These are some cards I made using the Happy Moments set. Its so versatile and as you can see can be used in a variety of styles.

The first card I made using the presents stamp.
I stamped the image several times on different sheets of Bashful Blue designer series paper, and then paper pieced the image together.
I then coloured in the linen thread using a Brocade Blue marker,
before tying it round each "parcel".

Stamps: Happy Moments, Sanded background stamp
Card: Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Paper: Bashful Blue designer series paper
Ribbon: Bashful Blue striped grosgrain
Embellishments: Hodgepodge Hardware

Birthday Card

The dotty background piece is made by punching holes in a strip of black cardstock and then backing it with Pink Passion and Pixie Pink cardstock. Helen used this idea on her card that was part of the In Love With Stamping January challenge.

I used the mat pack to space the holes evenly and then used the Cropadile and 1/2" circle punch to make the holes. The Whisper White cardstock was edged using the Border eyelet punch. Have I mentioned how much I love this punch! I find it almost impossible to make a card without using this punch at the moment LOL.

Once again I paper-pieced the image after stamping it on Pretty In Pink cardstock. The flowers were then coloured in using Pink Passion and Pixie Pink markers.

I wanted my ribbon to match the bright colours of the card so I used my Pixie Pink marker to colour in some white grosgrain ribbon. I also coloured in some flowers from the Pretties kit again using the Pink Passion and Pixie Pink markers.

Stamps: Happy Moments,
Card: Pixie Pink, Pink Passion, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ribbon: White grosgrain, coloured with Pixie Pink marker
Embellishments: Flowers from Pretties Kit
coloured with Pixie Pink and Pink Passion markers
Punches: Border eyelet punch, word window punch

Vintage Style Thank You card

I love this little birdcage stamp. And I thought it would go just perfectly with the Bella Bleu papers.
I made a scrunchie vellum flower (click on the classes tab above for a step-by-step guide on how to make these). I also coloured some Very Vanilla Ribbon with a Creamy Caramel marker to match the rest of my card.
All edges were inked using a sponge dauber and Creamy Caramel ink for a vintage effect.
