A Bit of Happiness

Well, apparently Spring has arrived in Central Texas! We really didn’t have a Winter, even for this area. Temperatures have been unseasonably warm this year (hope I didn’t just ginks us. It is Texas, after all…). Today, we received a lot of rain with more to come this week. Ed and I have been working on our gardens, both at the house and our plot at the community garden that we belong to. I definitely have Spring fever, so the next few posts will be a projects dedicated to this time of year.

I made the following card for a friend who has been in and out of the hospital for weeks. The stamp set I used is called “Honeycomb Happiness” and it is one of the sets you can get free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration. I love this lighthearted set. It is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face! See the tutorial below to make this card.

Honeycomb Happiness

1. Cut a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 Whisper White thick card stock in half to make 2 pieces measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.
2. Fold or score one piece of 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Whisper White card stock in half to form the card base measuring 4
1/4 x 5 1/2.
3. Add a strip of washi tape in desired color to right side of the card. Cut off the extra at both ends for a straight
edge.
4. Stamp the chick, balloon and sentiment on the front of the card base with Stazon ink.
5. Color the chick with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.
6. Use a Sharpie marker and make marks for the grass. Color with a Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.
7. Use the small balloon on the Balloon Bouquet punch and make one balloon out of Bermuda Bay card stock.(Note: the sample uses a color that is no longer available).
8. Color the left side of the balloon with a Bermuda Bay Stampin Write Marker to give it dimension.
9. Attach the balloon with a dimensional.
10. Don’t forget to sign the back!
