Happiness is ...

... having my computer back, which means I feel like doing things again, ie. stamping.

Last night I was playing around with my Happiness Background stamp (sample shown at the left), which was one of the sets we got at the Stampin' Up! Australian Convention held in Brisbane in April. I haven't done much with this stamp because it's kind of a stumper, but after cruising some blogs and Splitcoast stampers (and a major thank you to all those who are kind enough to share their wonderful creations with us all) had enough inspiration to make these (and they are kind of CASEd, but I can't for the life of me remember where from, so if they look like the might have been inspired by yours please let me know so I can either take them down or give you proper credit).

Firstly one of my favourite colour combinations, So Saffron and Rose Red. I wanted to get some Mellow Moss in here as well but it didn't happen. I have just cut the Happiness into strips and used them in different locations. The curly brackets are made with the Round Tab punch (this is a really cool trick, remind me to show you how sometime soon!).

And I know the main panel is crooked ... blame the lateness of the hour and me being in a hurry because my tv show was about to start and I wanted to finish up.

Supplies used: Whisper White, Basic Black, Rose Red and So Saffron cardstock, So Saffron and Rose Red ink, Happiness Background and Polka Dots And Paisley stamp sets, Round Tab Punch

The second is Tempting Turquoise, Cameo Coral and Certainly Celery - I used the Color Coach for this combination, and I'm not sure about it ... there's something missing, but I'm not sure what. But it was dead easy. The Coral piece along the back is just a strip from the Happiness stamp, cut in half so it would extend out to the edges of this landscaped card.

Love them! I've seen this set before and it's a stumper for me too. But I really like the way you've used it.
Would love to know how you made the brackets!
