Surround yourself with happiness

Surround yourself with happiness.  Now isn't that a great tip for us all to follow?  Welcome back for my second sneek peek to the Snowflake Showcase, which includes two stamp sets, some thinlit dies, snowflake trinkets and some white velvet paper.

Today, I have used the Happiness Surrounds stamps and the thinlit dies to make this cute tent-shaped card.  I started with a blank sheet of Whisper White card (and I know that is quite daunting) and some ink pads and just stamped.  The stamps are photopolymer so it is easy to see through them to line up the images and position them in a repeating, interlocking pattern that soon fills up the page.  I stamped the largest image first and then filled in the gap in the centre of the medallion shape with a further two images.  So, even though that blank white page was quite daunting at first, in the end the
pattern building was quite addictive!

I am really pleased with my very own One Sheet Wonder designer paper using ink colours that are some of the newest to the Stampin' Up! collection.  I have used Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Balmy Blue.  Don't they look stunning together?  I've cut the large piece of patterned paper up into smaller, card sized pieces and then mounted and layered them up with matching card.  The small die cuts are topped with rhinestones and the larger one acts as a backdrop for that wonderful sentiment.  It is small, yet perfectly worded, and is the perfect finishing touch for my little tent card!

The Snowfall thinlet dies coordinate with both the Happiness Surrounds and the Snow is Glistening stamps (see my earlier post here) resulting in products that are useful for a huge variety of projects throughout the year.
