is deciding which ones to use first!

Using Photoshop Elements, I combined the gnome and the sentiment from the Bee Happy, Bee Gnome Digi stamp, then printed onto Copic friendly cardstock. I then cut with a octagon shaped die and colored with Copic markers. I created the background by using my Silhouette machine to cut the HoneyComb Coverplate Cutables from harvest gold cardstock, then cut for a bottom border only. I then added a strip of patterned paper at the top of the honeycomb border for added color. The image piece was attached using a layer of craft foam and a few enamel dots finished it up.

Copics: Skin-E000, E00, E02, E11; Beard-C00, C1, C3; Bee Parts-Y00, Y13, Y15, N1, N3, N5, BG70, BG10; Flower-Y000, Y13 Y35, T1, T3, T5; Leaves/Stem/Grass-YG00, YG03; Shadows-BG0000, BG000, BG70

For my second card I used some old nestabilities to die cut the round card base from patterned paper and cardstock, then used a stencil and spring rain ink for the cloud filled background. I used my Silhouette machine to cut the Happy Sun from cardstock and patterned paper and the sunshades from the Vintage Beach Cutable from patterned paper. The shades were attached to the sun with foam dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped onto the clouds and I added a few holeless sequins for a bit of sparkle.

That’s it from me today but I do want to end with a reminder about the physical products on sale. Be sure to take advantage of the fantastic prices while they are still in stock.
