Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have two super cute projects to share with you using Bottled Happiness Stamp Set. The Bottled Happiness Stamp Set is in the 2022-2023 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog and can be found on page 16. Both projects today are SIP Cards, meaning I only used Stamps, Ink, and Paper to create them. I know that you are going to love them. Here’s a look at today’s featured projects and in this blog post I will give you some tips & tricks on how to recreate it as well.
For this week’s Simple Sunday with Rick post, I have two SIP Cards to share with you. I mentioned both these ideas during yesterdays Virtual Farmers Market Video; if you missed that post I will link to it here! So, I had to give them a try and decided to make them both SIP Cards just for fun.
Card #1 – A Rainbow of Bottles:
For the first card I created a rainbow SIP card using just the large bottle image for the Bottled Happiness Stamp Set. I used all of the ink pads in the Brights Collection except Pacific Point. So, I started out with Poppy Parade Classic Ink, and followed in rainbow order using Mango Melody Ink, Daffodil Delight Ink, Granny Apple Green Ink, Coastal Cabana Ink, Bermuda Bay Ink, and finally ending with Gorgeous Grape Ink.
I made sure that each of the bottle overlapped with the one before to give the illusion of real colored glass standing behind each other and the light coming through to cause all the transparency.
I finished off this card by adding the sentiment Let’s Get Into the Spirit in Tuxedo Black Ink stamped at the bottom of the 5 ½” x 8 ½” piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock.
Card #2 – Floral Rainbow SIP Card:
For this card I started off with a piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock still cut at the A2 size of 5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼” and stamped the first floral image from the Bottled Happiness Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink. I added the center layer of this building stamp set in Mango Melody Ink to create the first set of florals.
I repeated this process of stamping with the same colors as before using the ink color from the center layers to stamp the most solid floral image in the next set of flowers. The Ink combinations are as followed; Poppy Parade & Mango Melody Inks, Mango Melody & Daffodil Delight Inks, Daffodil Delight & Granny Apple Green Inks, Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay Inks, and finishing with Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape Inks. I did add just a little bit more of the Gorgeous Grape Ink at the bottom of the card to continue the card design.
To finish off this colorful SIP card I added the sentiment on a strip of Basic White Cardstock and simply stamped it in Tuxedo Black Ink.
Thanks for dropping by today I have all the supplies listed below to recreate these SIP Cards! Simple stamping is not just for the beginner it’s for anyone that wants to make a cute fast card. But as I write that I also want you to remember that simple stamping is great to learn and to start out if you are just starting your crafting journey. And remember that I am always here to help you.
Stampin' Up! Shopping List:
Alternative Ink Options:
If you are looking for an alternative to purchasing the entire Brights Classic Stampin' Pad Assortment the Classic Stampin' Spot Assortment is a great alternative and about 1/2 the price. Plus they are easier to store in a small space. And you get a great range of colors, from Basic Gray (which could be used for the sentiment) a few of the brights, and a couple of the regal colors as well.
